    PRM 150 oil change

    Are yes, Duckhams Q 20/50, I remember it well. It was green & had a really nice smell.

    It was you that said your oil comes out black, now you say it's not black but dark green. Make up your mind, people on here are trying to help you avoid a possible problem looming in your gearbox.

    There is a road in Attleborough, Norfiolk called Sluts Hole Lane. I wonder if anyone lives at No. 69.

    PRM 150 oil change

    I'd be very worried if the oil came out of my PRM 150 gearbox black. It always comes out looking the same colour as it went in on mine. I assume you change the oil at the correct interval. Maybe your box is being contaminated by a leaking oil cooler or has run on a very low oil content and is overheating. Does it have the correct oil type ie engine oil and not EP gear oil. ?

    PRM 150 oil change

    I think you have not taken in account that the oil film prevents metal to metal contact. You are correct that the first oil change is very important though.

    Mine is 2008 and it doesn't. Why would you need one anyway, The gears are constant mesh and the clutch plates are bronze so nothing likely to attract to a magnet.
