Penrite Transoil 250 is the heaviest of non additive gear oils equivalent to what was known as 600w or 'steam cylinder oil'. We sell a lot of it to our customers with Ford Model 'A's. Ideal for veteran and Edwardian rear axles or where a gearbox may require thick oil.
A premium non additive non-EP API GL1 rated SAE250 gear oil. Designed specifically for use in veteran, vintage and Edwardian gearbox, transaxles and selected spur and bevel type rear axles where an API GL1 non EP SAE250 or 600w oil is specified. It does not contain any aggressive load carrying additives that may cause corrosion damage to ferrous and non ferrous metal types used in these types of vehicles.
Recommended for use in manual transmissions and transaxles in veteran, vintage and Edwardian vehicles. It is suitable for use in rear axles of veteran cars of one, two and four cylinders. It contains a special additive to help the load carrying ability of the oil. Contact with any water or moisture should be avoided or seal degradation may occur.
