No, not the actual transmission oil, the friction modifier, Lubrizoil.

if the penrite gear oil is synthetic there is no need to add lubrizol,
i would use either the penrite syn 80 gear oil or castrol tranzmax z, both are synthetic so no need for lubrizol..
lubrizol is only ment to be added to mineral atf like dexron...

the lubrizol is ment to stop the sincro rings from sticking/balking on gear changes.


Thanks for the explanation T-MAN. How much of the lubrizoil per fill should go in if using dextron?


usually about 150ml... i wouldnt use the dexron personally...
if you havnt brought the oil yet, imo go for the synthetic transmax z or synthetic gear oil its much much beter than using a mineral fluid with the additive...

The grinding a gone in 4th but still in fifth .
I'll see how it goes , but I have a feeling it don't like the penrite , the penrite oil I had was sitting in the shed for a few months maybe 6 months lol

I brought it ages ago but finally got around to it now .
Must be out of date ?

I'm gonna drop it out and put in castrol
