What is the recommended fluid and viscoity for use in vintage industrial tractor hydraulics i.e. 1940's-1950's Hough loader, Ford 9N loader, Meili-Blumberg, Case DI shovel loader, Case 411 front loader.
I have some say 30 SAE but have yet to see anything in a manual about what fluid to use in the hydraulics.
Thanks, dave

Ok Dave , I guess I'll have to answer your question since nobody here has had any experience with the hydraulics on vintage tractors.
1st off manufactures vary from SAE 10 to 30 engine oil back in those days. In winter ( below 32) one would drain 2-3 gallons out and add kerosine to thin out the viscosity. Hough Loaders calls for SAE 10w in 1950.
Thanks for writting in Dave, I hope that helps answer your question.
