  1. Welcome highland .

    only thing I can say is , if you going to commit to this ? Be prepared to spend three to four times your present budget to get it going. Project like that cost a lot of time and money. No shortcuts

    I don’t recommend 80 / 90 wt for your differential,your got brass bushings  in there. Straight Sae 90 wt Gl1 mineral oil.
    for that tractor differential. 

    you can get it at tractor supply or napa 

    gl4 or gl5 has high sulphur for hypoid gear extra pressure . That sulfur latches onto brass in extra pressure situation and fret soff brass . Made that mistake in supercc and c had frets of brass collected in bottom of differential in a year latter ,drain all that stinking gray crap out and went to napa and got sae 90 gl1 and put it in.cs . 

    my advice do what you want your choice 

    Took this photo of the super C after one year using 80/90 gl5 high sulphur oil . Blue trowel  used to wipe out differential case shows the brass frets .

    Brass frets came from the bronze bushings in the transmission that sulfur attacks (attaches to bronze ,under load tear small frats off bearing surfaces). The oil smells ,reaks with sulfur ,and has a gray color. 

    why I only use sae 90 gl1 mineral gear oil in my and c super c now .

    Guys post why is my transmission so noisy ,well I would say it could be ,they used  got gl5 oil in differential . Or I lost the pto bushings , shaft is wobbly , Took out the bronze bushings. My opinion.

    I had a discussion with lube specialist at Warren lubricants, recommended me to switch. To Sae 90 gl1 ,. Ok all I’ll say about it.

    We passed by closer to the north shore of the lake. Should pass by later today heading east. Near Sarnia/port Huron rn. We’re heading down east for the rest of my time here. Got some Halifax runs, Quebec, PEI and cape breton. Think a Newfoundland run or two also. Of course we’re going to PEI as far as possible from my house so no short visit home...

  4. I think the timing needs to be reduce,  has to . Firing would be too early . 
    I had the bulletin for the fire crater but didn’t need it , just kept the one for a C . The 25 degree shaft I think is the right one ,not sure.
