oil and tail shafts

can anyone plz tell me an easy way to put oil in my gear box
while its still in the car.(stupid me should have done it before i put it in the car)
also does anyone know if there is any differance between tail shafts? i changed from auto to manual (box) and i have the shaft from a 6 cyl manual sedan and the shaft from the wagon which was a 6 cyl auto
(sorry the wagon is the car that im doing up if i have confused any one)
cheers ROB250

you can buy a oil sucker pump from repco or any decent tool shop for about $40 dollars it like a little yabby pump with ahose on it,if you dont want to spend that get a little funnel and put a long hose on the end down through your engine bay and fill it that way.
if the shaft fits properly it will be okay depending on what you are going to do with it,if its not its easier sometimes to get anew one made than try to chase a secondhand one.

Re: oil and tail shafts

another way i've done it is pinch the little hand pump which comes on liquid soap bottles, extend the pickup with a bit of hose and stick another bit of hose on the outlet to go in the filler plug. takes a while but it's gotten me out of the $hit on a couple of occasions. well, out of the $hit with the car, in deep with my missus. slow and steady wins the race :)
