    Hydro oil for dump truck

    So, I bought this older dump truck for the farm. 1989 International 7.3L Navistar diesel non-turbo S1600 with a 16' dump bed. It is in need of some work but for the price I did not mind buying it. I am in the process of replacing the bed with 1/4" steel plating and replacing the ribs under the plates. While i had the bed up yesterday I took a look at the hydro fluid in the PTO driven Hydro pump. It was a milky color, obviously in need of a change. So what type of hydro oil would be good to use for a replacement. I was looking at the Traveler ISO 32 or 46 oil at TSC. Any thoughts on what to use, or is the Traveler oil just as good? Thanks.....

    ew, no don't buy the traveler. That stuff is awful. I would use john deere standard hy-guard (the JDM J20 C high-vis fluid)

    Since it has water in it, run a couple gallons of cheap ATF through it and then flush that and replace with JD hyguard.

    It's a farm truck. Not an everyday user. But if that is what the consensus says then i would do it. Couple things I need to do first is repair the radiator, guy ran a backhoe into it. Last week I went to start it up and would not start. Ended up replacing the fuel shutoff solenoid. So now that it is running I can work on the bed replacement. I only need to replace half of the bed. The guy had a chemical tank on the back half of the truck, which rotted the back half of the bed out. Once I get that replaced and the radiator fixed I will start using it. But I figured I would do some maintenance on it while doing this. I need to do some fiberglass repair to the front. so it is a work in progress.

    Hmmm, panhandle...Oklahoma or Florida? Really no difference though, both a warm climate. I'd start with John's recommendation and flush the system with a cheap oil to get the water out. Since you're in a warm climate and your truck is approaching 30 years, I'd use an ISO 46 oil. Probably half the price of HyGuard and available at almost any auto parts store. I've never looked at the specs for HyGuard, but after using/pouring it, I'd say it's closer to an ISO 32...thicker oil means fewer leaks on the older truck. Bob

    Is that for the low-vis or high-viscosity hy-guard?

    For a dump truck, I’d have no problem useing the Traveler or whatever Walmart sells, especially if you need to do a few flushes to clean things out.
