Quick question to the expert. I think I have the 5 speed Getrag. Do you know which Type Abbreviation it bears? There are so many: M5 ZF5 T5? Which is it?

We know them as the A-555.

There is a tag on top of the trans.

It's stamped A- 555 and 3:85 ratio.

Great trans. but need to be overfull by 1 pint.

Originally filled with ATF but that's proved inadequate.

Most now use regular Engine oil EG: 5-30 10-30 or #30.

The heavier the better but thick can be slow shifting when very cold.

Failures are generally lube related and parts now very hard to source.

The 1987-1989 A -520 is a direct replacement from non Turbo models.

Thanks
Randy
