    Inhaling his aluminium fumes I imagine. How many bell housings would it take to fill a chassis I wonder?

    You seal the drain holes with epoxy putty, drive around until the solvent has come out of the Dinitrol, and then remove the putty.
    Works well.

    Engine oil works OK, if it is cleanish. Obviously, it is necessary to limit the quantity to prevent overspill.
    If I was going to use oil, I would use used gear oil, or even chain oil, which is quite sticky.

    I think , the problem is that a lot of peeps do not allow for the cleaning of the inside of the chassis. It is amazing how much mud they can contain.

    Best applied to a newish chassis, or thoroughly washed out. Not everyone abuses a chassis like you do. Most silt will be only in the rear section if you don't drive through water.
