Assuming you're using some sort of pump to put it in, just pump out 8oz into a measuring cup. After which that cup will never back into the kitchen and the wife will be pissed, so buy her a new one as a gift. You get double points!

This is exactly what I did. I used an old water bottle and marked off 240ml/8oz, then just filled the bottle to that mark.

So if you want to be exact, use a measuring cup, put that amount of water into an old water bottle, and mark it. Use the bottle to put the trans oil into. Don't waste a good measuring cup and risk pissing off the wife

FYI - when Googling "Tremec Syncromax" I came across this article with some interesting perspective from GM and Tremec on the use of synthetic lube in the TR6060

Attached the service manual flush procedure. Again, no need to remove any bracing. Its not messy if you follow the manual and mask off the surrounding areas. I just used 3 zip lock bags and some duct tape.
Very cool, thanks for sharing, didn't want to remove the cross member just to change trans fluid.

Nice topic!

Does anybody did a transmission flush on Zl1 A10?
-guessing itís a different fluid,
-suppose itís a little bit different

Given this wonderful article, and the list of theoretically compatible "Syncromesh" type gear lubes, has anyone tried any of the higher viscosity/viscosity index lubes, such as 'Amsoil Synchromesh' or 'Pennzoil Synchromesh'? It seems the 'Royal Purple Synchromax' is the winner among you guys.

BUT, depending on how thick the TR6060 likes its lube, dare I ask if better or more consistent results may occur using the Amsoil or Pennzoil due to their higher viscosity indexes than the Royal Purple Synchromax (remaining a more consistent viscosity through the temperature range)? These oils are thicker, and I'm not sure if the TR6060 prefers a thicker or thinner oil.

The Royal Purple Synchromax tests as the thinnest of all the lubes shown, does anyone know if that's what it prefers? Not trying to reinvent the wheel here, though it may seem as such. Lol
