Transmission oil?

Gotta drain the oil in my Ultima LSD 6-speed unit to reseal the leaky transmission studs with Loctite. Is there any particular viscosity or brand of gear oil that comes highly recommended? I've done some searching on here and couldn't come up with anything definitive. Thanks.

Thanks for the replies guys, how many quarts should I buy if I'm going to dump whatever's already in the case?

Also, since my transmission is brand new, should I look at replacing the gear oil after the first, say, 500 miles (which would mean I buy extra quarts beforehand?)? Thanks again.

+3 on the red line. 22-24 oz's..... not necessary to change after 500 miles. Should last for 25000 miles or so.

You guys running the Red Line oil, do you also use their brand of motor oil that is marketed specifically for Big Twin engines? Or is the commonly available 20W50 motor oil (Castrol / Mobil / Pennzoil / etc) adequate?

I would be buying a brand new engine (polished Ultima 113" Evo) for my build, so I understand I'd be running a different grade of oil for the break-in period. Thanks again.

A friend who logs many more miles than I do has convinced me to use Amsoil 20/50 synthetic in all 3 holes
