I have that same I&T manual showing the 26ml. I also have a copy of original Yanmar repair manuals for the ym220/226 and one for the ym276. On steering gear repair pages in both manuals it states to fill the steering gear box with multi-purpose grease. Capacity is .06 gallons (0.24liters) which translates real close to one cup. One cup equals 16 tablespoons.

Confused yet? I know other places say to use 90 weight gear oil and I am not stating which is correct. Nor the quantity. If it were mine I think I would fill it full of 90 weight gear oil if I was satisfied all seals were good. If I doubted my seals I might fill it with multipurpose grease. I would imagine it would run a long time on either. I doubt you can get to much in it.

Yep, fill with 90-140w til it runs out the fill hole. If leaking seals add Lucas Power Steering Sealer. You can't add too much.

And where the steering shaft comes out of the dash, make sure the black rubber collar prevents water from entering and running down the shaft.
