    Big time thanks to 45ACP for a nice vibration free driveline! Got a killer shop too[​IMG] And what kind of fluid does a NP208 take - Dexron/Mercon or FA?

    My question is why Transmission fluid? I've alway's wondered that.

    Round Rock, Texas I haven't failed, I've found 10,000 ways that don't work. <a target="_blank" href=http://www.rocko.rockcrawler.com>www.rocko.rockcrawler.com</a>

    It was an attempt to get better gas mileage using a lower viscosity fluid, plus the case is aluminium and gear lube has chemicals in it that wreaks havoc on brass, bronze and aluminium.

    Cool deal! I figured that after having three different drivelines in and out of it, and dumping in whatever ATF was at hand, it's probably time for an oil change in there. And I even have a case of Dexron in the garage!!
