I've got motul Gear300 in my box too :)
I'll put in some Motul 90PA in the diff soon.

I have just ordered mine now. Nicely recommended Redline Lightweight Shockproof Gearoil in the Gearbox, i ordered 3 Quarts which is just less than 3 litres 998ml per quart i think.

Also ordered 2 quart of Redline heavyweight shockproof gearoil for the diff.

Think viscosity is something like 75w-90???

Sorry dont mean to hijack the thread but whilst on the subject of oil, i was wanting to put a filtermag on the filter.....but trying to find the sizes. Does anyone know the size of the filter?

Is it a) 63-70mm
b) 70-87mm
or
c) 87-99mm

Phone a friend, Ask the audience or 50:50...........:D

Also does anyone use a mag on the gearbox plug?

Helical Diff
1.2-1.4 litres

Viscous Diff
1.7-1.8 litres

The workshop manual recommends Helical diff oil be changed every 40000 km/24 miles or every 24 months. I says the Viscous oil just needs inspecting regularly, but I'd recommend the same as the Helical.

6MT gearbox
1.8 litres (overfilling to 2 litres from the top will give a smoother gear change)

5MT gearbox
2.4 litres

4AT gearbox

7.9 litres

The manual also says to inspect and change if necessary for the gearbox. I'd say change at the same time as the diff :)


Just get a Nissan filter :) Its fairly cheap and good.

The drain plug key is 13mm

Fill from the gear shift cover (which is easier and quicker anyway). You will need a 12mm flexi-necked ratchet spanner to undo the bolts :) I'd also recommend extending the gearbox breather slightly by sticking on a hose from the breather end and hooking it over the brake lines on the firewall :)

True. But that's the case with most aftermarket things :) For the 90% who don't run an aftermarket diff, its true ;)
