Grade of oil used in Ford Power steering

I know this may sound stupid but what grade of oil do people use in their power steering on for 1000 series tractors , I was told to use ATF but not sure if this right as the power steering ram leaks as Ford only gives their oil specs in the owners manual any info would be great.

Ford 6410 tractor engine

Does anyone have a Operators manual on a Ford 6410 that explains how you bleed the fuel system , bearing in mind that it is fitted with a Lucas CAV DPS fuel pump that has no bleed screw . thanks

Re: 73 ford 2000

That whole range of tractors after 1968 were bulletproof with few faults.
