Its almost to the point to where its " what oil can you not run in your transmission". Good read.

I guess I got a misconception then as to how the fluid operates in a tranny. It was my understanding that tranny fluid had a "friction additive" in it to make clutches bite better, not slip to buffer the shift?? That was the reason that I originally ran type F ATF years ago. If you put Dextron in a Ford back then, it would burn up the clutches in no time because they would slip at the gear change?? If that's not the case, then there is a ton of stuff out there that could be used instead of the friction additive oils.

The manual transmission oil specified for my Dodge is an oil WITH friction additives to make the synchronizers work. Without those additives it's said that the gears will scrape at the shift.

Hummm, dunno about all this but I do know what the Hydratrans Tractor fluid does cuz I've seen the inside of mine after running it for two years and there was basically NO wear to speak of in those clutches. I guess I'll just keep on doing what works for me, hey!
