Cheers Alex, think I'll go for a 10w40, but a semi synthetic rather than the gulf stuff incase of crappy old seals. By the way there's a few of us going to the retro car shows at silverstone and Santa...

Cheapest I can find them is £73 for front and £54 for rears. Anyone know if you can buy both together and save a little?

Definately need the small triangle bit. From memory I don't think the bit with the hole for the gearbox fit properly either. I'll have to check.
