The oil pump will be rotated, as all shafts will be rotated, top gear is recommended

By the time you have found an appropriate stick surely you could have disconnected the propshaft at the diff end.

So why does undoing the propshaft from the diff flange entail loosing any oil?
Unless Morgans are different to every other car I have owned is a sealed item with oil seals on at the input and outputs.

Tail shaft is the back of the gearbox. Prop acts as an oil seal. Or at least fits in an oil seal to prevent loss of oil.

Well I am amazed. I have had to take the prop shaft off my Discovery to replace the uj bearings, and the drive flange on the rear of the gearbox, same as Morgan, was held by a large central nut and had it's own oil seal. This nut is a swine to remove as I had to, later, replace this said oil seal.
