Hi All,

Just changed the tranny/not rear diff oil. I used Redline MT90 for 1.9liters
($38.16CDN) and some leftover Redline MTL for the remaining 300ml. So I
guess I have MT87 or something. Anyways, it still whines a bit. I've only
driven 5km with it though. Only 1.5liters or so came out. I think it was
Mobil GL5.

How long does it take to quiet down (if it's going to)? I would imagine not

Finding that 17mm hex socket was tougher than I thought. Ended up buying it
at an industrial tool store ($20CDN!). Canadian Tire, Sears, Home Depot
didn't have anything bigger than 10mm.

All the oil went in with a nifty little fluid pump I bought years ago for
15$CDN. One hose in the Redline bottle, the other in the tranny. Pump away.
Works great.

Total cost: $58.16CDN. Not cheap, but worth it, I hope.

Besides, if I'd gone to a garage they would have charged me $20 labour.
Instead, I get to keep this cool socket for the same price.
