Re: Rover LT77 gearbox oil

Re: Rover gearbox oil

Re: Diff rebuild - tools required

A couple of tips - if you put the half shafts in the freezer (ideally cleaned first!) and get them really cold they contract in size enough to slip the new bearings on easily without heat,hammers etc. - best to use new half shafts as I found out in the middle of France . There are loads of helpful M...
