OMD90


OMD90 can be a semi or fully synthetic, severe duty oil intended for use in Diesel engines. It has a 10W30 viscosity grade and must meet or exceed API grade SG/CF-4 or ACEA grade A3/B3.

OLD is Oil Mineral Detergent, OX90 is synthetic.

10w30 for everything that needs oil. some people do use 15W40 in the engine.- all oil sshoul be mineral oil. The cheapest way is a 20 litre drum of ebay for about £45.

Do not use semi synthetic or synthetic, especially in the gearbox.

Never heard of OLD referred to as Oil Mineral Detergent, it’s always been OMD in the RAF. OX being oil miscellaneous.

Robin,

 

what you need is Defstan 01-005 - it came up on the oil equivalent thread. This will tell you the NSN, MOD name and al the specs, including civvy equivalent.  It seems you now need to register with the Defstan people and you can find it through google.

PS, my Cummins B series manual says 15W40 for -10 to +45C, 10W30 for -25 to +20C and 5W30 for -40 to + 20C.
