what lsd oil for wagons

Recommended Posts

So my 72 510 wagon came with a datsun comp lsd . I just got it running and need to put oil in.  I'm in nor-cal so it doesn't get to cold what the best weight oil for the wagon.  I did see that you shouldn't use GL5 in the wagon diff or synthetic oil with the lsd .

I would contact several Nissan dealers and ask them to check. Better yet a Subaru dealer as they had the R-160 LSDs as standard equipment and made by the same maker Fuji Heavy Industries.


Not sure about non GL5 in a differential.  It needs the added anti scuff properties afforded by GL5 so check up on this.
