HYPOID GEAR OIL

Postby guitarzan » Sun Mar 15, 2015 9:25 pm



Hello,
I have a 1994 Goldwing SE 1500 and it calls for Hypoid Gear Oil SAE 80. Now I see a lot of SAE 80 W 90. Can I use that instead of the recommended SAE 80 straight weight?

Thank you
Frank

Well its nice that you can still work on wings at your place. I wish I could find someone around here that did that. I'm just going to start small and work my way up to the big stuff. I would like to do my own tire changing but tire changers are kind of big bucks. I am going to do my own timing belts.

I remember doing my first brake job on my 63 corvette. I had all the tires off and all the brakes disassemble and I couldn't get it back together and I had to call a tow truck to take it to a gas station to get it done. Lol

you can do a lot of your own repairs its not as bad as it looks just start at the beginning and work threw it if its a running problem I tell people you need sound eng. ,spark, fuel , air figure out what you don't have and the hard part is done then its just replacing parts. electrical can be a bear but there are good books and a lot of people on here that have been there and can help

Guitarzan, Little Beaver made a tyre changer at home. It looks pretty straight forward from his pictures, so do a search and I am sure you will find it. This may start you on your tyre changing career... and dont forget to thank Little Beaver.

The secret to doing brakes as a DIY guy is only do one wheel at a time. That way, you have a complete set of instructions just a few feet away on the other side of the car.
