5-speed oil question

Post by printner »

I had drained my 5-speed a few months back to change out the reverse switch. (Wasn't sure if a drain was necessary but didn't want to chance it).

Filling it yesterday, I could only get about 60 oz of fluid in before it was full. Is it possible that some fluid was still in it, or is the capacity in the manuals wrong?

Thanks.

I don’t think you can get all the oil out on a oil change, so makes sense.

I am waiting on my rebuilt 5 speed from the shop. What oil should I put in it?

Swepco 201. Do a quick search and it's discussed a lot. The stick shift no longer gets hot, clearly reduced friction over other oil used.
