Ah, I had the same problem with a PT9000 Benford spicer box. If its a similar design it has a dipstick under a nut, about 22mm down the side of the box, I think on the RHS? The oil must be checked with the engine running at idle. Incidentally Spicer is owned by CAT. When I complained about something I said "you don't get this trouble with a CAT," he said "we're owned by CAT!" :doh: :doh: :doh:

Good luck John :thumbup:
