I also have to believe based off emails I received from ZF, that no other fluid (Castrol, Red Line) can be considered as a direct equivalent, even though they might say as such on their website.
I too have been in contact with pentosin, via phone, and they recently recieved a call from ZF stating that they should say that their fluid is only approved for 3-5hp transmissions. They told me that their fluid should indeed be fine for the 6hp, but that they cannot make an official statement, because of ZF.
