Hi guys,
a workmate came to me regarding a compatible oil for a new bit of gear that he's installing. Problem is I'm stuffed if I can find an equivalent.

Allowable lubes are:
NKS Oil #200
Daphne Torque Oil A
Jomo Torcon AW18
Mobil Pegasus Converter Fluid/Spinesso 10
Shell Tellus C10
Super Mulplus 10
Cosmo Torque Oil 15

Looking at the shell designation, it looks like a zinc free hydrauilic ISO 10 grade. Pour point is specified as -40C, which makes me think synthetic, as even the mineral ISO15s only go down to -27 to -30.

Shell only go down to ISO 22 in Oz, with BP down to ISO15.

I don't know if it meets your spec of zinc free but mobil velocite no. 6 is an ISO 10.
You get what you pay for...
So keep in mind how much you paid for this advice.

Thanks for that.

I've also found Caltex Rando HD.
