HyTran is a good choice for hydraulic fluid in the 300. If the 300 is a standard 4 speed, the capacity listed is 14 quarts. If the tractor has a triple range (12 speed) the capacity is listed at 12 quarts. Drain plug is below the shifter at the aft segment of the torque tube. Fill plug/dipstick is on the triple range top-plate.
The transmission/differential holds 13 quarts, and the operators manual calls for gear lube. I use 80w90. The drain plug is in the rear on the right side of the differential, adjacent to the front attach point for the drawbar. Fill plug/dipstick is under the seat just aft of the main shifter plate.
Others here use hytran in the transmission/differential as well. In my opinion, these old tractors leak bad enough that using a lighter weight oil only compounds the problem, so I stick with the manufacturers recommendation. From a lubrication standpoint, I suspect either product is fine.
