I always use recommended oil type if available, I think the company that made the car know what is (was) best. Maybe I am wrong Smiley

This is on the wall in my garage

Svein, the oil recommended in the Ford Service Literature is SAE 90 Hypoid. SAE 80 is a little thinner, but better to use Hypoid 80 than standard SAE 90 gerabox oil. Of course, if you can get Hypoid 90, that's the one to use.

Yes, but whether or not it does the job is a different issue. I wouldn't.

Svein--- you need to forget about the axle oil thing and sort out your garage wall Smiley

For the sierra box ford supplied a semi synthectic oil which is a lighter oil than the 80 grade, more like an auto box fluid.
cant remember the grade but if you get stuck I ll check my old notes when I went to Daventry on ford courses and see if I can find it.
