Yes, any non-detergent, non-foaming oil should be OK to use.

can someone else tell me of other brand of motor oil that makes non detergent cause this was the only one.
Don't hate me (cause most do), but ATF-3 is actually a non-detergent hydraulic fluid. I've been using it since '91.

Ok thanks homie I will keep that tranmission oil in my non detergent list. Why would I hate someone that knows more than me on juice. ;)

atf - 3 can be found at any autoparts store.

these is better than non-detergent 30/40 motor oil because atf-3 will not foam as much, or not at all.

The detergents can cause the fluid to foam. Foaming through a pump head is a form of cavitation (pump trying to move air instead of fluid). This cavitation damages pump heads.

10-30 (I'm assuming you mean 10W-30) isn't good because most (if not all) of the "W" motor oils contain detergents and additives to keep the oil from thinning out as much when it gets hot.

DO NOT use regular transmission fluids. They all contain detergents and additives and they're not good for pump heads.

Make sure it's ATF-3. It doesn't contain additives.

And to answer the other question: There's an unwritten rule to "hate" on anyone that uses tranny fluid. That's because those people don't know there's a major difference between tranny fluid and ATF.

What does detergents do to your pumps cause some of my friends put any kind of motor oil as long is 10-30.
most people who use motor oil don't use a 10-30

they use a straight 30 or even 40 non-detergent, Chalet has these.

atf oil has no detergents, inhibitors or additives, your forklift hyrdro fluids are based on atf chemistry, but they vary in viscosities.

atf-3 costs more but its better in the long wrong because its superior lubricator and keeps your hydros seals wet.

atf-3 is also better because when you hit your hydros, there's a dry period, with 30 oil, it takes awhile to move and lubricate critical parts with heavy friction.

atf gets through easier.

i would suggest you pm the homie bouncing 89 mercury who posted here earlier for some more info.

The best stuff I have ever used is R&O anti-wear hydraulic oil. Walmart carries a 2gallon jug. Napa auto carries it. Any idustrial, tractor ,hydraulic supply store will have some type of anti-wear oil made for our type of pumps. The industrial places usually have it in 5 gallon buckets. Its better to run real hydro oil :biggrin:
