I guess you were puzzled on my topic, correct? Well, I did my first GB oil change on my LT and this is how I found the magnetic plug.
I would like to ask all of you the experienced LT users, does this mean big trouble for me or it is normal for 89350 km(55515 mi) on my LT gearbox? I need to remind you that I bought her second or maybe even third hand(not sure) used.
Also I notice some vibration between 4 to 4.5K rpm when travelling on perfectly flat roads. Below this it's not present, above this it minimizes to even un-noticeable. Can it be from oil leak that ends up on my clutch plate?
Thanks in advance.

Magnet looks pretty much normal for not knowing how long before the last change. Normal wear I'd say. As for the vibration, it's just a characteristic of the machine. You mentioned oil on your clutch, does it slip? .............:serious:

to be honest, I did not notice any slipping while taking off even when I forget third gear in and take off from zero speed. I will check this again.

The slipping is most notable when you accelerate hard in high gear, like when you're trying to pass a vehicle.

Nothing unusual on the drain plug. Just don't know how long since it was last cleaned off. Fuzz is good - Shiny stuff is bad. I have 98,000 miles on mine and I still get a bit of fuzz.

Dude, thanks for your reply but as my English is only out of an English language school you 'll have to break down your term fuzz.

He's saying it's normal. And your English is better than a lot of folks for whom it's a first language. Kudos!

'λεπτά μόρια' (leptá mória) Hope I got this correct if not my apologies.

You are OK.

Thanks Mark. You see my English is good as you say but what's Kudos?
Language school would never teach these words. Is it a daily word?
