Hydrolift Fluid

Recommended Posts

aspeltz1

Anyone know what fluid should be in the B series hydrolift? Manual says MS grade IOW30. Is that supposed to be 10W30? What came out was red like hydraulic fluid or ATF.

If not mistaken, the stickers say straight 30, but I don't have one to look at anymore.

Tweeked my interest enough to check the 3 PDFs i have on file, two round tanks, and one square...All three have this fill instruction

This printed text is identical in all 3 PDFs (TPs).The particular one shown is from the "square tank lift", dated 2/11/65, and heavily hand noted with comments, and part# changes.I guess SAE 10W-30 (non foaming) it is!
