I have used both hd spec tran oil and 50w engine oil in my transmission over 5 years and found with 50w oil i got a smoother gear change.
I run 50w oil all year and use a oil cooler just smaller then skinners lockhart
and it runs fine and i would not run a ironhead without a cooler on as the rear pot gets so hot.
