Well, tonight I took the advice that has been dispensed re: putting
the factory specified 50w engine oil in my T18 4 speed in a 71 F100.
It immediately and definately makes a difference in the shifting.
Shifting from 1st to 2nd is much smoother.

Thanks to all for this advice.

I drained the 90 wt out of my NP435 and Dana 24 and replaced it with
Mobil Synthetic SAE50 Gear Lube, the same stuff we use in our over the
road Eatons (7 and 9 and 13-speeds) at work. The shop foreman said that
when they switched them over from mineral oil (some were 90 models had
400,000 miles already)there was no problem at all with seal failures,
and fuel mileage went up noticably. This stuff is specified to 250,000
mile changes, and is the only oil that Eaton specifies for their 750,000
mile warranty on their transmissions. I believe that it shows that it
meets the GL-3 specification. (I have no idea about these specs)

This isn't SAE 50 engine oil, but the shop foreman talked me into trying
it.(he's a good friend I've worked with for years) Does anyone think
that it will cause any problems? I drove it out and around a little and
could feel a big difference in shifting smoothness, and a noticable
difference in how hard the engine is pulling. I know that my mileage
will improve since I run short trips and the oil stays cold most of the
time. But, I guess I'd like to know, is this stuff going to do all
right in the long run?

A/C.

It's so your engine doesn't continue to run after turning off the key.
