How does he know? There are numerous different types of naphtha besides VM&P, which happens to be the cheapest and only one available at Lowe's.This recipe is not Sea Foam exactly, but it is similar.

"Get 'er hot & drain the oil if you get black nasty oil then fill 'er up with diesel to the full mark & let 'er idle for 5-10min. Then drain it again, pull the filter & put new filter & oil in"
I have done this, on 4cyls & big block v8's, it works really well & seems to have no ill effect (just don't drive on diesel, not enough viscosity to handle any load or rev'ing). Never thought of doing it to trans / T-case / diffs though, probably work similarly... Get it hot, drain it, fill it with diesel/naptha or whatever, crawl around the block or up/down your road idling through the gears (for sticks) & then drain & refill with good stuff.
