    Default Gearbox oil change...no more juddering

    What a difference changing the gearbox oil made. Didnt look like it had ever been done, was jet black. Sooo smooth now. Couldnt get the drain plug loose so had to suck the old oil out of the fill hole but was easy enough ��. Worth a go for 14 and an hour of free time.

    My 451 was much better with new gearbox oil a few weeks after I bought it though I suspect the possible reason was that there was none at all in it when I got it.

    Ha ha

    I was actually surprised mine was still full and no metal shavings in the old oil at all. Not many jobs left now, gonna be bored. Fuel filter and some decent speakers next...then thats it (fingers crossed)

    There is alarge magnet inside your transmission. Purpose of this magnet is to collect metal shavings. Looks like this:

    Of course changing transmission oil won’t result in any gear change improvement.

    No its still as painfully slow as ever, just driving a little bit closer to when it was new after years (by the woman we sold it too) of neglect.
