Hi guys got a new box fitted to my LTD today
im pretty sure the place that fitted it is pretty good
but i just want to double check a few things

my car is a 90 LTD and they fitted a box from an EL falcon
does the box from that model have a dip stick?
i know its a stuipd question but we look tonight and i didnt see one

i will quiz the mech on this 2morrow

the model number is BTR 94 DA 7000 BB

does that sound like its from an EL falc or EL series?

Nup they didn't have a dipstick, so yeah sounds like it might be from an EF-EL.

A.F.A.I. EF's still have dipsticks. Or at least Series 1 do.

If it's out on an EL, then no dipstick.
Usually people call them transmissions when taling about automatic and gearbox when talking manual - just for future, makes it a bit easier! :)

I think that's why the dipstick was removed - to stop back yard mechanics as they were stuffing up a lot of the boxs by using the wrong oil, but if it's just been fitted you should have to serivce it for a while
easiest way to serivce it is to pop down to repco get the service kit, like $50.00, sopme Castrol TQ95 (I think that's the right oil, double check), raise the car, undo the pan, swap the filters and what not over, do it all up again and top up.
I dunno how you'd top it up, there's probably a plug or something were the dipstick used to be. or maybe the transmission cooler lines? but how would you know when it's full? you';d have to measure how much oil you remove and put in the same amount
