This info is in my article on 8N hydraulic repair on a budget but here goes anyway.Either one of these products will work fine. TSC Traveller brand is probably the cheapest, and many of us have been using it for years. By your recent posts can we assume you have the top cover off now? Was the control arm bent when you inspected the system? Was it connected correctly as well? Seems you had issues with the draft control before. Arm may have gotten bent when someone was assembling the cover before -it can't get bent in normal use. Oil needs to be flushed and changed if color is murky brown or whitish. Either or means the system is contaminated with water. They don't mix and water will freeze and possibly cause major hiccups to the system. You don't need a 'tractor place' to buy oil. Plain SAE-90 API GL-1 gear oil works fine and also UTF as well -most auto parts stores carry it. Avoid that 303 stuff.
