Running ISO 32 in a powerglide???

My machinist was telling me about running ISO 32 hydraulic oil in his powerglide. Anyone do this and have success with it? What are the advantages of doing it?

Lots of racers use Hydrauilc fluid in their Trans. It's cheaper. Most recommend a quart or 2 of regular Trans fluid to add some tint to it for level checking and finding leaks.

The main problem with use of hydraulic oil used in equipment is there are no proper additives to control moisture and other related stuff inside the trans.

In a race only application , this is not much of a problem since the service life of a race trans is shorter. As an eggzample in a drag race application the trans oil should be changed every 20 - 30 passes. A trans brake builds heat very rapidly , this is hard on the oil.

If you run a high horse power car ( over 1,000 hp) the trans oil should be changed after each race weekend , the pan dropped and look for debris
