Stag, gearbox

On the Stag, well, have you ever owned an early TR7?  If not, I'd say
the Stag is *NOT* the car for you.  However, I'm sure you'll hear from
others on this list about that :-)  Too bad such a nice looking car
had to be saddled with such a monstrously unreliable engine...  They
would've probably sold billions of them if they had put the ROVER V8
inside the engine bay...

The GM fluid probably won't solve your noise problem but it *IS* a very
nice "upgrade" to do to the transmission.  People in the TR8CCA have been
using it with no trouble for at least a couple of years now.  *I* would
recommend switching over right away.  FYI, the factory fill should
be straight 75W (find it at a Saab or Volvo dealer).
