    Default type of hydrualic fluid to use in jack plate?

    Is there any special type of fluid to use in the reservoir of the hydraulic jackplate? When i bought this boat, there were no instructions on the jackplate and i have never had a boat with one on before. Thanks for the info,Steve

    ATF is a suitable fluid, or you Could use 10# hyd. jack oil.... I use ATF, you can find it Anywhere...
