Has the clutch gone already? That was an AP clutch from Ashcroft's not long ago and the gearbox oil was 15w40 changed at every engine oil change. Overkill, but I had a good free supply at the time!

I must change my picture as that is now yours!!

Hello Toby

not sure if the clutch is gone, had the trailer and the offroad wagon behind the V8 and was driving up (very steep) lanes into the forest on Saturday heading to an offroad event and I could smell the clutch.

was just getting part numbers as I knew Ralph would give me all the details.........................cheers ivan

Thought it was retired!!! I would be very surprised if the clutch was on its way out due to how long it has been fitted, but then I used to tow with it and had two dumpy bags of stone on my trailer going up some steep hills just before you had it, but never any smelly any clutch whiffs! The gearbox needs engine oil and not ATF/EP stuff. The box fitted is the better LT85 (solid case) with the oil pump, I just used to change it with either the Castrol or Shell engine oil depending what I had! There is a filter under the big plug also, but never saw any swarf in it.
