I have always tried to use 30 wt non-detergent in my Spridget or Datsun
trannys. The foaming of the non-detergent oil (detergent is to STOP foaming)
is good for a non-pressure oiling system like a tranny.

non-detergent 30 or 40 weight, the cheap $1 a quart Wal Mart stuff. I never
had one of Eric's gearboxes fail or even wear, and Lord knows I tried!
