    Default 405 SRDT Manual Gearbox oil

    Can anyone let me know if the following oil would be ok for a manual 405 SRDT...I'm pretty sure it's what was recommended in the Mi16 gearbox, which should use the same oil:
    Penrite transaxle 75
    Semi synthetic
    SAE 75W-90
    API GL-5

    Haynes says: Gear oil, viscosity 75W/85W, to API GL-5

    I'm open to suggestions for any possible better alternatives.
    Thanks,
    Simon

    Popular consensus is, you'd be better chasing an oil with the factory-recommended specs (IIRC, 75W80 not 75W/85)and adding a tube of Nulon G70.

    Onshore Oils in Brisbane, will have something to suit.

    Ok...thanks,
    my typo on the Haynes info, I should have said 75W/80W.
    Cheers
