    Default Tilt & Trim fluid replacement - what to use, any special instructions?

    My electric tilt and trim motor for a 1900 70hp Johnson Tracker engine took a dump which means my entire tilt and trim assembly had to be removed from the boat. Since I have the unit off the boat, I am considering replacing the tilt and trim hydraulic fluid.

    Does anyone know what is the correct fluid to replace with?
    Is there special instructions on how to replace this fluid?

    Thanks

    Happy Holiday Weekend!

    The recommended fluid should be OMC/BRP Power Trim/Tilt and Power Steering Fluid. GM Dextron II (ATF) is a suggested alternative.

    Didn't know they made 70 hp engines back in 1900. Hmmm. 10W-30 or 10W-40 can be used too, right?
