i'd say a correlation of this level of this large a sample can safely be assumed to be causation dude. that's his evidence. put the fluid in, gearbox works better. do it with a zillion other gearboxes, and they all work better too. what's the common variable? THE FLUID.

for someone who rants on about evidence, you sure know nothing of testing methodology.


scotty - still wondering about that "alternative/more common ingredients" possibility...

wellll....i find it almost impossible to believe that GM does not sell the synchromesh at their dealers there---there HAS to be some sort of it available....and there MUST be a castrol non synthetic gl-5 gearlube available...and the heavyweight shockproof???
ebay or amazon

and ALL that IS available on amazon...dunno about the shipping, but....

i can find the stuff online but they want a FORTUNE for post. it works out to be $70/quart.

heavy shockproof i can get decently priced, GM synchromesh i can get for $70/quart, castrol i can get for $70/quart, pennzoil i cannot at all.

you can't draw any evidence on someone saying "oh it works better" under what conditions, under what load, compared to what, any metallurgical analysis of the outgoing fluid vs the v3? no, there's none of that. the burden of proof is not on me, it's on scotty. he's asking you to literally blindly believe that his way is better, with no factual data to back it up.

it's cool, put whatever you want in your car.

nobody is asking anyone to blindly believe anything.

You want data, you collect it yourself.

If not, move on.

This is hardly a revelation. data costs money. advice is free, and you can get a full refund if you're dissatisfied.

One day my tractor broke down and we could not get the **** going and I was still getting paid! Sooo Honest days work for a honest days wage and all that **** I was given a manpack and had to walk the rows instead! Bored as all f*** I booted this old log that was laying across the track...Normaly this would not be a problem! But unbeknown to me under this log was one pissed off costal taipan (only the third most venemous snake in the world. their bites are 100% fatal and if you get nailed by one of those you have about 30 minutes to get help or you're done for, with death occurring within about 90 minutes.) who was intent on sinking its fangs into me! I've been told and read that they (taipans) are like most Aussie snakes not very aggresive unless corners etc etc I can tell you right now I'd like to find these so called experts and tell them to go and get f**ked!

I had about 60 meters to go to the end of the row and at the end was the Toyota land cruise....I (most likely squeeled like a little girl) grabbed my poison man pack and threw it at the snake and f***ing ran at a rate that would have probably broken land speed records! I **** you not! And all the time this pissed off snake is keeping up with me down the row! I jump into the troopie, Windows up, doors locked! looking outside and this farken snake is actually having a go at the 4wd!
and to give you an idea of the taipans lethality:

Was paralyzed for a few weeks and said he still can't feel certain parts of his body, the back of one of his hands, up his forearm, his shoulder. Nasty stuff and that was only one little bite. That bite was about 20 years ago.

Have seen many snakes on patrols hanging out of trees.

the australian huntsman spider:

I was told about the ability to put them in your mouth, go up to someone and go to talk to them, allowing the spider to run out across your face. Did it nearly a dozen times before one got annoyed and bit me. It lost it's appeal after that.

All the young reo's look at the older blokes, and ask WTF is going on? With ear plugs in, no-one can hear me scream, which is an absolute Godsend.
My 2IC (my best mate, and later my best man) takes one look at me, says in a deadpan tone that I've walked into a spider's web, and that I'll be right in a couple of minutes. He then tells everyone to take out their plugs, light up a smoke and have a giggle listening to me scream. Bastards...

You guessed it, lo and behold, a bird eating spider the size of a dinner plate materialises in front of our intrepid hero.

Without even thinking, he pulls the rifle into the shoulder, takes a quick battle sight picture over the iron sights, and lets go the entire 30 round mag *BRAAAAAAAAAAAAP - TING!* whilst screaming like a little girl.
however the spiders have nothing on the ANTS. bullants (we call them inchies because they're an inch long) have both a stinger on one end and nippers on the other and can bite through kevlar.

My good mate cfn poindexter starts swearing like a freakin banshee. Off comes his webbing and his slr is taken to the ground all the time he is dancing like joe cocker. The Sgt in charge yells at poiny to take back his position otherwise there will be hell to pay. Poiny yells back "they are all over me sarge and I ain't farkin resuming my spot'.
Next thing his shirt goes off, drops his strides and reg grundies and is doing his best to wipe away this army of huge red ants on him. We are busily pissing ourselves with laughter as poiny does his best penguin impersonation and tries to outrun them with his strides around his ankles. The poor bastard dived on a nest of red ants with his knees and then they engulfed him. Eventually we all got up and helped him out, lucky enough he wasn't allergic to them and suffered no permanent damage, but by christ it was funny to listen to and watch.
stories taken from the local army forum.

and my own personal story:

hiking about 12 clicks down in "deranged gunmen" land out in the middle of nowhere, got a mate in front of me with a decent size pack and a decent size lad (probs 200lbs at age 16) but wasn't the sharpest tool in the shed.

cue us absolutely f**ked after hiking all day carrying some other deadbeats stuff who didn't listen to the instructions, we're just cruising along on some downhill singletrack when i hear one small hiss, one big one and then a big SNAP noise.

old mate had stomped past a nice chilled out snake taking a snooze in the middle of the track to get some sunlight and almost stomped on the poor bastard. 200lbs of him + 50lbs of gear woke the thing up with an AWFUL fright and i see it actually take a snap at his heels/lower leg, turn uphill and then come straight at me. i of course nearly leap out of my skin and recoil backwards/scrambling for all my life is worth only to have the rest of the group all marching in single file/following me, plow into me and not only prevent my recoil back but actually shove me forwards

cue all manner of abuse/swearing/etc whilst i'm still ****ting myself scrambling back up the hill/shoving them out of the way whilst this snake still comes after me, at this point i've fallen backwards into someone and then hit the deck, sitting on my ass looking forwards and it's essentially between my ankles aimed straight @ my c0ck and SERIOUSLY pissed off. obviously at this point i assume i'm either going to get nailed in the face or lose my manhood. it then has another hiss at me just to make me really **** myself and then just takes a 90 degree right and bails down the hill.

first dude had no idea ANY of this had even happened and just kept stomping on none the wiser

That guy is either nuttier than squirrel poo, has nuts the size of cantalopes or has a brain capacity equivalent to that rabbit he caught. Should I feel bad that I was waiting for him to get bit?

Appreciate your help but already know where to go for basic maintenance questions, was just curious what people who ran the trans fluid blend if there was certain rear dif fluid that paired well with the cocktail

i think at least one of my local shops has axle limited slip now (in fact i'm confident of it). this makes me very happy!

now i can get all the ingredients, just have to run the GM fluid instead of the pennzoil. bah. oh well better than nothing.

scotty - there's two of these fluids. ac delco makes them. there is:

http://www.acdelco.com/parts/vehicle...mission-fluid/

and:

http://www.acdelco.com/parts/vehicle...mission-fluid/

when i search on ebay with the GM part number, i get results for both the 10-4006 88900333 and the 10-4014 88900399 AC delco part numbers. obviously they're not the same stuff (i've linked both above).

which do i get?

just make sure you use the v3 cocktail---heavyweight shockproof and the v3 QUANTITIES as they are different than the original
