    Default Tilt n trim hyraulic fluid! What kind?

    I am just wondering what type of hydraulic fluid is needed for my Suzuki power tilt n trim.

    There are more auto parts stores in my area than boat shops. Is it ok to use an automotive type hydraulic fluid? Some of these fluids have seal reconditioners to improve sealing and stop small leaks.

    I would like to try somthing like this before I have to break down PT & T to replace seals. What do you all recommend?

    Check your owner's manual (you can probably find it online.

    PENNZOIL Marine Lubes is a good start

    Also, contact http://www.***************/webapp/wcs...classNum=50400. They have it, you can order online, and you can call them.
