Try going to a bulk fuel/oil distributor Carl. They are more likely to know what you could use. I know that She'll and Exxon/Esso/Mobil have tech departments to answer questions like that. You could also try a dealer that sells and services your product or one like it. They must have something to use for that purpose.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

What about oil for heavy-truck hubs (semi's and dump trucks). Soem are rated for 90 weight and some for 50 weight. Then heavy-truck transmissions, such as Eaton-Fullers use 50 weight... and when I started looking at approved lubes in South Africa, I found that Shell Oil has distributors in South Africa(?)
