Anyone change out thier diamond drive lubricant and use something besides the DD lube? My dealer is out and has been since the snow left , and
I am wondering what can be used in its place. My dealer won't say and it used to be owned by the developer if the DD. If anyone knew I thought they would. But its all tight lipped!!!!!

Is it just a light weight gear lube?

we use DEXTRON/MERCON automatic transmission fluid.
works very well.
tranny fluid is extremely high in detergents.
keeps everything shiny and spotlessly clean.
no problems what so ever in 12000 miles.
changed every spring.
my gear case holds 4 fl. oz.
check your owners manual for proper oz. fill.

(the O.E.M. is synthetic gear lube)

Did you mean "synthetic gear lube" is in it from Cat or "synthetic ATF"?

Just remember, once you're over the hill, you begin to pick up speed.

75/90 is too thick.
it will never last.
hope you have lots of cash,that diamond drive has some very expensive parts.
Cat is not going to warranty that drive system,you failed to use proper fluid.
again, its just too thick.
good luck.

Too thick??? Explain that.

The spec sheet on AMSOIL synthetic ATF and synthetic 75W-90 gear lube have very similar pour points of -60.
