Use the Stovebolt search and enter “Transmission oil” you will get lots of fine reading.

Have fun learning to shift that transmission without creating a few pounds of gear tooth debris! It's definitely an acquired skill!

I hear you Jerry. I'm '73 so I've driven a few, but it's sure been a while. I've looked at all the gears in there and they all look perfect, so any debris will be all my fault, lol. I've got some Valvoline 80w-90 that specifically says it's for "non-synchronized transmissions". Question do I just put it in before I put the cover back on or do I have to put it in through what appears the fill plug at the back of the trans?

I just put it in from the top and buttoned her up and she shifts just fine, at least enough to go around the block. Thank you to every one who helped get me through this. I'm sure I'm going to need a lot more advice as the build progresses. This is the place to get it!

Definitely fill the tranny before you put the cover on. Lots less mess that way. Pull the fill plug on the side and watch for the oil to dribble out, then stop filling.

Hi Kevin,

That's what I did. Now I can drive it around and start on all the other things it needs.

Thanks again,
Joe
