Here is an article on hydraulic fluid for the N series- http://www.yesterdaystractors.com/ar.../artint251.htm
The original mineral oil is very slow in cold weather. If it were my tractor and the hydraulic system is in good shape I would drain it and refill with a Hydraulic/Transmission oil meeting the Ford M2C134D spec. It will work better in the winter if you plan on using it for snow removal.
