        1)  What is the best oil type (Gear or Motor oil) and additive to put 
in MGB
non-overdrive transmission to quiet noise ???  I' am currently using Amsoil
20w50 with PTFE - adding the PTFE made it shift smoother but it still makes a
lot of noise which is transmitted through the shifter to my ear.
        2)  Is it possible to tell if just replacing carb throttle shafts will 
fix a
carb throttle shaft vacuum leak without buying the new shafts ??  Carbs are
HIFs (AUD550).  Is there a shaft bore measurement I can take??

Thanks in Advance,  Skip '74 B
