lubrican types for Samurai

Check out the 1988 samurai Factory Service manual (downloadable at Ack's FAQ - search for fsm) for all the information on lubricant types and quantities. The link to Ack's FAQ is in my signature, below.

You might want to avoid using GL5 Gear oil as it contains additive that are harmful to brass components in manual transmissions. For more information do a search for gl5 at Ack's FAQ.

...and yes, 50 weight oil is too heavy for the engine.

I hope that this helps!
