I work with a friend who owns an AEC Regal (HHP755, ex-Greenslades of Exeter) that has been off the road for many years. We are in the process of restoring it, and putting it back on the road. We would appreciate some pointers as to what oils to use in the gear box (pre-selector), and in the diff.

Any answers would be greatly appreciated.

For those who are curious about our vehicle, you can go to the flickr website and enter the registration (HHP755).

Thank you.

Gearbox - a Leyland specification E oil such as Morris Lubricants Multitrans BC
Back axle - a straight 140 worm gear oil NOT a Hypoid or EP which will eat out the phosphor bronze differential!

Really good to see your progress on restoring this fine coach which I remember well in service and once rode on a Greenslades mystery tour!

Thank you for your response, Philip. Stay tuned to our progress. We hope the AEC will make its public debut at the AEC Society rally at Newark at the end of May in 2016.
