Fluid for automatic '72 trans


Recommended Posts

Did the 1200's switch from borg warner to jatco automatics like the US 510's, or were they jatco the for the whole US lineup?


What fluid should I use? Haynes calls for Castrol TQF.


I'll be putting a tranny cooler on, fresh fluid and filter, and hoping for this transmission to last a little while.

Datsun 1200 only came with JATCO -- nothing but the best for Mini Musclecar.


From the owner's manual: Automatic T/M Fluid: Type DEXRON (3N71B A/T)


Any DEXRON compatible will work, including:




The bottle should say something like "Suitable for use in applications calling for DEXRON"
