My 85 Black Max called for ATF. I think Mecron but do not recall for sure. I have seen Merc T&T fluid at Wal Mart. I have my Optimax manual on my computer I will check and see what it states. Just checked it says use Mercury power trim and steering fluid if not available use ATF

If you are low on fluid then you’d have a leak. Otherwise you’d not be low.

yep, unless it was under filled to begin with. Remember to tilt all the way up before unscrewing the cap.
