just go into an auto store and look it up in an oil catalogue - ensures your getting the right one. Just buy a big name brand (Castrol, Mobile, Penzoil, Penrite, Valvoline) won't make much difference at all! Prolly wanna get 2x 1L bottles as I think it's 1.6L capacity.

Just had a look in my Max Ellery repair manual. It specifies to use Hypoid gear oil 80W-90 GL5. This will cover all EA to ED differentials.
