Gareth, Just make sure you vent the whole system before you start that will add more oil to your gear box

peter. when you say vent do you mean prime the pipes and stuff make sure the fuel pipes are full.

Yes, prime the system so that all the tubes are filled going to the gearbox. Then, during running, a small amount is fed into the front and rear areas with JetA.
