Correct fluid?

Need to change the fluids in my '92 W250, but still haven't gotten a manual for it yet.

Need to know the type and capacities for the diffs, transfer case and the Getrag.

TIA.

Make sure when you are filling the Getrag to overfill it. Total capacity of 5 quarts. Easiest way to do this is to remove the shifter and pour it in. Some people remove the top bolt on the PTO cover and fill it through there. It take 5w30 engine oil.

I prefer 85W-140 for the differentials and 4 speeds, haven't run a 5 speed but the recommend is synthetic, the only oils left that have the zinc for flat lifters on the engine are Delo 400 and Walmart Universal (thank the low sulfur legislation), no known problems with any coolant, DOT 3 brake fluid, power steering fluid, +4 ATF - Dexron slips without the friction modifier (if it does not feel the same, suck a second gallon out after a road test. Honda recommends 4 partial changes for contamination with non-Honda approved ATF), 205 transfer case (cast iron ) same as differentials, chain drive transfer case - most are happy with ATF but some have special needs with the torque bias clutches. Moly-grease for the chassis that vintage and acceptable for u-joints, white grease for body hinges (hood, door, tailgate).

Not in the manual - ATF is an excellent substitute for the white grease for hinges, latches and keeping corrosion off the battery terminals. Used ATF sprayed on the bottom and in the rocker panels with an undercoating gun slows rust without being real messy.

I have seen so many people ruin their manual transmissions due to using the wrong fluid.
