Will this stuff work in my trans and diff?


Recommended Posts

I use Mobil Lubriseal 2000. It is a semi-fluid extreme presure greese that is used for lubercation on center piviot irrigation systems. I have had no problem with using it. I use it in all six of my older vehicles. It comes in a 5 gal can.

Does anybody know off the top of their head how much (i.e. how many quarts) I'll need to purchase for the transmission? How about the differential?

I should use 90W for both applications, correct?

Thanks for all the info!

I found about Meropa on the internet. Car oil specialists usually don't know abput this oil as it is a industrial oil. I foud that Prem is selling it in Sweden so I called them. They said that they sold it only in big quantities and recomended me to try a small company (selling oil to race cars and motorcycles) that may have it smaller bottles. Now I can get it in 20 liter cans. It is not expensive, only about $2.5 a liter.

Try to call Chevron in the USA.

No, just the GL-5 rated stuff, which will apparently attack some of the "yellow metals" components of an antique trans or diff. It seems that GL-5 is perfect for modern cars, which is why it seems to be the only thing stocked at the auto part stores.

Yes they've both been rebuilt with new bearings, bushings, etc. I take it the "yellow metal" is the bearing material? The diff has new gears (new mfg. high speed gears) and the trans just has new bushings. So you think I'm ok?

thanks,

Mike
