    I just ordered Redline MT-90 for my 57 Commander 3spd with overdrive per a previous thread. I plan on using it in my 63 Hawk with the 4spd also.

      GL-5 in the rear it is then. Now that I have a stock number on the GL-1 a host of headaches is cured at least.

        A question about putting new oil in the fairly jellied transmission. I got out 80%-90% of the old jelly, should I plan on draining this after a short period of use and refilling or will it not make that much difference leaving in the traces of old oil until a scheduled change?

          Leo, I read in a previous thread where it was noted to drive the vehicle to get the trans nice and warm, then let it drain overnight .

            That's what I would have done. At this point it wouldn't hurt to do that after a couple good long drives.

              Sounds good. I know I'll feel better if I do it considering what I slopped out.

                At least Studebakers have separate transmissions and differentials. In the Corvair world, the manual transmissions share fluid with the differential. GL-4 is our only choice. Carquest carries GL-4 in 90w. My 50 Commander uses ATF, no, not a manual transmission.
