Yup type A is mentioned an heck of a lot on all the links I have been looking at.

Type A is a very old specification. Use Dexron II instead.

Or use EP-A 80W manual gearbox oil.

Thanks for the inputs. I think Dexron II is also specified for Pontons as well. Now I just have to look for Dexron II ATF. Haven't seen any in the nearby stores though. All they seem to have are Dexron III ATFs.
