Default oc-12 no hydraulics fluid rcomendation

i have a 76 spryte with an oc-12, the hydraulics have their own tank separate from the differential.
i was wondering what everyone is running, i would like to run Agco brand permatran oil because i run it in all my tractors and the one tractor has wet brakes so in my mind it should be fine but just looking to see what more experienced minds have to say and just see what people have ran whether good or bad
thanks!

Did you find out what is the correct oil to use in the OC-12 rear end? I don't see and replies. Let me know. I was thinking of using tractor r/o oil?

Is it synthetic oil? Also, do I use the same oil in the drop boxes? Or gear oil?

My machine also shares the fluid from center, to side/side. I replaced it last week. What did you use for oil?

I've been running power shift to-4 amzoil in the little bombie I have behind my house it seems to be a lot more responsive since I changed the fluid
