    Default Transmission fluids

    I have a paragon p-200
    It takes type A fluid according to the manual. It appears that has changed to dextron 2. Is it ever worth using a compatible synthetic?

    Maybe try the marine engine forum?

    I'd add that my two cents are: A Paragon gear is a pretty low-stress environment for lubrication. As long as you keep clean fluid in it, keep it topped up and keep it cool I don't see any reason to go synthetic. But that's a semi-informed opinion at best. I'm not an expert on marine gears.

    I found this, but I'd want to really be sure...

    Well I know I can't go wrong with conventional fluid, and I sure as heck know there are no internal computers. They are noisy critters though.
