Field Controls has a synthetic lube specifically for the SWG, the use of other lubricants is not recommended and can cause premature failure.

Substitute can with does. I have a SWG 4HDS and I used regular oil last year, about a week after I put the oil in the motor it started growling, shaking and otherwise sounding like it was gonna dismount off the wall and run for the nearest scrap yard. :lol:

Trust me you want to use the special oil or at least some form of light weight synthetic!
