    Default Is this oil OK to use???

    The oil is called Trans-Hydraulic. And is sold at Family Farm and Home. My question is can this oil be used safely in the transmission and in the hydraulic compartment of a 1966 Ford New Holland 2000?????

    Not familiar with that store, but that sounds like what you want. As long as it is a good quality Hydra-Trans fluid. (also known as Tractor-Hydraulic)
    I use Mobilfluid 424, and I get it from the local Exxon-Mobil fuel supplier.

    I use Chevron 1000 THF.

    Chevron 1000 Thf - Alexis Oil - Fleet Fueling, Oil Products ...

    If you haven't already, check your shifter boots - it's one way water gets in. Even if the boots are good, if the 2000 sits outside, an empty 5 gal pail over the shifter can keep some rain away.

    Family Farm and Home sells oil that works in your Ford. It has the New Holland #m2c134 listed on the back of the jug. They also sell a couple of other varieties that don't have the New Holland numbers listed them.
