Bob said: (quoted from post at 00:58:11 08/22/13) Royse... IS there such a thing as UTF that is NOT "yellow metal safe"?

IMHO, the "yellow metal safe" issue applies to GEAR OIL, usually GL-5.

IMHO the concern over EP corrosivness in an N series is way over blown. There are no synchronizers which are the most vulnerable type of component and what little yellow metal is there (PTO cam blocks) doesn't get anywhere close to the surface pressures and temperatures that activate the EP additives. In any event with a few exceptions most modern GL-5 formulations are buffered and not particulalrly corrosive. Here is a list of ASTM D130 copper strip corrosion test results for some common gear lubes. Test results range from 1A (non-corrosive) to 4C (highly corrosive). Most of these lubes are 1B which is just a light stain - e.g. yellow metal safe in most synchronized transmissions and certainly OK in an N-series
