Default primary oil

Looking for the short answer.
Is there another brand of oil I can get for my primary at the auto parts store?
Which one?
Thanx.

I may catch a lot of heat for this but. . .B&M TrickShift. It's been working for me so far. . .

I replaced my clutch a couple years ago and Energy One recommended a type F ATF fluid. They "preferred" B&M Trick Shift and that is what I use. The did recommend that you DO NOT USE the Harley syn 3 in the primary as it is too slick!! I think a good brand Type F (Ford) Auto Trans lube, B&M Trick Shift will work well. I also liked the Harley sports trans fluid as well.
