    just a couple comfort items.
    Sounds about right. When I did my rear diff. it was the same way, I think a lot of stuff from assembly lube and break in comes out with the first oil change. It was way dirtier than I expected. samples of oil from the second change are way cleaner, even with more mileage than I had on the factory gear oil.

    Working in an auto shop I have drained plenty of gear oil, and when clean gear oil is in a black drain pan it quite often looks greenish depending on how the light hits it, nothing to worry about. Pour it into a lighter colored pan and the green goes away. Probably something to do with the reflective qualities or some such nonsense.
    Topping it off with a different oil won't cause a problem either, 80-90 and 75-90 are practically the same stuff anyway. I would avoid mixing synthetic and dino oils though.
