I have two questions.
First what type of oil can I use in my 961 factory power steering pump. Second is why does the power steering fluid is always splashing out of the pump fill cap. It was leaking out of the breather in the cap so I pluged it an now I leaks it's way out from around the cap seal.
Thank You

Easiest cheapest solution is to replace the filter. NH recommends 134 hydraulic oil, but many guys use dextron/mercon here with good results. I prefer the 134. Change the oil, then change the filter, then change the oil again. Cycle the steering each time, or crack the lines at the cylinder and work it manually to drain it. Post back if you are still having problems.

Yes what Rick said.. I use trans fluid my self with no problems.
To answer the question , your return filter or resivoir filter sponge is clogged probably. You may not have to change fluid twice if you are careful cleaning the sludge out of the bowl.
Where is it that cold? I"m in IND. 8 deg this morn.

An extra 3 quarts of oil is a bunch cheaper than a pump or steering valve work.

Get the contaminated oil out; no sense in contaminating a new filter with return oil from the valve/cylinder. Then change the oil and filter at the same time. First you were too cheap to buy two changes worth of oil, now you are complaining about only one filter change. If you don't like my advise, don't follow it. It is not your tractor that is puking oil anyhow.

Thanks Guys
I will change the oil and filter twice just to make sure things are clean and flushed. Cheap insurance. Are the filters available at Ford/New Holland dealer?

Thanks to everyone for their advise.

 Filter help in reply to RJJ, 01-16-2005 16:24:47  
86502183 or AE33538A are the NH part numbers. The former for the earlier style pump with the reservior to the rear of the pump body; sort of a horizontal cylinder shape. The latter is for the later style with the reservior above the pump body; a vertical cylinder shape. The early style is a little spendy. I would call first, they may well have to be ordered in. I don't think either filter was used on anything built after 1964.

Today's Featured Article - Oliver 550 Clutch Overhaul Tips - by Greg Sheppard. I got my 1964 Oliver Model 550 (serial 141-139-519) second-hand and used it for several years before the clutch began to slip. After taking up the pedal linkage several times I saw it was going to take more than that. The engine had been leaking oil at the rear seal and I suspected ... [Read Article]
