Hi i have just bought myself an s reg lt35 good condition but  the gearbox seems at fault, heres what it is, when changing gear if i inadvertantly push at the gate(because i am not use to it yet) i get a metal to metal dry bearing noise, in other words when th eengine is at idle with clutch in, i push the gear lever in neutral all the way to the left to the stop, now if i gently push on it there against the stop i get a whining noise like a dry bearing, this tell me (i think ) that it may be the selector bearings on the selector shaft, any one know this or had the same problem because when i am driving it i get the same noise at times when the engine just gets under load ie when letting the clutch out and the same when starting  the engine or turning it off just a noticeable "squeak" for a split second, i am hoping that just the oile levels low as i am getting it checked in the morning, and if the selector shaft is in the top of the box that might explain it.

Just got my m8 to get underneath and have a look and rear oil seals gone so box is short on oil, does anyone know how easy it is to fit a rear oil seal?

Hi Squarebanana
 
The rear seal can be done in-situ. Your have to drain the oil  ( if you have any ), remove the prop and lever the end seal out ( taking care not to damage the internal bore )  . Plenty of oil on the running edge of the new seal and tap it into place gently ( ideally get a piece of wood and bore a hole slightly larger than the output shaft then you can drive the seal in square ).
