Cool Re: Which PS fluid

Quote:
FA - FORD AUTOMATIC and POWER STEERING FLUID - PART NO. C1AZ 19582-A, C, D
FORD OIL AND LUBRICATION GUIDE - VOL 69-ST-15

(A-B-C-D) were TYPE A SUFFIX A FORD SPECIFIC blend progression in 1959-1960 - All were TYPE A)

In 1959, FORD blended it's own version of GM TYPE A SUFFIX A. I think it was called FA (I never saw that description) to differentiate it from GM TYPE A - SUFFIX A. Final version was D for the 1961 model run.

There was also an FA released in 1980 or thereabouts for the C5. It was backwards compatible with TYPE F but did not replace it as you can still buy it from FORD today.

EDIT -

The above statements are not correct. Please ignore. Source not verified.

I see FA on independent refiners packaging (and didn't pay any attention to it) but never saw it on FORD packaging.

While researching this, I came across some of the strangest stories and claims imaginable.

I hate 'OL WIVES TALES ... They just keep on going ...
