I use mercon V in my e4od and the valvoline full synthetic transfer case fluid in the bw1356. I think there is a thread around here discussing the valvoline transfer case fluid that may be worth a search and read.

Dexron III is compatible to original fluid since Ford doesn't offer it anymore. No need to go Motorcraft if you don't feel like it.

I run carquest generic multi-atf in my 96 c6. I bought a 5 gallon bucket when i was going through a gallon every couple weeks. Finlay found a broken part on the c6 case.

dont use mercon V in a transfer case. it would be fine for the transmission though. I would just run dex/merc. like mobil d/m. summit has cases of 6 quarts for $20.

mercon V will not harm the t-case. Mercon V will work for anything that originally called for mercon fluid
