Thread: Rotella HD for gear oil?

  1. #1

    Default Rotella HD for gear oil?

    Has anyone run this for diffs, tranny, gear box, etc? Seems to be GL-4 and 85w. My series 3 is new to me and I want to treat her well but this is the closest thing I can find out here in Las Vegas.

    Certain oils/fluids can have a negative effect on any yellow metal (ie: synchros) in the gearbox. GL-4 seems to be the consensus lately.

    It would not hurt to just e-mail Shell directly and voice your concern. They would know.

    I would also like to hear anyone weigh in on if there is the same concern for the differential or swivel housings as well.

    Try Peavey Mart (stupid name) as they sell GL-4 oil for older tractors;
    Harvest King GL-4
