The rattle is normal. All the oil engine and tranny oil are the same. Don't worry about the rattle. These things have loud motors. I was concerned the first time I heard it to. Don't worry about it. She's all good :thumbsup:

Hay Mate,
I have had the best luck with Motul 10w-40w semi syn. If you want to save a little money than Rotel 10W-40w works just as well. You can get that at your local tractor or deisel shop. Good luck with your new perchace.
