Re: Noobie 2016 cT oil questions. TransMission dipstick

Postby JNRIII » Sat May 27, 2017 10:52 pm

My 2014 T doesn't have a dipstick in the trans, just a plug with a magnet. Was that maybe wrong from the factory ? Other members have mentioned a dipstick in the trans . Should I buy one from parts ???? Thanx JNRIII

Magnetic plug on the transmission fill is normal, fill to bottom of threads. The magnet on the fill usually picks up more swarf than the one on the drain plug. I'd just stick to the factory recommendations for oil in the engine, trans and rear until you get a good feel for what you want change.
past afflictions include TR motocars and bikes, R60/2 & a R65, MGs, and a Citroen.

Engine: 20W-50, or 20W-60, fully synth.
Gearbox: 75W-90, fully synth. Thicker makes cog swapping a bit smoother.
Final drive: 85W-140 gear & rear axle oil. Again thicker discourages it leaking out past the input shaft seal*. For the same reason, only fill to 20cc less** than what the book says (capacities are different depending whether 1wd or 2wd). E.g. 1wd, 90cc; 2wd, 110cc (I think).

I wanted to know, why gear oil 75w90 in the trans? I think the manual says 20w50

Also, why 85-140 in the rear end ? Again I think the manual says 75-90 .

Can you explain your experience and reasons for a newbie ?????

The tricks on Ural are!
Use the very cheap wal-mart or wallyworld oils But change oil often, often!
Take it from a guy that owned a few ural
Unlike Darell he used very expensive oil. :lol: in Babe
