Ive have had these dramas lately, unless you flush it you won't get it all back in there. I don't flush mine though, but have found filling and running gears 3-4 times at around 40 C fluid temp gets most in there. Also, a quick easy drive and letting sit a night and I can usually get at least 500ml plus in when its just starting to warm up. I doubt its the fluid even though I do use the Gulf Western SYN TS as well.

I've just gone out to the shed and measured the oil that came out of the trans. I put a full 4 litre bottle into it after dropping it and this is the level of the old oil, plus 200ml of extra fluid from the pump that I tipped in the drain pan. My thumb is at the 3 litre mark. I think it could still be a touch low, given this picture.

 

I made sure the filter was in and up properly with no old seal left behind.

 

I'll drop it again tomorrow, mod the filter intake and see how I get on.

The steel pan filter intake is roughly half the stock size and I've heard of transmissions not working well due to aftermarket filter restrictions.

Yeah I know with mine I could get the filter in place, looked ok but after a few minutes it dropped again. The only way was to secure it into position with the lock wire.

See how you go tomorrow with oil.. From memory mine took closer to 6l when I flushed it.

Penrite bmv. I got 4 litres into the trans and it said nope.

 

I've picked up a couple of bottles transmax and at $108 for 4 litres I hope it works a bit better.


Dudeeeeee Why lol !!

 

There’s x3 oils that work in a ZF and only x2 I would recommend 

GW all day erry day bro ! 
 

ZF filters don’t need lock wires or any props, Get the right filter, no modification to inlet required,the right oil

do it correctly and zero issues

Cos #noob I spose. It's going on the hoist on Saturday so I'll get some GW and sort it out then.

 

I'll be sure to wire the filter too while I'm at it.

I tried that yesterday to start with and fluid came out, then today I added another litre by jacking the back up higher than the front.

 

Based off the pics I took, it looks like it will want about 5 litres from a pan drop.

 

I've gone to a different filter and pan though so a different amount of fluid needed isn't that strange.

Springs arrived today. Gonna fit them on Saturday. If the timing is good I'll see about dropping the exhaust and seeing how much of a difference it makes on the dyno. No promises though :)

I used Transmax Z when I got mine flushed. The strange wharr noise (sounded like a pump whine!) was still there after having it done so about 6 months later I poured a bottle or so of Lubegard in and another 3 months or so later I then used a chinesium speedflow fitting with barb and hose to pump the khunt full with 3lts more of the Transmax... Was as doughy as phuck but the noise disappeared after a short while (I have nfi how long, I can't remember yesterday). I then emptied roughly 3lts out and said yep!
It's IMPOSSIBLE to get the level right on these gearboxes when you live in a temperature hotter than the check level... It's at burn your hand off point by the time the engine is started and run through the gears so I just go off the She'll be right method.

Looking forward to seeing exhaustless Dyno Data ;) 

 

Hey Nath is the Territory Turbocharger in the correct FG rotation or a bit of a in between B series rotation ? 

 

From memory compressor outlet is facing up to the bonnet like FG rotation but the CHRA is anticlockwise say 20* from typical CHAR rotation ... memory is fuzzy lol hence the ask

Oil "in" on the top and water down the left side (wheel arch side) from memory.
I keep having a turbine bolt on the housing that lines up with the water banjo keeps coming undone. It's the only thing stopping it from falling out so need to get some blue liquid loctite... 2bf296fa816a2ffc8956cafa53f53aa3.jpg

The chra and comp cover are as per the picture there. Mine is a hair off as I did a bunch of turbo disassembling and reassembling, and although I marked it, the comp cover did end up pointing toward the engine a little bit more. Chra is lined up though obviously.

 

I think it'll max out the fuel system with no exhaust but I guess we'll see.

Now that I think about it, I haven't tightened the actuator up at all so it'll probably stop around 26psi give or take.
