I have a MD11C with an MSB gear box that has the friction lining on the cone. The manual calls for a 20 weight oil above 50 degrees. Maybe I should not try to out think the engineers that designed it, but 20 weight seems very light to me especially for the tropics where I am located. Does anyone know if Volvo ever changed the oil specification to a heavier oil. Why would they spec such a thin oil. Input please.
