Motor oil is all I use. It's also recommended by Pro Hopper and Showtime. Hydraulic fluid works fine as well but is more pricey. And in desperate times when I was stuck in the middle of nowhere I used power steering fluid. Worked just fine.Originally posted by suitcase@Aug 4 2005, 10:21 AM
hi guys what fluid do you use? reason is im useing a hydraulic fluid.but i was just looking through the tech section on the pro hopper site and it sez to use motor oil.is this right.???????? :0 :0
I plumbed my setup this time at like 4 am, grabbed some 30 wt oil from the gas station. :dunno: works fine, and I guess prohopper reccomends it, so I don't see what the big deal is. I'm not in a hurry to change it out, I could care less as long as it works. I realise that's what hydraulic oil is meant for, but I don't get why people are so uptight about it, I've seen it in like a dozen signatures on here.Originally posted by schmidt64@Aug 8 2005, 12:46 AM~3559504
you all can afford $2000 hydro setups but cheap out on $20 worth of the proper oil?
