And that is the reason for the magnet on the drain plug -- to make sure that
the metallic particles are held there and not recirculated through the OD.

Mark -

When I was younger and less intelligent, I ran 20/50 in my BJ8 gearbox.

I switched after I noticed that brass and steel was being kept in
suspension in the gearbox and switched first to no detergent 30wt then
later to Redline MT90.  I did so because I was mostly worried about
wearing out the bores in the OD pump.

I definitely noticed an improvement in shifting, and also the fluid
stays cleaner because it lets the wear metals drop to the bottom,
where they should be.
