I have a IR p175wd 1980's and am wondering what type of oil the compressor takes it is rotary screw I looked everywhere but found no definitive answer, the fella I bought the compressor from said he used ATF is that a common practice? Found at IR website performance 500 oil but not sure if that is right as I cannot find litature about the compressor any help would be greatly appreciated.

Inside door of mine says to use ATF

(In case you aren't sure ATF stands for Automatic Transmission Fluid - Moderator)
