transmission fluid

anyone know what type of tranny fluid to put in a 1979 Kreidler mp-19? my tansmission is kinda making this weird ticking sound... could this be anything else? on one of the kreidler websites, it just said something about "make sure you fill the transmission with oil".. hmmm...

In my Sachs manual, they refer to "transmission oil" which is of course tranny fluid. But yeah, they call it "oil" repeatedly. Mercon-Dextron is what they recommend. I'd go with that.

Yeah, that Kreidler looks really similar to a sachs, but who knows?

Re: transmission fluid

crisis: not me!

LOL

Re: transmission fluid

Re: transmission fluid

call akron mopeds and ask for maz. he knows kreidler and has a good impression on them.

Re: transmission fluid

awesome, thanks miguel...

his name is Maz? or did you mis-type Max? =]

Re: transmission fluid

it's maz. m-a-z. he's british. a really cool guy all around. tell him the moped army sent you.

Re: transmission fluid

Yeah,just talked to Maz the other day when I ordered a windshield.He's really nice and helpful too.Got to talk to chanan@megsinet.com (chuck212 on e-bay) also.Very nice guy I've bought several parts off of.

Re: transmission fluid

Don, How many windshields you got now? :)

Re: transmission fluid

Well,I expected to have 3 by a few days ago.But Maz at Akron Moped informed me last night that they had lost(misplaced) the mounting hardware for the last one so I've got 2(one mounted,one in the box).At least they hadn't charged my credit card yet.So I'll probably not be able to report on the one I told Paul and everybody about until I return from vacation around the 6th or later.IF we decide positively to go.(:>)
