My TF has a fitting on the rack where I can fill it with a gun. The wifes B doesn't have that fitting and as I remember it was a mess putting oil in it. Anyone discover a non messy way of filling one of these on a B? :crazy: PJ

Unscrew the fitting and pump the oil in? Make a dedicated oil-gun... OR use JD Cornhead grease. I've followed that discussion for a couple of years. Started using it myself this summer. Neat stuff.

Sorry no one got back to you sooner, but I've been looking for info I had when I was searching this a while back.

Didn't find it, but what I remember was the use of some sort of injector; loosening the boots at the ends of the rack and pumping the oil in.

There is no fitting! One on my TF, but none on the B. PJ

Unscrew the two bolts holding the plate with the spring/tensioner under it (be aware there could be shims in there) and pour some oil in.

Thanks Doc, that's what I wanted to know. Much appreciated. Last time I put oil in it was back in 05 when I restored the car and since then one of the bellows leaked. The old brain has gone numb, amongst other things and I couldn't remember how I did it. PJ
