Gearbox and clutch fill points?

Post  devices on Sun Jul 27, 2014 7:12 pm

Falcon 87 (I think!)

Gearbox oil - fill point is the circular cover on the same side as the kickstart, correct?

Now, what about clutch fluid? behind the francis barnett logo cover plate on the same side or other? (I'll use ATF)

Cheers chaps.

Hole in one, devices - well two actually.  I always turn the engine over a few times and check both the levels after 1/2 a minute.  The 87 Gearbox has the main and lay shafts behind one another, so the low oil level is not much lower than the full.  I had a gearbox seizure on my '59 250 trials F.B, back in the day. It had more or less the same box and the oil level had only dropped a bit in the trial. Pulling in the clutch is not much use, you've just got to ride the slide, but I was cornering at the time. Surprised  Sad 

For those to whom it may not be immediately apparent, the G/Box level screw is to the rear of the Kick start and looks like a cover screw and the clutch; well you can't miss that.  Wink
