MTF 0063 Substitution?

New axle seals just arrived and I'm pulling the transmisison again today.

What are you guys running for MTF? Hopefully there's something out there that's easy to find at Autozone, Advanced, O'Reilly's, or maybe NAPA and is still pretty good?

I'm not convinced I won't be pulling it again shortly so I just don't want to have to order more of this 0063.

Leaving for the store in about 15 minutes. Anyone?

If anyone has been thinking about trying a certain fluid for one reason or another I'll try it for you and report back.

I run redline, but you must flush the 0063 first, you can't mix the two.

Seems like there's some Colbalt SS people out there that think the Saab 0063 is some sort of synthetic Castrol 75/90w.

I picked up some Royal Purple 75/90w that I'm going to try.

Don't know if the stuff below is correct or not, it's from here: http://www.cobaltss.net/forums/showthread.php?t=37125

Here you go this is what I could find on MTF for the F35:

Here is the stock F35 Manual Transmission fluid:
-SAAB MTF 0063, SAABs fully syntetic 75W/90 from Castrol

Here are some equivalents (when using an "equivalent" you take risks of causing problems):
-Special 2105 Quaker State Mineral 75W/90 API GL 4EP
-Super Qudralube Quaker State Mineral 75W easy shifting API GL 5 EP
-High Performance Quaker State Mineral 80W-90 also to differential LS-EP. API GL 5
-High Performance Quaker State Mineral 85W-140 also to differential LS-EP API GL 5
-Synchron Fully Synt. Quaker State Helsyntet 75W-90 also to differential LS-EP API GL 5
-SMX-S Castrol gearboxoil fully syntetic 75W/85 API GL 1-4
-EP 80 Castrol gearboxoil Mineral 80W API GL 4
-Syntrax Universal Castrol gearboxoil semisyntetic 75W/90 API GL 4/5 LS

I looked for a local place that had Redline and there wasn't anything close; I'm just going to try this RP and see how that goes. Tranny won't be in the car so it won't be hard to drain.
