    Default Oil type question

    Hello,

    I have a Velvet drive 72c and need to find an AFT oil SAE 30 weight which meet C3-oil specification.

    Even SAE-API CD type is preferable (MIL-L-21048)

    My question is: does this oil type still exist? If so, which brand do you suggest ?

    Thanks in advance for your reply.

    Best regards,

    Marc Anne

    You are better off with good old DEXRON ATF. If you want the stuff specified in the older service literature, go find a farm equipment shop and they will get you what you need. Also likely to be found at a commercial truck service facility or a good hydraulic service shop.

    I have a 1997 Borg Warner tranny (454XLi engines). The manual specifies Dexron II, but can I use Dexron III or IV without issue? Backward compatible, right?

    Yep, you will be fine. Every time GM improves Dexron, they add another number.
