Neither. How old is that oil?

DEXRON III (GM based) is the replacement. The only current use I know of for TYPE A (and this used whale oil until the use was outlawed) is for a gear box on certain bikes.

I can't help you any further. Maybe someone else can help you. Ol' Don had the answer, just dump anything into it.

If anyone here actually has an EDSEL 1958/59 361, and if possible, find and post any CASTING ID NOS you come across, especially the block?

It would be greatly appreciated.
