I'm running Redline MTL 75W80 GL-4 gear oil in my 1960 Land Rover's 
gearbox. MUCH better shifting when I start out in Freezing weather and 
all the time.  This oil does not harm brass.  I intend to use it in he 
TR3 next oil change.

The limited slip diff in the TR3 and the air locker diff in the Land 
Rover both use Redline 75W90 GL-5 gear oil.

I was told that this oil would help the diffs run cooler.  I've never 
personally never tried to measure the temperatures.  But the stuff seems 
to work just fine.

I'm happy with redline products.  I know my Land Rover's gear box is a 
LOT happier during the winter.
