Default FL2 Engine oil

Well yesterdays dry day was taken advantage of by doing a quick engine oil and filter change from today and over the weekend the rear diff, PTU, and the Haldex, gearbox oils will be changed.


Exhaust will be rubbed down also, and painted up.

Awkward oil filter so used the tool i made to do the job


New O-ring fitted and a little new oil on the O-ring before re-fitting the oil pot and filter.




New copper washer for the oil drain plug.


Make sure oil filter is fitte3d correctly then add new oil.

Move onto the oil changes above today and this weekend.

I didnít wash the car, nor did I look for the rear abs sensors with any enthusiasm. However, I continued my unproductive search for a 75 auto tourer.

was hoping to drop the sub frame and gearbox but so many difficulties. The gearbox in now has a problem staying in 3rd; the clutch has gone etc. Have a different gearbox + clutch kit but 1st time I have tried to work on the gearbox; there seems to be lots of salt spray corrosion on the aluminium bit. When (if?) i get it apart will so some spraying with waxoyl before it all goes togather again.

On the way to the 25th Anniversary Meeting at The British Motor Museum, I failed to plan, and missed the wonderful photo-opportunity of capturing the odometer reading of 081810 (after missing 081180 some time last week!)... AND during my return journey the equally note-worthy reading of 82000.

A couple of weeks ago I curbed a wheel on my ZT-T.
I repaired the minor damage and repainted the wheel then,
of course found that the hubcap colour no longer matched, and the
remaining 3 wheels looks a bit scruffy so I decided to repaint the lot.
I got the hubcaps done then ran into a week of cold, rainy weather so nothing got accomplished,
and now that the weather has improved I have a ferocious cough and cold
so nothing is getting done. sigh*
