guess it depends on the area,

in my rural area, the mineral oil is on the shelf at NAPA, TSC, many others.

good stuff

pump-able, thick enough for gears

I personally don't care for 134, except for the hydraulic chamber only, hard January.

Springtime, it comes out.
I know they say it is ok, but I just can't make myself put that thin stuff in a tranny or rear.

JMHO, but if I can hear gears and bearings, they are telling me they are not happy.

the thin stuff in any of my, any color, pre-1950 tractors, and they tell me loudly, they don't like it.

(used UTF as a flushing fill in the rear of a AC WC for a short test after, nice and quiet)

Working on the big ol gears in tractors, don't seem much different,

than a toploader, or detroit locker 9".

ain't putting 134 in those.........

exception to above is that I did use 134 equivalent in

my 5000 because of the brakes. all is fine, but it is a 1975...

Hello NoNewParts , Glad you posted and glad to see someone else with common sense . Just like the old New Process 205 gear drive transfer case since the 70's it ran on 80w90 gear oil late 80's early 90's they ran it on ATF to cut down the drag and improve gas mileage like that is going to help on a 1 Ton 4x4 truck it did not hurt the case but it was not happy either . I know because I changed my trucks back to 80w90 and there all up to close to 300,000 miles and the cases have never been apart . But if you take a New Process 241 in the newer 1 tons that does run on ATF and try to run it on 80w90 gear oil you had better expect to rebuild it soon because it BURN out all of the bearings because it was designed for thinner oil and can not run thicker oil . Tractors are no different , run what it is designed to have in it and you will have less problems . Thanks Tony
