What kind of power steering fluid do you recommend?

It's the same as the ATF you use in the auto gearbox. I use Smith & Allen ATF Ford Type F (suitable for BW type 35's) which you can get on Ebay or anything similar at a good motor factors. There are different PAS fluids as you probably know, but this is the correct oil for our Triumphs, for both the PAS and auto boxes.
Incidentally, Smith and Allen are an independent oil supplier and have good reviews on other classic car forums. I have previously used their ATF Type F auto transmission oil, and their Hypoy 90 gearoil in my Triumphs with no issues whatsoever.
