What happened with this?

[]Valentine Lynam

5th gear is whining, I'm inspecting the inside of the gearbox for wear.

[]Tom Armstrong

Only 5th? Probably something up with that gear only

I did it with a large injecter I bought on eBay, I wore most of the oil on myself and the tarmac. The wife was delighted with it...

[]Valentine Lynam

I don't mind it Robert it takes a while and if I get a spill I can catch it. I only paid 10 euro for this made up pump, it's better than 150

[]Robert Sixto

That's not bad, the thing I got was pretty cheap too. Anything beats trying to squeeze the fluid out of the bottle or using gravity via precariously placed funnels and hoses. Lol
