1928 Buick Master transmission oil

Recommended Posts

I m going to change the transmission oil.

Does anyone know how much oil I need on transmission and rear axle?

What type of oil do you use?

In my 1929 Master I run 600W from MACs in the transmission and the differential. I think the transmission is 2-3 quarts and the differential close a gallon. I'm not really sure on the refill capacity. The heavy 600W is really the only lube I have used that allows easy shifting. It also slows down on leaks some.

Whatever gear oil you buy if it is in a squeezable container stand it up in very hot water for 15 minutes before trying to squeeze or pour it in.

Transmission around 1.75 quarts, differential 2.3 quarts (for the 128"). The shorter ones need more for the differential. Fill it up to the lower level of the filler plug.

Take a heavy one, I take at least W250, follow tinindians hint or calculate a half a day to pour the oil in;)
