What I really like is 1/2 85-90 and the other 1/2 redline shock oil. Seems to quiet it down some.

I'd use whatever weight your differential called for before. The detroit doesn't have any clutches so you don't need a special gear oil or a friction modifier.

I've heard that mixing organic and synthetic was a bad idea, some thing about the syn breaking down the organic lube properties. Never tried it so don't know for sure.

It's a Detroit, it will work without oil

Just run whatever you ran before...Regular or Synthetic it doesn't matter. I've heard that mixing regular and synthetic is bad also.

Cool, update us. I use Redline for gear oil and like it.
