Trim/tilt hydraulic fluid question - which type to use?

Need to replace the hydraulic fluid in the trim and tilt system for a 1980's Mariner 200hp 2-stroke and was wondering what kind of fluid is required? To my knowledge, the trim/tilt unit is the standard unit supplied with the outboard.

Any thoughts?

Cheers.

P.S - yes, it's definitely seen better days!!

Standard ATF will do.

Drain out the current stuff and replace with new ATF. You can buy it cheaply at any Pirtek depot

Thanks for that guys.

Jizm, any chance of the details in writing? I can't tell from the size of the pic exactly what that stuff is.

Cheers.

While I think of it, will I be able to use ATF for the steering fluid as well??! Or does that require something more specific?

ATF will work fine for steering, but may increase effort a bit. It's a bit thicker than the normal hydraulic fluid most manufacturers specify.

How do you get the fluid in to the tilt & trim it looks like a none return valve on mine.
