    I ran ATF in my '92 from shortly after I got it until I bought a computer in 1999 and read on Harley forums what terrible, irreparable damage I was doing inside my chain case. :newsmile105: I changed to a primary lube, and really haven't noticed any difference. Most front wheel drive cars have chains and clutch plates in the auto trans. Read all the opinions in the above link and make your decision.
