I have a 47 Dodge power wagon with a 4 speed non synchronized 4 speed trans the shop manual calls for a 80w/140 oil. I have been reading some have been using a synthetic 50w oil as a replacement. I believe being a non syncro trans that a yellow metal compatible oil is not a concern so is it possible to get better performance from a modern 50w than the 80w/140 ?

just use any modern 80w90 or 75w140 i personally wouldn't use a 50 weight oil in the transmission.

The Delvac 50 was the product I saw being used in place of the 80w90. Its pricey too.

This one of the rare cases in which I would recommend this for older transmissions:

I am not sure how your old seals would respond take to the seal conditioning of something such as Redline MT-90 or Amsoil MTG.

Wouldnt hit the 140 requirement though unless the API gear oil ranges have shifted with time.

Exactly.
An OEM xW140 of that era would've a [email protected]*C range from 320 cSt to 748 cSt.

So you are saying a 140 like this may work because the specs have changed over the years?

Does this being a straight cut gear transmission make any difference ?

This StaLube ISO 460 gear oil fell under SAE xW140 of that era, and
It falls under modern day SAE xW140, therefore .....
absolutely yes , if OP wishes so. Coffee2

Straight cut gears has less severe sliding action, vis-a-vis high off-set hypoid gears.
Hence ,no difference here.
