Deere calls for Type F in the service manual or you can use Hy-guard low vis.  I am running Type F in my 120 and it had Type F in it when I got it.  I would get the Hy-guard from Deere if I did the swap.  What color is the fluid in it now?

Under the seat there is a knob that you turn counterclockwise to engage the Hydro. Turn clockwise to freewheel. It must be turned it completely to the stop for the Hydro to work.
