bwanna2016-

According to page 109 of the 2008 Monarch owner's manual (link here), the correct fluid is Dexron 3 Mercon ATF Hydraulic Fluid.

The same recommendation is on page 112 of the 2008 HR Admiral owner's manual. The Monarch and Admiral are "twins."

What is your hydraulic system? HWH? If yes, you can add regular transmission fluid. To be sure it should be annotated in your owner's manual.

If you have HWH jacks, this is what you need.

l1v3fr33ord1- thanks again. never thought to look in the manual. I was reading in my leveling systems manual and there was no mention on fluid replacement
