Ah going to lovely places as far as I can tell! Well, if you’re passing by Milan let me know, and if you’d like to discover Liguria do not hesitate to write me for advice.
Regarding the oil, just hold on a second for now as I have just heard back from Omega itself and I would like to see what they can arrange. Especially since I am thinking about buying 5 litres and changing the oil in the gearbox of my classic Alfa Romeo as well since the gearbox isn’t that healthy anymore. I would need to check whether there are any brass or bronze parts or bearings in it but I’ll check with my mechanic. Just wanted to quote a part of the reply of Omega here fore future references:
" Yes our Omega 690 Super EP Gear Oil works very well in differentials. We have received feedback from motorsport teams that the product reduces the temperature of differentials by around 25°C. The product also works very well in manual transmissions too providing faster and smoother gear changes. I can confirm the product doesn’t cause any problems with drag. We have found it actually reduces energy costs of gearboxes by up to 30% whilst also reducing noise, temperature and vibration of gearboxes. The oil can last up to 20 years before needing to be replaced. It is a API GL 6 oil and so it far exceeds the spec of a GL 5 gear oil, extending the service life of the vehicle’s gearbox and the oil itself.
Unfortunately we do not have an Omega distributor in Italy but we can supply you direct from the UK.
We can supply Omega 690 Super EP Gear Oil 80W90 in 1 Ltr bottles @ £38.36 GBP each, 5 Ltr and 20 Ltr sizes also available"
I’ll see how much they quote me!
