hmmm i am confused ?


what does it really matter ???

i use engine oil or tranny fluid in mine almost always, and i have owned a billlion different vehicles makes models years mainly 60s through 80s car trucks buses duallies a limo, a right hand drive scout, 68 c-10 chevy panel delivery, you name it


depending on if there are leaks or not, or lots of wear or not,.

engine oil makes for a real slick nice easy awesome steering

love it

my 91 s-10 will be getting oil soon when i replace the steering box

since it is 195k miles and very worn but working fine still


good luck

They used ATF for many, many years. ATF is alot less prone to foaming, will remain more stable than engine oil.

Yes, use ATF. ATF has been called the most engineered lubricant in the world.
