  1. Thank you! I can only assume it was a bit over filled but no idea how. Anyway it was brown and silty so I have decided to syphon off what I can and fill up with new stuff. The confusing bit is that I started all this as I had a leak with red liquid and thought it was the gearbox and now I still have to hunt for the mysterious red liquid...
  2. Help, undid the bung and brown gear oil has come pouring out... I thought this was the filling point not the drain plug?
  3. Ok all done, and ready to put the oil in, I have the comma gear oil sx75w-90 GL4, but it’s clear and not red... is this right?!
  4. Thank you all for your help! Especially Stephen with the detail and digging out that diagram! I will have a go tomorrow, squeeze bottle, oil and another set of car stands ordered so I can try below first. Have a a great weekend all!
  5. Hi All, I have a K-Series factory built westfield and assume I have a type-9 box (I don't know if having a rover engine would mean that I have a different box but doubt it). I have a very mild gearbox leak and keen to see if I need to top up my oil. From what I can read, there is no way of telling if you have enough oil in the car but get some more oil and fill it up until it overflows... can anyone tell me if this is right?! On a separate note, I understand that the gearbox filler is a pain to get to and the best way is to drill a hole in the footwell - again any advice would be much appreciated. Many thanks, Josh
  6. Ian any possibility of doing a Sunday run instead as it is better weather
  7. Sounds like fun, please count me in!... just need to find a co-pilot.
  8. Thanks @Ian Tolfree (tolf) - North London AO These would be the right size for me
