I had to take off my primary cover the other day (first time since I bought it-77 XLT) It looked to be filled with oil, while I tried to clean it up and out, there are still no doubt some oil residue and such left over in the case and chain and such....

My question is....is it bad to mix (a little) oil and Transfluid? or should I just fill back up with oil again?

Guys used motor oil in the primary on early ironheads when there was nothing else available.
The bikes shifted like shit & the clutches got all gummed up.

With all of the other options available nowadays, there's really no reason to run that crap in your primary.
