I tried slick 50 in a saab gearbox which had a bit of a whine. Didn't
really make a difference (I drained it and put fresh oil in at the
same time too).
As the box got worse I started sticking EP-90 in it (box is supposed
to have 75-80 in it). that actually made it quieter!
It blew up about 5000 miles after the slick50 anyhow, so it could have
just been that the box was terminally ill anyhow and nothing could
stop it whining!
