Speerol Grease

Post  fender on Wed 30 Oct - 3:29

I am looking to buy some of this to grease my transmission but a search of local automotive shops has yielded nothing but disappointment.

What grade of speerol grease do I need and where can I buy it from?

Thanks.

Haynes say every 4000 miles but I think you can easily double that.

You have to take the wheel out, and remove the bevel box, remove a circlip and unbolt the B/Box. quite an easy job. The grease is very liquid, so having removed the existing and probably wrong type of grease, you spoon in the new stuff, about a quarter of the pot, enough to cover the bevel.
Take out the prop shaft, it was the spline going into the UJ that can seize and does need to move a bit.
Regards
Dave, BTW,that was a great T80 you picked up Mark.
