    Hi Sheena As far as I am aware, it has mechanical rather than plated LSDs, mechanical diffs don't need LSD oil. Yes, you can use the same oil in the gearbox and diff. Cheers Tim

    Thanks oilman, from your recomendations I guess the RB320 has non-limited slip diffs in both axles ? Also can I use the same oil in the gearbox and both diffs ? best regards sheena
  5. oil

    Hi Yes, you need a 75w-90 GL5 oil. The Millers CRX NT, Motul Gear 300, Red Line 75w-90NS and Gulf Competition are ideal as top end options. The Millers TRX Synthetic/EE Nanodrive, Mobil SHC, Castrol Syntrax Universal Plus and Valvoline Synpower TDL are good, but a step down from the top oils. Fuchs Gear Syn, Motul Motylgear, Millers TRX Semi and Castrol Universal are good, cheaper options. Cheers Tim
  6. Hi everyone, I need some advice from you knowledgeable people. Which oil do you recommend for the gearbox, front differential, rear differential. The book says 75W90 GL5. I guess fully synth. Also if you are there Iggy, did you change the oil for the gearbox and diffs. when the engine was re-built ? Have not done many miles since the re-build so may not need to change the oils if you did it. Still loving the car Iggy !!!

  13. I ended up spending about £8k... but my project grew slightly once it was in bits and I got a bit carried away with "toys" for it To get it done properly with forged pistons, Cosworth Head bolts, air pump removal, Tumbler valve removal and a bigger oil pump you should be looking at around £5k for a future-proof engine Remember and factor in a re-map too if you remove the TGR and air pump... as it throws up a malfunction light
  14. Think it cost me about £5000. I had my block pinned too!
  15. Cheers guys apologies as a novice in such things , will call alyn tomorrow as not to far from myself any ideas on costs on this pls ? Normally would get 3 quotes as don't like my leg lifted but tbh would like work done sooner rather than later thanks again you lot are a god send
  16. See alyn at as performance he'll sort you out, you may as well get the block all decked ready for big power
  17. Sure that's not the first time the HG has gone on #247! I'd definitely consider getting the pistons forged, with uprated Cosworth stopper HG & ARP head-studs. Worth removing the secondary air pump, oil pump & depending on mileage maybe a clutch.
  18. Evening all looks like the HG gone on 247 , any recommendations in north east to get relevant work done pls ? Just looking to keep it stock and just replacing any weak spots prob get belts and pump done at same time any help would be much appreciated as always many thanks mark

Magnetic Sump Plugs from Gold Plug - The last drain plug you'll ever need! Another American company, Gold Plug was started in 2001, simply because they were fed up of not being able to find a good quality magnetic drain plug for their street bike engine that they had just finished rebuilding. After searching high and low, Gold Plug was born. Now, their daily mission is to supply the very best magnetic drain plugs to keep your vehicle running in the best possible condition. Why choose a magnetic oil plug over a standard sump plug you ask? Well, there's quite a few reasons actually. Every time you run your engine, there will be a build-up of contamination in the form of thousands and thousands of very small particles of ferrous metal. The main cause for these microscopic particles is friction, and you can imagine how much of this is generated when driving hard. To put things in perspective, an engine travelling at just 2000rpm sends the pistons up and down the bore 33 times per second. Imagine what a day on track is doing to your engine! The oil filter does its part in keeping these filtered, however, they can only filter out particles larger than 35 microns. These nanoparticles of metal suspended in the oil are considerably smaller than this, and to top it all off, the smaller the particle, the more damage they can do - This is because they travel pretty much anywhere in your engine when under hydraulic pressure. The only way to "trap" these particles is with very strong magnetism. You can find them HERE. If you fancy a look at exactly how magnetic sump plugs work, you will find a handy video on each product page. Have a look below for links to just a few of the vehicles they cover: - Subaru - Nissan - Mitsubishi - BMW - Honda - Audi - Mercedes - Toyota - Ford - Peugot - Mazda - Volkswagen - Renault - Volvo - Land Rover - Mini - Gold Plug have designed their range to fit over 100,000 cars and motorbikes, so if you need any advice on the correct one for you, then please get in touch. Why rely on just any old drain plug, when you can have one from Gold Plug that saves your engine from the wear and tear of metal particles? One last time, that code is: HG20 and is running until the end of March, so if you want to get 20% off either of these great brands, you'll want to get these orders in as soon as you can. It's also worth keeping an eye on our current offers page HERE. There are all sorts of goodies to be found! If you've got something a bit special and need a bit of advice, then give us a ring for a bespoke and impartial recommendation that is tailored to your specific set up. We're in the office Monday to Friday 8:30 - 5:30, on 01209 202 944 and You can also drop us a message on here. Until next time, Oilman
