Mantaboy83 Posted June 1, 2009 Share Posted June 1, 2009 Now that my Manta is back on the road I'm noticing things that need attention. 1: The gearbox mount is knackered which in turn has caused the gearbox - propshaft seal to deteriorate and leak. How difficult is this seal to change? As for the mount, I want to replace it with a bespoke one like what is shown in this link http://www.vxopel.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=4430, as I understand that getting hold of a genuine one is rather hard and costly. There are a few rattles and strange noises coming from the gearbox at the moment, which I think have stemmed from the above problem. Hopefully they will go away once I've changed the mount and topped up the oil. 2: I've just changed the oil and filter on my Red Top engine. It's now got 5w40 fully synthetic in it. Although it runs better and feels more responsive, being a bit worn it is quite noisy. Would an oil additive like Wynn's Oil Treatment be ok to use to cure this?
