hydraulic fluid question

Postby Rockguy » Sun Dec 09, 2007 7:24 pm

I need to fill my touch control system the manual says sae 10w oil but of coarse the manual is 55 years old . Should I use the lightweight #32 hydraulic fluid or the heavy duty # 68 fluid?
Thanks Steve

Everyone here will tell you hytran, but I can tell you from personal experience any light grade motor oil will work just as well.

That's true Bill. I just happen to have hy-tran. My cub had oil in it when I got it the po told me. Worked just fine!
