Leroy Somer tell me that the MVA gearbox was originally filled with Shell Tivela A

Shell Tivela Compound A is a synthetic, semifluid gear lubricant. It was developed in co-operation with major gear manufacturers to meet the demand for high quality, long life gear lubricants. Shell Tivela Compound A consists of a synthetic base oil blended with a controlled quantity of highly stable lithium soap and special additives to give outstanding lubrication performance

According to the Shell website Tivela A has been replaced by  shell gadus s5 v142w 00 
which seems to have the same specification.

These are both synthetic oils with lithium soap.
