    You are on the right track for sure. Mobile 1 also makes a synthetic gear oil 75-90 which I use in my tranny. If you can't get the HD Primary +, another good alternative is a 10w-40 without any friction modifiers - like Amsoil. Just a suggestion. I use the HD Primary + in my '07 Heritage Classic.
