Originally they used Type A, but that's been long discontinued, so Dexron (which has now advanced to Dexron IV) should be used.

 I use Dexron 3 with success in my cylinders.

I add some dexron in the system but it dosnt mix with the original fluid...so i may remove the entire original fluid and replace it with dexron
