Hello All,

      I'm currently in the final stages of reassembling
my 66Tiger 1A, (which I bought in a basket case condition)
and have several questions that I'm sure most of you can
help me along with.

I have the shop manual, but there is nothing better than 
hearing from owners and what they have done / used.

1) What type of oil is best for 4 speed top-loader
   transmission? How much (pints) is required ?

2) I've replaced both upper and lower ball joints on the
   front end, they come with nuts that have plastic
   lock off's at the very end. The problem that I'm 
   having is when the thread reaches this portion of the 
   nut, the ball joint threaded shaft spins and I can't 
   torque down the nut properly. Any suggestions ??

3) I've also took off and cleaned up and now replaced
   the rubber boots on the steering assembly. I would
   like to replace the fluid in the rack + pinion 
   assembly since its probably very old stuff in there.
   What type of fluid ?  And how much ?

Any help at all would be much appreciated. I was hoping
to complete the car by Hot August Nights weekend, but
I think I will be off by several weeks.
