Well I put the Redline in the gearbox this morning.
Was quite an epic and glad I had my eldest there to hold the filler hose. I knew it wasn't going to be easy so I bought a couple of things in Halfords thinking either one would work:
1. Flexi spout filler
2. Jiggle Siphon
I needed both! The jiggle siphon was good for getting the oil out of the bottle and in to the gearbox, although I needed to cut the bottle a bit to be able to fit the jiggle siphon feed in to it - redline gave it a tiny spout!
So then I used the flexi spout filler and the other bottles of redline to top up the first bottle that was being used by the siphon. All in all it worked a treat, although we did have a couple of minor oil spills due to being a touch over keen on the refilling :blush:
I put in four bottles of redline (about 3.6litres) and it just dropped a little out of the filler at the end. I did notice however that we only had 3.2litres in the bottles in the end so it might have been a touch low in the gearbox.
I didn't get to drive the car yet as I'm still doing other jobs on it but I hope this will help the shift action a bit. Hopefully I will get my gearshift parts this week also and should be a different car by next weekend :cheer:
Will put up a 'how Two' later, right now I'm knackered!
