    put in a utf meeting m2c134 spec ( hust about all of them do.

    In reality. a good pump and seals would likely run on anything from atf to real 'ps' fluid, to 10w30 engine oil all the way up to 30w engine oil.. and most of the iso 32/46/64 plain hyd oils, including straight jack oil.

    it's just not a real picky system.

    go with utf..... you can top the sos off with it too.. etc
