    I used around 2.5 litres of 75w90 (courtenay recommend that oil) but you have a valid point about the 3L of oil, It wont do any harm and the box will run cooler..I was going to change the oil after first 1000miles anyway for good measure, May try to put in nearer 3L

    they take 2.7L of oil when you refill it as std if people put 2.4 in they are short on oil about a coke can's full
    I am going to drill an tap a oil cooler into my one so i can Run 5L of oil and put a small oil pump in to cool it all down when getting a hard time

    when i rebuild them boxes i get them done with all new bearings no need to change the oil on them as any bits of steel go to magnets in the box

    I just put 2,7 to 2.8 of oil back in till it's full up
    no point in saving £5 of oil for the price of a gearbox
