I went to Rural King, Tractor Supply, Walmart, and all the auto parts stores in my county. Nobody has 90 wt gear oil. Most of them have 75w-90 and 85w-90 but nobody has any SAE 90. Anybody else noticed this?

What calls for straight 90w gear oil? Usually it's 75w90, 80w90, 75w140. What are you putting it in that wants that spec?

Probably in his Yanmar. But he doesn't say where it is. Maybe a desert? :unsure:

I haven't seen straight 90 weight in 20-30 years. But I haven't looked for it either. There's nothing that calls for 90 wt that can't use 80w-90 or 75w-90.

Pretty much any 90 weight appears to be short on the shelves, everyone has a quart but that seems to be it. Broke down and ordered online when I was trying to get enough to service my disc mower a few weeks ago. I usually keep a quart or two on hand, guess I gotta up that some.

Yep, I use it in the front axle on the Yanmar. I am a creature of habit, I ended up using 75W-90. I just thought it was strange because Rural King usually has a stack of it in the 2 gallon jugs which makes it easy to service the axle. When I couldn't find it I went straight to tractor supply and they were out too. So then it became a mission. I drove around for over an hour looking for it before I just picked up two gallons of the 75W-90.

Perfect. Now your axle will be covered with a lube that has a better temperature range, not that it matters much in your neck of the woods.
