The 71-B holds 2 liters or 4 1/4 US pints. Or until you can't add more to the fill hole when sitting level (more or less). Has to be GL4 NOT GL5 no matter what the collage boy behind the counter says about GL-5 being higher protection. Any Datsun transmission oil choice must be marked 'copper alloy' or 'yellow metal safe' for use. 90W will do or equivalent in synthetic although synthetic may wet the rear seal unless you put a new one in. It's very thin and slippery. I've been using the GM Delco Friction Modified Synchromesh Transmission Oil with good results. It cold shifts now without light grinding the first few times and I can now down shift without grinding which I could never do properly before. Shifts are much less effort so naturally they are faster.

There isn't a NAPA in sin city ?
Napa sells CRC StaLube.
But the GM Synchromesh is good shit also.
"All of a sudden it started making noise, then started losing power. I limped the car home and tried to get it up the driveway, the engine just died."
Why do people do this?
A $100 tow bill is never as much as the extra damage you cause by trying to "limp the car home".
Don't be that person !
