OK - so how much fun is it to replace the bottom seal with the steering box in situ?
As it happens, I have steering links etc loosely fitted at the moment, and the car is on axle stands, so I can reach it...sort of...lying on my back with limited elbow swinging room and clutching an LED torch between my teeth.
My 1600 GTV looks to have the Burman box, that model with the 'early' felt seal, I gather.
If the whole thing sucks, or the seals aren't available, the Penrite goop appeals mightily.
For PSK, a serious question - lubrication is about keeping a film between the contact surfaces, is it not? Wouldn't an oil/grease still mix do that? Surely all lubricant isn't dragged away from the bearing surfaces when turned because you use a grease mix? Forgive my ignorance, but cleaning grease off things when you WANT to remove it seems to take a fair bit of effort.
