Restoration Supply touts that it is good with yellow metals but I wonder where that information came from. Chevron's info even states it has the heavy smell of EP additives.

There are other ISO 1500 lubricant available that have no additives.
Please, provide info of those others and link to vendors. Just remember not all of us can by per gallon.

Thank you !!!
