I'd probably go for the Redline MTL or Amsoil MTF.

Hi, got a forged low comp engine with race bearings, etc going in car very soon. Car will be used on road and occasional track. It's freshly rebuilt and think it will be mapped straight away maybe ran for a few minutes before just to be sure it starts, leaks, etc. What oil do you think should use and when should it be changed after first start?

I'd use the Millers CRO at first (first 500-1000 miles), then when it's run in go for something good like the Millers CFS, Redline, Motul 300V or Gulf Competition.

Put some 10w40 fully synth in, adjust the tappets while you're at it. Chances are it won't be much quieter though.

I would try a decent 5w-40

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

Out of those, the best ones are the Fuchs/Silkolene Pro S, Millers CFS/CFS NT, Motul 300V, Redline and Gulf Competition. The Motul 8100 X-Cess, Millers XFS, Fuchs GT1 XTL/Supersyn, Shell Helix and Mobil Super 3000 are good, cheaper alternatives.

Cheers

Tim

Any recommendations for my gearbox oil? I'm currently rebuilding it with all new synchros, bearings and a quaife diff... Used purely as a road rally car so is worked hard for almost a continual 100+miles a night with constant high rev gear changes with a paddle clutch. Oil gets changed every 2 events so nothing massively expensive! haha!

With the Quaife diff and long sessions that it's seeing, I'd go for the Fuchs Syn 5 or SRG 75

What oil would you recommend for a gripper dog box and plate diff, for Motorsport use?

What oil spec does Gripper give? They recommend two different oils, depending on the bits you use.

Cheers

Hi

You need an MTF for the gearbox and I would go with the Redline MTL, Amsoil MTF or Fuchs Sintofluid.

Hi Jannick

You need an MTF for the gearbox and the best proven options are the Red Line MTL, Amsoil MTF or Fuchs Sintofluid. The Millers TRX 75w-80 and Motul Motylgear are good alternatives.

Oilman,

I've recently bought a 1996 106 Rallye S1 (1300 screamer). It's been prep'd for Endurance Road Rallying and that's what it will be doing next year. Any recommendations for engine and gearbox oil....and how often would you change it?
N.B I'm quite old so I probably won't be taking it to +7k between each gear change.

Out of those, the best ones are the Fuchs/Silkolene Pro S, Millers CFS/CFS NT, Motul 300V, Red Line and Gulf Competition. The Motul 8100 X-Cess, Millers XF Longlife, Fuchs GT1 XTL/Supersyn, Gulf Formula G/ULE, Shell Helix and Mobil Super 3000 are good, cheaper alternatives.

As a budget choice, a 10w-40 will be fine and I would either go for the Fuchs Syn MC, Shell Helix, Millers Trident/EE Nanodrive, Castrol Magnatec, Mobil Super 2000 or Motul 6100

Hoping this thread will still be answered.
I have a 1.6 8V rallye engine, standard J cam with S1 rallye inlet system, running a group N chip up to 8000rpm and lightened flywheel/clutch setup. 4-2-1 raceland manifold, decat pipe en powerflow stainless steel exhaust system. Running a recently (not used yet) reconditioned S1 rallye gearbox with quaife ATB LSD. Fast road use.
What are recommended oils to use and their brand please?

Is Triple QX Fully Synthetic Plus 5W40 any good for the engine?

Hi

I would use a 5w-40 synthetic in the engine.

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

Out of those, the best ones are the Fuchs/Silkolene Pro S, Millers CFS/CFS NT, Motul Sport/300V, Red Line and Gulf Competition. The Motul 8100 X-Cess, Millers XF Longlife, Fuchs GT1 XTL/Supersyn, Gulf Formula G/ULE, Shell Helix and Mobil Super 3000 are good, cheaper alternatives.

You need a 75w-80 for the gearbox and the best proven options are the Red Line MTL or Fuchs Sintofluid. The Millers TRX 75w-80, Valvoline and Motul Motylgear are good alternatives.

We do not deal with Triple QX, so I don't want to comment on their oils.

Cheers

Tim

2 liters or 1.9 should be enough for the MA gearbox, depends on whether the gearbox is drained or completely empty (after a rebuild) let's say.
There's a side plug, level should be same to that plug, i.e. when oil starts overflowing out. There's a refill cap on the top of the gearbox, the black plastic round thingy next to the mount/clutch lever that you can pull off and use to fill the gearbox with oil. You can use the side plug either for filling though. Car should be level too of course.

Slightly less than 2L, I think it's 1.9 according to the Haynes, and about what I actually used.

Well, if you use the side plug to measure, then you will always be sure. You also need to give the oil time to settle, so don't add oil too fast. If you would first measure 2L and start from there, and slow down once getting close to the 2L, then you will never add too much.

Hi Oilman, im an overseas customer from your site, for my other car, Honda S2000 and now for the 106 Rallye.

i want ear your opinion this weekend i fitted a quaife lsd to my rallye gearbox, and for the gearbox oil i´ve choosen the Millers Oi lCRX LS 75w90 NT. Yesterday i had trackday time at Estoril Circuit, and it wasn´t hot weather, 10/12 degrees celcius, a bit of rain, and i´ve noticed that i had some type of "foamy" coming from the breather of the gearbox. What´s your thoughts about this, was the oil fried inside, to make this foam coming out of the breather of the gearbox, and isnt suited for my aplication?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers.

Bruno Fernandes
