YES - I did a search. That's how I got to this thread.http://www.thedieselstop.com/archives/ub...amp;fpart=1.htm
OK sports fans, here's the buzz...
After a prior discussion in this forum, I sent a sample of MMO to Blackstone for analysis. I told them that the type of oil was UNK, but that it may be ATF. I poured the sample straight from the metal quart can.
MMO certainly looks like ATF, though the smell is only similar.
Here's what I received back just today.
I'm quoting from the comments section of the report.
JIM: This isn't ATF unless it is mixed with something. ATFs have a viscosity in the 10W range and flash off at about 360F at the lowest. ATFs usually have more additive in them than this. We suspect this may be a light hydraulic known generically as Mil-S-5606. It is used in high flying aircraft hydraulic systems being impervious to the cold. No moisture or insolubles found. No wear metals. This oil appears, from here, to be in serviceable condition.

As for the elements that were found in the sample there were 32 ppm of Boron, 2 ppm of silicon, 1 ppm cacium, 902 ppm phosphorus, and 2 ppm zinc.
The SUS viscosity at 210F was 34.4. The flashpoint was 190F.
That's all there is. There ain't no more.
