Re: unhappy with 80w-90 gear oil

Sta-Lube SL24239 API/GL4 85w90 is what i used
tranny/diff had just over 250,000 miles on it
it was probably just a Coincidence
but still "Not sure if I will try that again"

Re: unhappy with 80w-90 gear oil

I tried gl4 once, 6 months later the front differential gears were broken. I have no idea whether or not gl4 had anything to do with it. Not sure if I will try that again

I have a another tranny/differential that has 435,000 miles on it using gl5 and it still shifted just fine.

Re: Need Electrical Help with Short at Alternator

it turns out the plugs are different between internal and external
though my internal plug seemed to fit on the ext alt enough that i did not notice anything fishy
the three internal alt. blades are offset and the external alt. three blades are symmetrical.

Re: Need Electrical Help with Short at Alternator

Never mind just found out I have a external regulator alternator and my car requires internal. You would think they would have a different plug so they cannot be installed in wrong car

Re: Trans leak after seal repairs.

maybe you should have replaced the input shaft seal on tranny while you had it apart. That being said it rarely leaks even when it is somewhat hardened. if it does leak, oil will come from top of differential housing. The 4wd shaft seal and the rear driveline seal are both possibilites. then the fro...

Re: Weird CV axle problem

There is one company that made a bunch of badly fitting axles. I had one. Luckily I had a broken differential and cut the spider gear out and smeared it with valve lapping compound then hammered it on and off the shaft until it shaved off enough material to allow shaft to slide in easily. I mailed t...
