EP 90 US Equivalent??

I can't seem to find EP90 or Hypoid 90 for my 67 Series 2a. Is there a US equivalent? Thanks

Except you want to use a GL-4 spec not a GL-5 spec. GL-5 eats the yellow metal in the transmission.

Any old gear oil for the diffs and transfer case. A GL4 oil for the gear box or an engine oil would do. The problem with gear oil is not white metal corrosion but damage to synchros.

It's like $12 a gallon for GL-1 Gear oil at NAPA. Last I checked GL-4 was far less corrosive than GL-5 but still had corrosive properties.
