Has anyone ever heard of or do you have any information on WEECO #8 gear oil for a Westinghouse elevator gear? I am look for specifications on this product or where I can get it or a substitute product.

Weeco #8 is manufactured by American Oil and Supply Co. It's a gearbox oil that is no longer specifically suggested by Westinghouse/Schindler. There is also a Weeco #8LT for cold weather use. The LT stands for Light wieght oil. The grade of the oil is AGMA-6 and if purchased from american oil can be Vitalube 6 or Weeco 8.
