Brad, when we ran the lenco drive, we used the amsoil in it.

Go figure...Lenco specifically told me "don't run synthetic in the lenco..the clutches don't like it..just put the cheapest $hit 30wt you can find in it"...
Everybody knows how hot a lencodrive runs so synth. is mandatory.

Look at motorcycles or other high tech gearboxes and nobody is running cheap oil in them.
Redline tech. has never steered me wrong on any lubricant issue oem or racing.

That's all I've run in any Lenco. Never had a problem.

ATF is not a problem with the clutches it a little harder on the sprags may be due to it being a lighter oil.
