So far I read, studied, and still had doubts about the oils I paid too much for, and ended up finding an excuse to replace them with something I felt more comfortable with.
Hey, in reality? I think the old timers that taught me how to be an unprofessional hack were right. ANY oil is better than no oil. A wrong oil is better than no oil.
And I will bet most of our tractors would out live most of us even if filled with the wrong oil!
Now, in an attempt to be more professional, I will say that there is a leader out there to pay heed to. John UK has been working on fergies since Harry was alive, so if there is a guru of grey, it's him.
According to John and other Britons(poms), the UK fergie owners are happy with the way a 10W30 engine oil deals with the bronze bushings and hydraulic parts in the transmission. So that is fine with me. When I farmed with AC's and old cars and trucks, I bought #30 in bulk, and used it in everthing...'cause I was too poor to do anything else. Now... still just as broke, with even more engines and 'arsends' to maintain, I was comfortable with JohnUK and his friend's findings on 10W30.... but I want a W40 for my other cars and trucks in our much hotter summer. So I bought a small drum of 10W40, and have my eyes open for a 50 gallon source. If you can find it at a TSC in 5 gallons- hey you need 2 jugs just to fill the tranny, so you got hardly enough left to change the motor oil, no waste of over a hundred bucks there. I would rather buy at autozone, but they rarely stock even one jug of what I want. Any smaller containers is no money savings at all. So go window shopping!
