Opie recommended me these : Fuchs ATF3000, 5000 or Redline D4 in the gearbox (the manuals use ATFs) and the Castrol Saf-XO if it has an open diff. Does an oil change help with the gearchange? not got round to doing mine, its fine normally, but on the cold days it can be a bit stiff for the first few miles, obviously this is 'cos its thickening up due to the low temp, but would new oil help this?

Dont stick any old oil in your gearbox as there were some changes to the fluids used there is a sticker on the side of the box giving you the correct one to use.

Some use MTF and others ATF
