    I decided to use this past weekend to change the motor oil, gear oil, change the plugs, lube the chassis and other preventative maintenance but I have some questions on the greasing of the chassis. I did a search and couldn't find anything usefull and my manual indicates nothing either. Can someone point me in the direction of lubing the chassis etc.? Does a standard grease gun work? Please provide pictures if possible.
    Thanks In Advance,
    Nathan

    well, his profile says 3.2 Mondial.

    Grease the door hinges. That's all.

    No "chassis" grease as such.

    Read the service schedule in the owners booklet... it's all pointed out.

    Greasing of suspension joints through those little grease nipples went out of fashion around the 60's. Shame??

    Got loads on my Healey and at least you know there is something in there. Personally I'd like to be able to grease the top and bottom swivel joints on the 308's front suspension, but I guess it'll have to wait for a re-build some time. Maybe it is not even necessary?

    Good,
    I figured as much when I didnt see anything as far as grease points. I guess I am just used to old corvettes and the like.
    Thanks,
    Nathan
