Tranny fluid concern

WHen i posted about changing my trans filter, I was adviced to use Merc V. I read in the tech articles, this is BAD to do on 93 and older MN12's. Why was I told this by numerous members? What is the reasom this fluid should not be used on my car. Thanks.

Everyday of my life is a constant fight, between wrong and right.

When there is no grass on the field, go around back and play in the mud.

The articles are older and inconsistent. Trust Jerry's word above all others. Some people claimed the seals were different and incompatible... but it's an old wives tale. Go right ahead and use Mercon V.
