I'd say a lot of it depends on your climate. I put GL1 in my 202 and in the winter I can hardly get the thing into gear where normally you just aim it and push very lightly (it's pretty worn). In summer no problem. If you are in a climate where it doesn't get too cold the GL1 would be perfect.
I don't plan on using the 202 much in the winter because I have a TO35 which I intend to use for moving snow with a back blade. I will be trying out some 10W30 in it. Also, since I got the 35, I took the freshly rebuilt hydraulic and 3pt. "guts" out of the 202 to put in the 35 so it no longer has to turn the hyd. pump along with all the other gears in GL1 syrup.
I hope to find some low/no detergent 10W30 but if I don't I will put in regular 10W30. As already stated, I think one of the biggest things is to keep the water out and replace the fluid regularly, especially if you think it has water in it. I have replaced the shifter boots on the 202 and will order a set for the 35 when it goes back together. I also keep the 202 tarped when it sits outside. Just pulled the lift cover this past weekend to remove the hyd. pump and all the GL1 still looked pretty good. There was a buildup of sludge and little metal filings in the corners of the housing but considering I was the first one to replace the fluid in probably decades, I would think that is normal.......that and the old hyd. pump had frozen and broken apart long before I owned it.
