Yes sir.The initial Thompson/Trw was a slipper style camer pack. It without doubt required the thicker automatically Trans liquid (Type F) to compact the liquid to the forced pressures.Then come the Saginaw "VANE" Pumps which would run on the thinner/Less Vescosity Fluids.So bottom line--If to run a Ford Thompson, or TRW (Same Pump) you must use kind F automatic Trans Fluid.The Auto Parts big Time, High dissension "Power Steering Fluid" will certainly burn up a Thompson Pump.Might too put water in that or--Wizz in it.
Be careful. I"ve had actually the endure of the auto parts respond to person informing me ATF means Automatic Trans form F. Certain they supposed well, probably not familiar with 20 year and also older Fords. Some will say type F is automatically transmission liquid not strength steering fluid.If you have actually a Mustang or various other old Ford convertible the power height pump likewise uses kind F.

CRAP. Don"t understand what ns was thinking yet never supposed DOT 3/4 fluid. Meant to say strength steering fluid, ns know type F was provided originally and I can gain it at my local advance Auto. Simply wondered around a clean mechanism using strength steering fluid instead and also thought it great to check. Mine is a Thompson pump and I obviously don"t know enough about the physics of the pump. I beg your pardon is why i seek and take the advice of girlfriend experts. Thaks again.
