|| LONGER GEAR LIFE -
formulated using blends of high quality paraffinic and synthetic base
fluids which have been found to provide excellent oxidation resistance,
stability, and film strength.
|| REDUCED FRICTION AND OPERATING
TEMPERATURES - The
new line is formulated with more thermally stable and
resistant extreme pressure (EP) additives that do not sacrifice any
load-carrying capability. Its oxidation resistance provides improved
thermal stability at elevated temperatures. In fact the
line boasts impressive EP performance with a Timken OK Load of 75lbs
along with reduced deposit formulation.
|| NON-FOAMING IN ACTION -
The 1600 DUOLEC™ Series contains non-silicone Defoamants
are not easily removed when the gear oils are filtered, thus they also
last longer in the oil. They help improve the ability to monitor direct
contamination during oil analysis as the gear oil does not contain
silicone which can sometimes confuse customers when trying to remove
dirt from their oil.
|| REDUCED WEAR -
DUOLEC™ is LE's proprietary additive incorporating
technology designed specifically for use in LE gear lubricants. It is a
temperature activated, dual acting, liquid additive that imparts
special properties and synergies to the LE Products in which it is
used. DUOLEC™ increases lubricant film strength and protects
metal surfaces outperforming conventional lubricant additives at
greater temperatures and loads.
- Contains a highly shear stable tackiness system that allows these
products to adhere to metal components yet remain tacky and within
viscosity grade during high shear use or filtration
|| EXTENDED DRAIN INTERVALS
- friction reduction, oxidation resistance and cooler operation prolong
effective oil life to provide extended drain intervals.
|| OXIDATION RESISTANCE
- is assured by the natural high oxidation resistance of the selected
paraffinic base oils coupled with oxidation inhibitors.
|| SEPARATES READILY FROM WATER
- to provide effective lubrication when moisture is present. Ordinarily
gear oils will emulsify and foam, causing increased frictional heat and

|| Drain oil
presently in the differential as completely as possible while the truck
is still warm. This also helps remove contaminants and oxidized oil
which can impair performance of LE gear lubricants. If contaminated oil
remains in the differential, foaming can occur.
|| Do not use
a volatile, chlorinated solvent or solvent-type flushing compound to
wash out the differential. Any solvent trapped in the voids of the
reservoir will cause corrosion. Also the presence of even a very little
amount of solvent-type flushing compound will reduce the viscosity of a
gear oil. Further, without a coating of oil for even a short time,
rusting of internal parts of the differential can take place.
|| To properly
flush the differential, use a light viscosity turbine oil or
non-detergent engine oil (SAE 10 or 20). Jack up your truck (no-load
condition) and run in gear for 15 minutes and drain. Note that some
units can be so badly oxidized that physical removal from the inner
surfaces may be required.
|| If new
gears are installed make sure that the new gears that come with a rust
preventative are cleaned off. This insures that any rust preventative,
debris, metal chips and core sand is removed before installation.
