• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

SWEPCO 210 ???


along with the scout, i also have a 2016 F 150 with the 9.75 rear axle.

question is do you think it is ok to use SWEPCO 210 gear oil in the ford diffs ??

ford says use only Motorcraft® SAE 75W-85 Premium Synthetic Hypoid Gear Lubricant XY-75W85-QL W

my common sense tells me the SWEPCO 210 is fine for the ford diffs

but SWEPCO man what do you think ?

Regarding the Ford diffs:
The SWEPCO 210 would work fine, but it is not a synthetic blend oil, therefore it would not meet the oem specification and could possibly void any warranty issues you may have....even though it is highly unlikely that one would occur because of the 210.
Over the years, and most currently since about 20 years ago, quite a few oems went to using synthetic oils to cover extreme operating temps both low and high, however SWEPCO 210 is extremely close to those same ranges without being synthetic.
Most oems call for 75W90 Synthetic gear oil, which SWEPCO does manufacture to meet those specs, it is SWEPCO 202 75W90 Synthetic Gear Oil and it also contains their additive package which includes moly. This would be more in line with the Ford oil than the 210 is. For more info on this and other products go to the SWEPCO website at USSwepco.com and click on the lubricants section, then select the product category and choose the product you want to see the information for.
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, I am away from my desktop and it was difficult to get logged on with my wife's laptop.
