I've just rebuilt my antique transmission using one of your kits, and I would like to know what type of transmission fluid I can use?


We suggest you check with the vehicle manufacturer or owners manual for the correct fluid type, however most people use Dexron III / Mercon fluid without any problems. If you are working on a Ford, Mercury, or Lincoln and the transmission has the original bronze type friction plates, then Type F should be used.
