How to top up gearbox oil?
I would like to do this but can't see how I can get the bottle filler neck near the opening of the box. One way is to extend the filler neck with a long pipe and fill from the rear wheel well. How do you do it?

RE: How to top up gearbox oil?
we use a long pipe with a funnel attached, 2 people, needed, pour into funnel until the gearbox oil over flows from from the hole, then it is full, drive around the block, check to see if it is still full, top up if needed.

I may be a mechanic, but i can't fix stupid
Bad planning on your part does not make your issue an crisis to me
Bad workmanship by other garages does not entiltle you to better rates at me
Syncro, syncro , syncro and more syncro, this is the syncro way of life

Thanks Stuart. I thought maybe there is an inspection hole in/near from inside of the bus for this.
