    For my old 70's I used to have before going to XLi's, I used to use 85w-140 gear oil and found that was perfect, for an XL or XLi gearbox you need a thicker oil.
    AS REQUESTED....The all new and VERY improved "super cool" Pin_Head with super hip shades.....

      I have used 85-140 in the past and have recently starting to put in Mobil 1 300w gear oil. Just make sure it is gear oil and not motor oil they have different properties. Anything above the 85-140 mark should be fine as long as it is not so thick you have to wait an hour to pour it (so 300w and below) should be just fine and a well known brand.

        I use 85w-140 but when its gone i will be switching to a heavier oil. The thinner oil has a tendency to leak when it comes to back end gearboxes

          Forgot to mention that...thanks...that is the reason I switched to the 300w gear oil. Since we are on the topic of gear boxes and oil and a seal is sometimes needed to be replaced in the process, what does everyone use? I use the permatex ultra black for the gasket on the flanges.

            Currently im using the same stuff. I like it cause the tubes i buy have a handly little pump on it so im not stuck squeezing a tube. I wont use gaskets for anything more than a shim (if I dont have any shims)

                  That's the stuff I use. Order up a pail pump-5XA53 for the 5 gallon bucket makes things so much easier too.

                    The last FM used 85 w-140 in all gear boxes front and back.
                    The fronts worked for a while but would leak and the oil turned black fast.
                    The rears were always hot, leaked, and the oil turned black faster than the fronts.
                    You see a pattern here? Now I use the mobile 600wt from Grainger.
                    No leaks, Cooler and quieter running motors.
                    I'll see you in the streets.

                        Just checked what I bought it was mobilgear 600 xp680 at $138.15 for 5 gal. Looks like you still got a better deal unless you had to pay shipping.

                          Sir, you don't have to shout...we are right here. Just playing :P

                          Grainger rarely has the best price but 9 outta 10 times they have what you need in stock or it will be in 3 days tops. They will ship anything to your local branch for you to try it before you buy it and I've never heard em say "I can't help you with that".

                          PS I buy the mobil 600 from Grainger.
                          When you know what to do, everything is easy.

                            Well I just tried 85w-140 mixed 50/50 with lucas stabilizer in a back end gearbox. leaked at the input seal once the motor warmed up. Would the mobil 600 stop this or am i screwed and have to replace the input shaft along with the seal?

                              This is the motor input seal? Thicker oil could help but, I would replace that oil seal. If it leaked once it will leak again. You can get those seals from Stahl's Seventies I just ordered some of the distributor and carpet output shaft seals. They were under $5 a piece. Here is the part number 705-502-026 for the motor input shaft oil seal, or if you have a local bearing shop they can size it up and order it for you also. You can get a lot of parts from Stahl's for the National gear boxes I have found.
