Holmes 440 Wrecker Info Needed

Looking to find out the correct level for Gear Oil in the Winch (Re-fill plug is on top of it).

Also would the regular 80W-90 GL-5 be the correct weight and type for it?

Thanks

I have 2 8ooo lb Ramsey winches on my 76 Century 401 model wrecker. The fill plug is about 1/3 of the way up from the bottom , and it states to use 140 weight gear oil on the cover. Could the cover been removed at one time and been put on upside down? The ones on my truck are hydraulic winches and not chain driven.

I've got an old '69 Model Holmes. The plug is on the top of the cast iron housing. The one I have does not have a cover with a plug in it. I looked for a spill-over plug, but did not see one anywhere.

If Spanky doesn't check in soon, maybe send him a PM. He knows those things inside and out.
