Oil equivalent chart

Question

Is there an accessible Oil equivalent chart on the site anywhere?

I think that I have seen one at least once and thought I had found it with  http://www.hmvf.co.uk/pdf/POLcompact.pdf

But that page can not be found.

Just need the equivalents of all the regular suspects as against Engine oil, Hydraulic, Brake fluids and Transmissions.

 

Should this be a sticky item on the menu?

Having seen a number of individual queries for specific oils.

There was a comprehensive oil equivalent list on this forum in 'Clives Corner it lists both British and U.S military oils & greases with civilian equivalents. It seems to have vanished now maybe you could contact FV1609 and see if he still has it, if not I have a hard copy of it that I could e-mail you.

Dear all,

 

the document you need is DefStan 01-005 - you can google it and download.  This gives the equivalent specs for everything.
