Well Dan, I recently had to replace the convertible top pump and motor assembly in my 300H covertible from Hydro Electric in Florida. The original had packed it in last summer while attending a car show where it couldn’t move the top up or down properly unless we gave it some manual assistance. I was expecting to get some kind of warranty from them but they said that it was too old and wouldn’t cover it! I told them that I had purchased the assembly years before restoring the car but they didn’t buy that.
Now getting to what oil to use, I prefer using power steering fluid as it is colorless and less likely to stain anything if you should develop a leak in the system. The replacement pump and motor received from them was already filed with automatic tranny fluid (the red stuff). Some of the early cars used power brake fluid which would be a disaster if a leak should occur.
Why would you want to replace the oil in the system in your 66 300? I could see doing so if it looks like it’s dirty or?
Cheers from Fern with silver/lilac 300H convertible located in SE BC
