Yanmar 4JH3-HTE . . . What Transmission Fluid?

Just a quick question for those of you with the 4JH3, what transmission oil do you use with this engine? The maintenance guide specs out 1.2 quarts, but doesn't say of what. Thanks for any advice.

It depends on the transmission that you have. I have a 4JH3E with a Kanzaki KM3A-1 and use the same 30wt. that I use in the engine.

This will help. http://www.yanmarhelp.com/i_box2.htm

Forgot to add, check the quantity needed, it's probably liters and not quarts.
