    Default Velvet Drive Transmission Oil

    I have a 1969 Chrysler 318 engine with a velvet drive model AS1-71C. The dipstick says to use Type A oil. Can someone recommend what brand and type of oil to use? Also, I'm also trying to determine the oil capacity of the transmission. Thanks.

    The inline velvet drive gears work just fine with DEXTRON III. The BW service manual calls out Type C-3 oil.....and the Bulletin I have says even Type F is acceptable.....the big concern is not to intermix two unknown oil types.

    The capacity is not fixed but will vary with the application and installation. Two quarts should be adequate for a 71 unless the cooler lines have been lengthened...
