TR6 Transmission Plug


Freshman Member

I'm about to drain and re-fill the transmission in my TR6 (first time, wish me luck). Is there anything I can/should do to the drain plug to reduce leaking?

I'm not 100% sure it's actually leaking, but it's always wet. Will know for sure when I measure the volume of oil that comes out.

In any case, should I apply teflon tape? Other?

Good advice on the fill point, thank you!

Anybody have a reference to a tapered plug that accepts an Allen key? My current plug is bulky and sticks out about 3/4". I will switch to a better plug if I can find one.
