Borg Warner 44-47 Fluid?

So is the Borg Warner 44-47 Fluid just ATF+4?

The manual calls for 44-44 fluid, but that fluid is for those clutches in the 44-44. I'm thinking the 44-46 and 44-47 are probably not as picky.

I've spent a lot of time trying to find an answer... thought someone here might know. Thanks!

That's an excellent question that I don't think I have heard discussed here before. And I don't have a supported answer. My thoughts are 44-44 is atf-4. (Revision) found where all three use the same part number, so looks to be atf-4 for all of them. Need to research some for a definitive answer.

Question

Sequential numbering (4-5-6-7) maybe just a reference year for informational updates .


Good question

They are different on the inside. The 44-44 uses clutches and is more of an "all wheel drive" system.

The 46 and 47 are true locking 4x4 TC's that use either chains or belts (I'm guessing.)

44-44 is 1500 and 46/47 is HD as well.

No problem on the posting - I though it was just my vision .

See if you can get any specific information out of the Amsoil guys concerning your question - they often will reply with very detailed parameters on their comparable products.

I just drained and filled my g56. And I researched some to find what I should fill it with. I was figuring gear oil and was surprised to find out it uses atf-4. Never considered it a manual transmission fluid. The SAE viscosity is 65. I would have never guessed..

Very interesting ...viscosity must be the key to success .

I had a 1974 Dodge van with a three speed manual transmission, when I changed the transmission fluid, I was surprised to see it was automatic transmission fluid. I researched, to be sure someone didn't put the wrong fluid in the transmission. I discovered that you use automatic transmission fluid, unless with high mileage, the transmission becomes noisy, then you can change to 80w90 gear oil, to keep the transmission from making a lot of gear noise.
