No problems.

In all fairness to RL, people in the 39 forum use it to great satisfaction, so maybe my 540 is allergic.

Oh, ATF is what it calls for.

I just looked at Bentley (just to learn) and found it to be quite vague. Your advice seems to be based on much experience.

OP, I would take HB's advice were I in your position
Most problems are usually something simple !
