    I'd guess at 80/90 for both, but it may just be 140s. If you're stuck, try these guys for info, they've always been good for advice with me:

    Ain't got a Ford manual to hand, or I'd have been more helpful earlier, but for an A40 it lists 80 or 90 for the steering box and idler, except very early models use 140s. Correct level for boxes is usually flush with bottom of filler cap. From memory I just shoved 80s in the Shedster box, cos it's all I'd have had to hand anyway, and it ain't steered off the road yet....

    Ford manual says 80 winter 90 summer for my early 3 speed. I used 80/90 in it and the steering box.
