Hydro fluid choices

Recommended Posts

Since I have that pricey new filter for the Vickers hydro in the 3310 H, it would be foolish to not change the fluid, too. The "Repair Mnaual, In-Line Hydrostatic Unit" (TP-234) specs Type A, F or Dexron ATF. The "LFGT Service & Repair Manual" (Rev. 4/2001 TP 500-0973-01-SV-SMA) does not spec any fluid for the Vickers, but for the Sundstrand specs Type A, F or Dextron ATF or Simplicity Multi Purpose Hydraulic Fluid. Since I have yet to use a hydro tractor I have zip for experience with hydro fluids. Is one type any better than the others? Is there any difference between Dexron and Dextron or is that just a typo that didn't get caught? Thanks in advance for your input....

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
