Default Correct rear axle oil for 1995 G5?

Hello,

I've looked around a bit and can't seem to find the information that I need. Does anyone know what the correct type and amount of rear axle fluid needed for my 1995 G5 is?

Thank you,
Scott

Should be listed in the service manual, and might even be listed in the owner's manual. Did you try googling for those? I always recommend to have the service manual if you are doing your own mechanical work, lots of good info in there.

Hi, I have the owner's manual but it's not listed there (engine oil is though...). I don't have the service manual but I'll dig around to see if I can find it online somewhere. Thanks for the tip.

I believe the G5 is the same as the G1. It's a 2 stroke engine, yes?

Here's a thread with a pdf version attached

Your thinking of G3. G5 is more like G2. I'd say regular old 80w90 gear oil.

Odd how G2 is "newer style 4-stroke", and G3 is older style 2-stroke. But "sun classic" models are the "oddballs" in many more ways than just that.

G1, G2, G9 were some of the best golf carts ever made IMO. Very simple and durable. I suppose if the G3 and G5 are hybrids, they should be good too lol.
