Any ideas on what fluid would work best in a Johnson model 10 loader running off its own pump? Also, how much it would take? I believe it's completely empty. Thank you.

The hydraulic fluid should be suited for the pump, all the other components will go along for the ride.
Hydraulic transmission fluid is inexpensive, easy to get, and covers 99% of pump applications.
I would just dump in the HyTran.

What ever hydraulic oil that is on sell at TSC when I need it , I agree with Clipp about two gallons.
If it is empty, I would buy a five gallon bucket to have enough to flush ,purge and refill system

I believe mine is running ATF. When I purchased it the oil was red so when I put new in it was ATF. That was several years and many hours ago and it is working fine. Seeing as how you live east of me your weather is probably the same. ATF is thinner and faster in the cold weather we experience.
