Probably one of those questions that if you ask 10 people you get 11 answers!!

You are right about EP oils not being suitable, Morris Oils of Shrewsbury do a straight mineral gear oil (AG series) which are ok for older gearboxes – I use Morris A.G. 140.

I think Roger Moss uses Castor Oil – but then he is racing and I know nothing of the pro’s and con’s of using castor oil – I’m sure Roger can enlighten you (and the rest of us)?

Morris Oils can be contacted at: Castle Forgate, Shrewsbury, SY1 2EL. 01743 232200 or http://www.morrislubricants.co.uk. The web site is well worth a visit just for general interest, but it may well also answer some fo your specific questions.
