Howdy folks

I am building an XG Ute with a Barra (how original eh?)

Basically I’ve had mixed opinions from google about power steering fluid so hopefully someone can tell me for sure the correct type for these Barras. I am more of a 4x4 bloke (diesel mechanic) which have all usually used your average power steering fluid or atf dex 3.

What’s the go?

As far as im aware you need proper power steering fluid in BA. I use the genuine s**t.
E series you can get away with auto fluid.
