    You CAN use the type F in that trans. Some profess that it yeilds a firmer shift. I can't say that from experience myself. And frankly, for myself, I wouldn't want harsh shifts if I could avoid it. But I think the consensus is that either type fluid CAN be used.

    When this trans was first used, it's recommended oil was SAE 10W engine oil!

    Miscreant at large.
