I found the following information about gear oils on the Rymax Lubricants web site. Rymax looks to be based in Holland, you might try looking at their products to find something suitable. I found GL-4 gear oils in 85W-140 weight on their site.

I found this oil in UK, Millers oil 140W and compatible with yellow metals :

Millers Gear Oil Vintage Green 140 GL1 - 1 litre

But as it's a GL1, I have doubts that it's enough in term of EP ? GL4 is much better on that side, but it's never written that it's compatible with yellow metals.

On the other side, the german importer of Lubriplate answered my email and I am now in contact of the shop responsible for France, Belgium and Holland.

Antwerp Lion Oil Works NV

They are selling by 16Kg units for 219€ + transport. With transport, Millers 140W or Lubriplate SPO 277 will be more or less at the same price per litre.

Look up PENRITE LUBRICANTS for steering gears. It's a heavy oil made for steering gears.

I consulted my Cord Owners Companion about the steering gear oil and it appears that the SPO-277 may be OK. Attached is the information in the book which indicates anything from SAE 110 to SAE 250 gear oil for the steering gear. The SAE 140 SPO-277 seems like it should be OK as it is in the range If you want to go with a heavier gear oil then the Lubriplate SPO-299 which is SAE 250 should be good. Sorry about the orientations of the pictures if they are off, I am not sure how to fix them here. .

Yes, I have some Penrite that I have used on other cars. That's what I was planning on using until I thought I read someone saying the SPO-277 should be used. Thanks!
