[Healeys] Gearbox oil

Check the prices on Ebay. Sometimes they have good deals on Redline. 
I'm not sure what all the fuss is about how much to put in. My dip stick has a high and low mark. I just fill to the high mark. Am I missing something?
Also I don't think the gear box will get hot enough to cause much expansion. Multi grade oils are most efficient when engines are heating up from cold (needing the lower weight) to hot when lower weight oil will be to thin. Most multi grades have detergent which will foam with agitation and keep debris in suspension as apposed to allowing it to drown out of harms way. This debris is an abrasive which causes gear wear. This being from lecture notes taken 30 years ago and oils may have changed.

Thanks for all the advice.Seems like I’ll go for somewhere a bit below the filler plug, but otherwise the more the merrier.Curiously, my gearbox doesn’t drip. Maybe it’s a Toyota and I just never noticed!Redline costs a fortune over here. Too much.Simon
