    Yeah, that ^^^.

    Kendall HYKEN hydraulic oil (good P/S fluid) is a 10W dino oil with a bit more anti-foam additive. Works in logsplitters, too.

    , Don't sweat it. Buy a quart of a P/S fluid that says "Meets GM specs" or whatever, use the turkey baster and over the course of a month suck out and replace the P/S fluid 8 ounces at a time. Rags and care.

    Ranger is right on with this one. Transmission fluid is also hydraulic fluid. It is non foaming and has worked well in steering systems since they were introduced in passenger cars. A lot cheaper too. I've dumped 10w motor oil in a power steering pump with no reprecusions. Drive out in the grass and turn your wheels lock to lock a few times to remove any air, you don't need to jack up. When you hit the end keep pressure on the wheel a couple seconds at each end.
