    Re: Oil type for S80 LSD gearbox

    When i did my gearbox a few months back a gearbox specialist told me of a concontion they have been running for a few years in the hondas they worked on, it was a pretty complicated mixture of diesil engine oil and some other fluids. Sounded risky but they swore by it. I stuck with Honda MTF and suggest you do to, but there are possibly some (risky) alternatives out there.

    Have only heard good things about MTF and when I changed my fluid back in March I used it. No problems
