I recently replaced the steering column and cylinder seals on this 35, since the old leather ones started leaking after about 60 years. The I/T manual says to use a "type A" ATF fluid, I used "type F" since type A is non existent. The type F ATF specifically says it is ok to use for power steering, but the issue is that the oil is still running out the top of the steering column and into the rack/sector gearbox from the valve. I have had this apart and put another new set of seals in it, the shaft is not badly pitted or worn- running out of patience now. My question is, would that oil be the wrong type and breaking these seals down? I am getting sick of an oily tractor. Note: every time I top the reservoir off after it starts whining from being too low, the oil is "foamy". Any help would be greatly appreciated.
