Do you have a desalinator brand watermaker- is it the 220 version?
What is your hull number is it a Kimberlite SM 376?

Thank you Vito and Bill.
We postponed our departure by one day to get the oil and missed half our sailing window! For anyone else who may have a watermaker with a CAT high pressure pump, what you need is:
CAT Pumps Crankcase Oil ISO 68, petroleum based, hydraulic oil.
21 oz. (0.62 liter) $12.95 at Watermakers Inc. of Ft. Lauderdale
Funnily enough, the Amel manual on board wants 0.75 liter oil changes on this pump!
Or, per e-mail received from the CAT factory yesterday:
"We do have our own Cat oil that can be found at Northern Tool and Home Depot.
But if not available to you.
It is a non detergent 30W Hydraulic oil, or a ISO 68"
And then we desalinated over 300 liters today. This thing is fast.
At anchor, Lake Worth, La Florida.
