Pentosin or ATf in 82/83 ur-q

Did any ur-q's have the Pentosin systems.  Only 85's?  When was the change
made??  Would I be correct to assume my Feb 82' build date ur-q has ATF???
Is this the same Dextron III ATF that the 4kq and others use for the Power
Steering Fluid???  If so has anyone seen better longevity by using say the
Mobil 1 Synthetic ATF???  It supposedly foams less and may perform better
around seals.  Who knows.    Definately not me.  
	Is that enought questions.  Oh wait, I jsut dosconnected the pump
in it as it was int he way of my engine removal.  RED fluid came out.  I
assume that means its ATF.  What color is Pentosin???  Is it clear???
Look like Brake Fluid, Blue, Green, what.  Finally, is it bad to keep my
pump dry for a bit or should I re-connect and fill resivoir to keep seals
wet untill new motor goes in in the spring???  Or should I jsut pull the
pump and keep it sealed in my garage???
	So RECAP...
