Use Roots brand oil if you can find it. Aeon is popular, but I've found it to be foamy in my 47DSL. Just got some Super Lube to try.

Roots says not to use Mobile SHS due to sludge and seal leakage problems.

use whatever exotic juice with UUE* you want.
It ain't rocket science ....it's just gears...any gear lube suitable for manual transmissions or diffs is more than fine


*unicorn urine enhanced additives notwithstanding

I disagree. The DSL in Roots DSL blowers stands for dual SPLASH lubrication. Oils other than Roots brand that I've tried are foamy. The slinger doesn't throw foam well, resulting in insufficient lubrication.

I don't know of any gear oil that has detergent additives in it
(my understanding, that's where foam in oil comes from)
