This is a late model 4000 diesel with the combined power steering reservoir/pump.

Can't find anything in manual that says what the correct fluid level should be.

There is a cap on top of the pump and I can see the filter? screen but no fluid visible.

System works fine, was just doing some maintenance.

also I don't know what the previous owner used for fluid...ATF or power steering fluid
if I can suck/drain some out can I tell, visually, which it might be?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Is this a "late model" 3 cylinder or 4 cylinder 4000?

The 3 cylinder 4000 with the integrated p/s pump/reservoir should be filled to the bottom of the neck that the cap screws onto.

HI Jedolson

1 inch below the cap is what is recommended and the manual will tell you run same oil as what is used in the engine. That said I have run ATF for years and as long as the seal doesn't allow it to leak into the sump no worries otherwise not the best on crank bearings.

Today's Featured Article - What Oil Should I Use? - by Francis Robinson. I keep seein this question pop up over and over again in discussion groups all over the web. As with many things there are often several right answers and a few wrong ones. Some purist I'm sure will disagree to no end with what I will tell you but most of us out here in the real world don't really care do we ? Some of them only bring their noses down out of the air long enough to look down them anyway. If you are like me you are only doing this old tractor stuff because you enjoy it. You ...
