Imp Transaxle oils by Shell Oil

It will soon be time to install the transaxle in the Fraser replica Imp,Rootes Competitions found out early on that you must only use Shell EP oils in the transaxles.

The lable says Spirax 80w90 grade oil.

The whole car was designed around Shell lubricants,quite an unususal idea but when I can I only use Shell Oils.


With the engine out its a good idea to fit a new carbon thrust bearing in the transaxle,I have been told that the bearing off one of the VW cars is the same size,it just needs the clip holes drilling in the spigot ends?
