I haven’t heard of HD68 being used, will look into it. I don’t think viscosity will matter too much, I wonder what the boiling point is compared with ATF?

Boiling point? if you are worried about that then you'll have other problems, like the car on fire lol

You want thin fluid, as the viscosity is is related to heat generation. thicker the oil, the more it resists flow and because hydraulic systems force the fluid regardless, the extra energy needed directly goes to generating heat in the fluid.

my thoughts are the boiling point shouldn't be an issue .... isn't the system is not working properly to be getting that point in the first place?

Thanks for posting :thumbup: that clarifies heaps. Looks to me that the HD68 will be going in.

I use a elevtric pump in my race cars, I think from a barina. Pumps into the commodore rack and it has a constant flow/pressure rate regardless of engine revs, works really well, that and I hate engine fires.

cheers
