This is from an oil info site.
"It used to be so simple. There was Type A or Type F. If your automatic transmission needed oil, you only had two to choose from. Many Fords used Type F transmission oil while Type A was used in everything else. Today, there are several types of oil specified for automatic transmissions. Using the wrong one can cause shifting problems or even damage your transmission. Here are the more common automotive transmission oils used today.
Dexron Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) is probably the most common oil found on the parts shelves today. It used to be called Type A transmission oil but as improvements were made to the oil, the name was changed to Dexron. Many types of Dexron oil have been used over the years. The original Dexron oil became Dexron II, which developed into Dexron IIE in the early 1990′s. Dexron IIE used extra additives that helped clean computer-controlled shift solenoids and pressure control solenoids inside the transmission. After only a short time, Dexron IIE became Dexron III, which is still the current Dexron designation."

Also anyone know the weight of this machine
I'm sure that info is in the operators manual. If you haven't already downloaded it, it's in the manuals section.

As for reverse, I know that the cam limits the travel of the actuating lever in reverse, so you won't see the same speed in reverse as in forward, but you should still get up pretty good speed.

Thanks for letting us know. I've seen more than one thread simply end, and you wonder which of the solutions suggested worked.
Thank you for the info she was low on fluid and now works well in forward shes pretty weak in reverse... is that common?

The piece that looks like a mini screen door closer, needed cleaned and then re lubed. I didn't take it apart, just hosed out everything I could with compressed air, brake cleaner, compressed air again and then some 10 wt oil. Made a big difference.
Both of my parts units have extra springs on that tensioner, so it must've been at least a semi common problem on some.
