The capacity of the gearbox is 2.2 litres of GL4 oil. this gearbox does not have a level plug so the only way to ensure the correct level is to drain down the oil and then refill with the correct amount (2.2 litres)

I have attached a picture showing the drain bung, i will also send an image of the filler.

I hope this answers your question but I want you to be 100% happy with the answer so do please feel free to ask any further details by replying to this thread.

What weight would the oil be?

Hi

The oil is around 1 kg per litre, but the specification is not normally given in weight so it would be difficult to be precise on this.

Hi
