Re: [DML] Re: Jumping Out of 5th Gear

This is going back 4 years and 15,000 miles, and it's one of the 
slickest D boxes to this day.

Given the metal fragments that are likely to hav ebeen generated are 
bits of the casing, wouldn't a magnet be kind of pointless?!

The gear oil was changed out twice before doing any real miles.

That box is coming out with the engine when the turbo lump goes in 
there. I have a strengthened Renault 30 box with 3.8 final drive ready 
to go in.
