Type "F" VS Dextron

I'm in the process of rebuilding my Dodge 518 transmission and was told that I should use type F fluid in it instead of the recommended Dextron by the local parts guy. What's the difference? I always thought that type F had friction modifiers in it, and were only for Ford trannies. Any advantage to using it in Dodge or GM trannies? Thanks./ Dan

type F has less friction modifiers in it. It will cause a harder shift and less slipping...just like the "trick shift" type stuff.

I would suggest your using the modern fluid type that the kit manufacturer recommends. They are the ones that made the clutch and band material, so they should know..... right?

Of course, I like Mobil 1 Synthetic.
