I have been told my Hurth Gearbox should be filled with A.T.F.oil which I presume is "automatic transmission fluid" oil.

Are all ATF oils the same or should I be looking for something more particular?

Will the stuff from Halfords do?

Thanks

... ... except it doesn't mention type A on my 1 litre container of Castrol TQF DIII. I had the same problem and found (Google!) that this is a modern equivalent to type A. ps don't use type F it will ruin the clutches!

... and if you ruin the clutch plate, and its an MD22 or Perkins Prima its attached to, you're in for a very very unpleasant surprise at the cost for a replacement!!!!

Sent you a private message re possible problem with a 411 I am looking to buy.
