    ok lets take this the other direction for a change...since most of us prefer meyer, boss, or the blue stuff from angelo's because of its anti freezing capabilities in a hydraulic system...why wouldnt it work in a mopar 727 tranny instead of atf? wouldnt this also improve cold weather performance of our transmissions? i'll be curiously awaiting your responses.

    AFT has friction modifiers in it. hyd fluid does not, it has more lubricity
    If you put hydro fluid in your tranny it would start to slip.
    I know the old 727 is a bomb proff trany, I abuse the ones I have.(68 Dodge charger 440 r/t & 74 sno*commander)
