Recommendations for oil bath hubs

2 posts in this topic

Need to replace one of the outer caps on my 2000 RangerTrail that is running the Oil Bath Hubs. Ranger says to run 50W non-detergent oil in the hubs, but that stuff is impossible to get ahold of. Thinking of using 80-90W gear lube as a stop-gap. Anyone use the gear lube for extended periods of time? Other opinions?

Thanks.

I've seen something about non-detergent oils not foaming as badly as detergent oils. Dunno about that for sure though.

Where I work, we use axles with oil-bath hubs and, AFAIK, 80W-90 gear lube is what's specified for them. It is a MUCH bigger axle we're using though - think similar to OTR truck.
