He is asking about his power steering... please reread the post.

And... there is 54 years of proof that the original spec is just fine for the power steering, the transmission, the rear end, for wet brakes, for dry brakes, the blinker fluid reservoir, etc...etc.. etc..

Which sumps? Rear axle/hydraulic sump on a 3 cylinder 4000 has both wet brakes and a wet clutch pack for the PTO.

You really dont need 134D for power steering in a 4400.
And almost any power steering fluid you can buy,, Automatic Transmission fluid, or tractor rated hydraulic fluid will work fine. There are NO wet brakes, or wet clutches, and there is 54 years of proof that the regular fluid worked just fine.
Did I say they have been using the regular fluids for 54 years with no failures attributed to this fluid in the 4000 series tractors.

Leave the synthetic blinker fluid to the neysayers.

The original spec was M2C41 or M2C41A.

Has been superceded with 134D

FNH M2C-134A/D or one that "exceeds" this spec.
