I believe they originally came with 140w, some places you can still get it, but I think mostly 80-90w or 85-140w would be easier to find and should work ok. I know in the ZA manual it mentioned about thinning the rear end oil with kerosene for winter operation and then draining and replacing with 140w in the spring.

I filled my UTU with 85W90 about 10 years ago - it seems to work fine.

The stuff in the rear end when I got the tractor was extremely stiff - almost a solid. In colder weather the shift lever was impossible to move until the engine had run 5 - 10 minutes with the clutch engaged. Replacing it with 85W90 eliminated the problem, and the transmission still runs nice and quiet.

My fluid was so thick some of it would not drain, and I had to scoop it out with my hands.
