Re: clutch replacements on 156 q's
The required gearoil spec is: 75W90 GL5 Full Synthetic.
I'm using Redline 75W90NS in the gearbox.
Stay clear of pure racing gearoils as they will be too slipery for synchromesh gearboxes.
I'm also using Redline D4 ATF fluid in the Selespeed system.
The Selespeed system will need to be fully recalibrated using the Examiner system (it is also required to depressurise the system before work starts).
The gearbox will come out through the left wheel arch, so everything on that side of the car will come off.
I've read that some people have had the seals replaced in the Selespeed pump, Alfa don't list pump seals as a spare part though they just list the complete pump.
