I thought this was discussed before, but I can't find it now- anyway what is a suitable substitute for allis 821 power fluid listed in the 900 series manual to be used in the hydro's. Local guys don't have 821 power fluid anymore. Thanks

Text taken right from the Simplicity repair manual on Sovereign type tractors with Sunstrand 15 hydros, "Simplicity Multi-Purpose Hydraulic Fluid or A, F or Dextron Automatic transmission fluid".

That's only when Allis was around, I'm not sure what the 821 is now but knowing these guys on here they will surely tell you. I have two 900 series Allis tractors and I have used the oil from Napa, and it seems to work just fine. That's my suggestion.

You can get a replacement for the 821 fluid at any Farm Store. They would have something called Trans-Hydraulic fluid or something similar. If you look at the back, it will list all the specifications. If you want the best synthetic high end stuff, then go here [url][/url]http://www.amsoil.com/storefront/ath.aspx . I have this in my new Sovereign.

This is the stuff I have been using a few years now if the oil in the tranny is brown... [url]http://www.tractorsupply.com/traveller-reg-universal-tractor-trans-hydraulic-fluid-2-gal--0806383[/url] If its red, I use one of the automotive automatic transmission fluids BLT listed above.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
