Manual gearbox oil can be found in 70 up to 90 weight, check your local shop.

I see gear oil at Wal-Mart still with 70 or 80 weight or more sometimes. I haven't really looked recently though. Harley Davidson Transmission or gear oil works well too as it is 70 or 80 weight as well. Sometimes you look for the oil they use in the rear differential drive for a automobile or truck.

The last time I bought 70wt I bought some mail-order from Custom Chrome. 60 wt is usually available from Harley shops. I think the old Knuckleheads used 70 wt.

Please be aware that 70wt gear oil does not have the same viscosity as 70wt crankcase oil. Check your local airport for SAE60 or 70 non-detergent crankcase oils.

Hi Gents.

Video of some of my other motors running.
Only the rotary will qualify as vintage I guess.

Nice engines. Dang, that must've been some heavy junk on that table, I was waiting for it to blow into your neighbor's yard. Makes my RR1 look like a tiny toy.
