Hi Klaus

I have manuals for the WC series here at home (in Skive - phone 9751 1577).
The engine and transmission oils are the same as for my WC51 (1943). That
means SAE30 for the Engine and SAE90 for all transmissions and
differentials. Mind you, I find that I go through some SAE30 in the summer
because its too thin. So in the summer months (starting April, ending
October) I make a mixture of 70% SAE30 and 30%SAE90. Cooling has been
vastly improved since I started doing that. Call me if you want further
info (I do speak Danish).
