I always used 75w 140 in my 30 and 8.8, both with arb's.

I have been using Valvoline 85W 140 in mine for 13+ years (not that the same oil has been in there for 13+ years ).

BTW: Nice link Martin!

Guy that did my ARB's sent it to me, then I lost it...
So I Googled "ARB air locker differential fluid" and found it again!

There aren't any friction clutch mechanisms in the ARB so I don't know why regular 90wt gear oil would do the job just fine....

Yep, and that's why SAE 90 is listed as 1 of 4 options in that link.
