    Double check the specs on the synthetic. I use royal purpleā€™s max gear and it specifically states it is safe for all ferrous metals.
    All gear lubes are safe for ferrous, ie iron, metaLs. It's non-ferrous, brass and bronze, that may be damaged by sulfur bearing EP additives.

      Sorry - did not put enough info down - it is safe for non-ferrous metals as well.

        Been using redline mt90 synthetic in the 64 Avanti. Shifts great with no issues yet.

          I've been using the Amsoil 75W-90 Manual Transmission gear oil for years in Studebaker transmissions with great results. I've also used SAE 50 synthetic gear lube meant for large truck transmissions with great results. The GL1 lube works, but I believe that taking advantage of modern lubricants makes good sense in terms of improved lubrication, and part life and ultimately reduced cost. Most modern transmissions and differentials call for synthetic lubes for good reason. Bud

            If you have a True Value near you, they can order the GL1 for you. About $22 for a gallon.
