 Don't use GL5 in the tranny.  It is an extreeme pressure lubricant
designed for hypoid gearing.  Too good for the syncros to grab
quickly.  It won't hurt your tranny, but you won't be happy
with the slow shifting.  GL5 is OK in the rear end, but use GL4 in
the tranny.

I recently bought Castor Synthetic GL5 for my 200 from Jim Blau, and was
that it meets or succeeds all GL4 specs.  I have also been told this from
another source.  I would like to confirm this before I change all tranny and
diff  fluids soon.  Any one know for sure?  I was also told that GL5 is a
newer fluid that may not have been in use at the time of our cars

Thanks for your considerations and thoughts.
