fluid for my Chevy's Western plow pump

I started to test my re-designed homemade plow brackets on my '77 Chevy with a 4 inch lift yesterday. Well, when I was checking operation of the pump, the cable for the power angle busted and when I tore it apart, I lost all the fluid and broke the gaskets. So I had to order a new cable for it and a complete seal kit from mill supply (the gasket that broke was the paper-thin gasket for the valve and the gasket for the cover; plus I noticed that the lift cylinder was leaking.) I've had this plow on my truck for 4 years, and every year some gasket or expensive hard-to-find piece has busted. I think it had to do with the truck being on a '77 Ford..ha ha. (that's why I had to make my own truck brackets from scratch). Oh well, I'd say this is a pretty aged plow, so I thought I might as well put new gaskets in it.

The thing I need to ask is what kind of fluid do you put in it? It has the one piece electric-motor/tank/valves/lift cylinder thing (I guess you call it a 'Power Pack')that Western made. I thought it takes ATF, but am not sure and don't want to put the wrong stuff in it with all new gaskets.

Thanks for your help and time.
