ok thanks in the manual it said lubricant vicosity : ep90 gl5 and the lubricant type was multipupose api gl4 so was abit confused , if i cant find gl4 will gl5 harm the gearbox ? the oil i drained was dark brown / black someone had overfilled it previously from the top of the gearbox.

I won't fill a gearbox with GL5. I believe there is a compound in that could harm the brass of the syncros over time. A EP90 or 80W90 GL4 will do the job

No it won't matter. The older gearboxes like yours ussualy runs on 80W90 but I don't think you will have a problem with 75W90
