  3. I came off a round about last night in 3rd, put my foot down, got to about 5000 rpm and then sraight to the red line. Thought that my clutch had fell apart so stopped and tryed all other gears, all were there apart from 3rd and a nasty noise that sounded familiar from last time. Took my gear box out after work today. Going to strip it tomorow to see the damage, will probs have some picks for you all, hope there not as spectacular as last time haha. The good news is it only takes me an hour to get my gearbox out now haha

  12. It is klubersynth GH6-80 of Kluber lubrications, when you top it up spin the charger n check it again, keep doing it until the level stays at max
  13. if they are standard toyota brakes thats why they are squeeling, they always do. get yourself some upgraded brakes and you will be ok. get your wheel arch liner fitted properly, i lost mine at 90mph haha, and there about £75 from toyota.
  14. Why dont we just go? id like to see them try and kick 200 cars off the carpark haha
  15. Ye that sounds good, ye you can have a look, cant see much but il tell you were it goes, bit of a squeeze.
  16. the correct size is 215/45/17 but i have 215/40/17 prada spec2 on mine they grip well. Pressure should be 32psi.
  17. I dont mind dude, how long did it take us to get from mascrat to trafford last time?
  18. Put a new cold air feed in cos the standard one you have there comes from between the headlight and battery (its realy a warm air feed). if you take that one out you can fit a pipe under the headlight and into the bumper
  19. I will meet you all at mascrat too, we need to get to trafford early cos i think there may be a parking problem thistime haha
  20. It is easy too check, there is a level plug half way up the box, take it out using a 24mm spanner ind if it drips out its ok, if not stick your finger in and if the oil is on your finger it is ok. if not needs topping up On toyota service sheets it says check the oil every 40k

    Broken Gearbox

    Got some good news and some bad news, good news is i have ordered all the parts, they come on wednesday, bad news is its costing me £800 (so try not to blow your gearbox up). was thinking of getting a second hand box but there is always a chance that it will do the same thing in in the future. Thought it would be better to get all new parts so i know its right. Im getting a new output shaft because the gear is built onto it (the only one that is), a new ring gear, all new bearings because the oil full of metal fragments so it wont be long untill they get noisy. also getting a new 3rd gear syncro and selector sleve because thats a bit of funky sometimes. Should hopefully be back in this weekend, i have already stripped one of the shafts and im going to be going to work early everyday this week to get it done. Im just glad i can do it myself, id hate to think how much it would be if i wasnt in the trade

    Broken Gearbox

    not to bad to strip, you have to take off the 6th gear asembely befor you can get into the main casing. there was no sign of it going, didnt even notice the point it happened, just herd a noise. there is a bit of damage to the casing but nothing that a bit of rubbing down wont sort.
