    Re: oil for bennet trim tabs

    Page 6 of the Bennett Trim Tab Owners Manual say to use any type of ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid).

    You may want to download and read the manual. http://www.bennetttrimtabs.com/ownman.pdf

    Re: oil for bennet trim tabs

    The bennett tabs in my 420 specify Automatic Transmission Fluid. Do not let some jackass at West Marine sell you trim lube like the I/O dudes use.. It is a real pain to flush and refill the system.
