  • Gearbox oil

    I know this has been asked a few times. Last season I was asked to change the oil in all of the gear boxes. I was given 90 wt. gear box oil. I know what is recommended that J156 or whatever is called.

    Anyway the thinking was gearbox oil is gearbox oil and this is what we use in our heavy equipment and it works fine. I tried it and am not happy with the results. I have many seals that have failed and other issues.

    So I am going to change the oil again what do you all use. I have seem some different views from mixing 90 wt with lighter oil to after market lubricants. Etc.

    What do you all do or use? Thanks in advance for the help.

    We use 'Hypoid Gear Oil EP80' from Comma Product Code #HP80. It`s never caused us a problem.

                      [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img] Yea... haven't used that one in a while...

                      "Gearbox leaking? Fear not... There's still oil in it. Worry when it stops leaking."

                      Actually, our old mechanic put USED gear oil from tractors he worked on at a repair shop in the area... never had a problem with it, seals never leaked, gears never failed, and I never found any metal in the drained oil. Sounds crazy, but in 15 years, I've never had to so much as TOUCH a gearbox due to a mechanical failure or problem. I did flush them out a while back and started using a full-synthetic 80W90 diesel transmission/differential oil in them. Yet again, no problems.

                      I swear by Lucas Oil Treatment oil stabilizer... the stuff really works, and works well. I use it in the machines, my vehicles, small engines... anything that uses engine or gear oil.

                        If any of you buy Vantage products, order part #V280. Never had a problem with it, and its fruity , too.

                          Guys, these motors have bronze parts in them. You need to be selective with your gear oil. The sulfer in 80/90 will deteriorate the bronze parts over time.

                          Pure mineral gear oil is what you should be using on the westys. 600 wgt.

                          I have a local jobber make it for me. I pay $67 for five gallons and you will get your 5 year service life just like the Sohovis J156 that Standard made.
