I've always heard and used 1 full quart of honda HP 80w/85w gear oil. But recently heard ideal is a little less than full quart. Also heard that maxima gear oil protects better than Honda HP. How much and what brand does everyone use???

a quart might be just a bit much on a regular oil change, but a little over can be helpful also, if you smell your crank oil from exhaust you know you have a bad seal, and gives you the chance to make sure your bearings aren't ready to explode in your very expensive and getting hard to find mint OEM cases...keep your oil clean and you can use a LOT of different oils, as long as it doesn't contain MOLY, almost any oil will be better then dirty oil
