    Default Power steering fluid

    I have a old 1978 Ford 515 tractor and i bought it a couple of months ago. I need to fill it up with Power steering fluid, but the manual i have say use ESN-M2C41-A oil. Well I cannot find that type of oil. Does anyone know what style of modern Power Steering oil i can use? I was thinking just use to any style of Power Steering oil, because they have made great inprovements on oil since 1978. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Not sure if this will help or not, but:

    a google search found this in reference to a Ford 3000 transmission oil

    New Holland 134 hydraulic oil or the equivalent.
    We have too much gun control.
    What we need is more idiot control.

    ditto what rick said. Plainly.. UTF.. most utfs in the 35$+ ranghe, per 5g will meet the 134 spec. a few of the bargain basement 25-30$ ones don't... etc.

    that said.. the ps pump would likely eat any oil in the 10-30w range.. but the correct stuff is easy to find..e tc..
