I use Amsoil mtf, others have used redline and RP. You can order direct from amsoil I don't know about the others.

search the forum for NV5600
you can buy the Dodge/Citgo synthetic special stuff at $25 a qt.
or
I run 5 qts of Redline MTL and 2 qts of MT-90 with 2 PTO coolers on, have to dump the last 2 qts thru the top shift cover hole.

part it on a side hill with fill hole up the hill, can get 5 qts in then. 4 is not enough for proper gear lube and cooling.
5600 runs hot especially towing heavy.

I also use Amsoil MTF. 6 quarts by filling through the top PTO cover bolt hole. Need a small gear lube pump to do it.

According to a top Cummins tech, only Amsoil MTF 5w-30 and the factory Mopar stuff is what you can run. they are the only 2 that won't void warranty. 5qts is about the norm. Amsoil MTF is also rated for up to 150K per change. Take out the bottom center PTO cover bolt for draining then pull the PTO cover and suck the rest out.

6 quarts of AMSOIL MTF will cover ya. I also have hand pumps for getting the fluid up in there if you're interested.

I don't believe that Royal Puke oil makes a MTF 5w-30. Again only Amsoil and Mopar are the only 2 that I'm aware of that makes a fluid for the nv5600.

I tried the RP before, I will not go back, My tranny shifts smoother with amsoil than it did with RP. Go ahead and give it a try if you want, some people have had good luck others don't, I am one that will not go back. The RP seemed thinner in weight.

I have Castrol SAE 75W90 Synthetic gear oil, would that be a problem. If the OEM is GL5 then it doesn't make a difference. I didn't use the Castrol yet!

I had an F350 FORD with a 5sd standard transmission, and 460 gas motor. The transmission used automatic transmission fluid!!! I was like, WOW!
