I have machines to use, but not exactly sure what fluid was intended, and the best place to get it. Itd be nice to know your procedure in cleaning out the original vc parts and fluid as well.
    believe it or not, you can just buy it on amazon. the car originally had 80,000cst fluid in the vc. no one sells that but you can buy 60k and 100k and mix them. i did that once, but i think just buying 100k fluid to be done with it is the way to go. you will have in theory 20% more lock up.

    here is the link

      Or you could put less 100k fluid into it and have the same performance with a greater margin against heat damage.

        Possibly. I’m not too sure it works that way though
