Hey all, 65 coupe 347... I'm having power steering fluid splur out from the top where the lid is from. Trying to figure out y.. My buddy says it's because it's over heating n the fluid needs to just boil out... He also said the fluid was to water looking like way to clear? The fluid was new from local auto zone n was put in about 3 months ago. He recomended replacing the fluid n adding power steering cooler.. Whatdo u guys think is causing it to slash through the top... Also lid is on tight on the pump

apparently these proper additives are not mandatory additives
Depends on how well you want the seals to hold up. The factory service manual, owner's manual, etc., says the Ford/Thompson-Bendix PS uses (R106) C1AZ-19582-A Rotunda Automatic Transmission Fluid. This was superseded by Type F in 1967. Ford still calls it Type F, and the part number is XT-1-QF.
Absolutely, No question Ford Type F Automatic Transmission Fluid is to be used.
Rear the Dip Stick, Says right on there.
If you have a Thompson/TRW Pump and it is working on Synthetic Fluid, Dexron, New Ford PS Fluid, You have a Pump with a VEIN internal parts. They are being put in Some pump when rebuilt, and will work with the thinner "Power Steering" Fluids.
