Hydraulic Steering oil?

I had to remove my hydraulic steering helm while doing some maintenance and I need some oil to refill it.

Does anyone know where to buy it, according to the website it needs to be either LS or ISO 22 oil.

The steering system is a LS Pompes, I have found this website if that helps:

LS France - LECOMBLE & SCHMITT official web site - hydraulic steering systems for boat (hydraulic pump, hydraulic cylinder) : FRONT MOUNTED FOR OUTBOARD MOTORS UP TO 75 H.P.

The oil I removed was dark red.

Any help would be very much appreciated

Seastar/Baystar use a fairly generic hydraulic oil; though the spec is for aviation grade stuff. Pretty much anything that's liquid (and non-flammable for safety) can be used; they apparently spec it high so that water contamination is kept to a minimum, which helps avoid corrosion of internal parts.

ATF works fine if you can't get hydraulic fluid (though it's a tad thicker and increase the steering effort just a bit.)

Thanks, I didn't get chance to phone black dog today but after some more searching on the web tonight I found other documents saying that LS recommend Dexron ii which is an ATF.

It looks like halfords stock an equivalent to dexron ii, so will that be ok?
