I need to know what kind of oil to put in the front drive shaft box(FW drive shaft). I put 80-90 oil in it like the front and rear drive boxes but I know that's not right. I cannot find anywhere what type of oil it takes. PLEASE help.

Does this help? I think what you're looking for is at the main bottom. Honda GN4.

Yeah, I know. Look at the main bottom of the specs. that I posted above. It says to use Honda GN4 motor oil in the transfer case. Engine oil for the crankcase is listed at the top.

Yes I am talking about the transfer case. I just didn't know what it was called it is located on the left side of the 4-wheeler and toward the front. I called the local Honda shop and they said 80-90W oil. BUT according to these specs that is not correct. I questioned this because when I drained the oil it was frothy and definatley NOT 80-90W. Thanks for the help.
