RE: 120hp Lehman lube

The BW manual does approve the use of engine oil provided the rpm does not exceed 3000 which means it is ok for our low rpm diesels.
I know from my experience in working for a bearing company for many years that ATF is not a desireable bearing lube. Hence my decision to go with engine oil.
After 3 seasons so far so good.
