You can use Mobil 1 gear oil. I just changed mine out from regular Dino oil and
the thing shifts perfect! It use to be really notchy.

Look under oil in  the yellow pages, I think it's under industrial or
lubricating. You'll find a distributor for the oil, ask what gas stations they
sell it to so you can buy two or three quarts. The stuff is $10 a quart, my
tranny took 2 quarts, my rear end took 2 quarts.
