i like a 15w40 C/S rated oil for my engines.. some people run 10w30 in the gassers. red tigers usually have preety good oil pressure even when old and abused. your call.

for the hyds, trans, diffy sumps. a utf Meeting M2C134 spec. most house brands will meet this.

You COULD go with a 80w90 gear oil inthe trans and diffy, and utf inthe hyds.. but if the pto inter sump seal is leaky as many are.. you will get mic from hyds to rear... plus many find it easier to buy 1 pail of oil, and not piece it together with pails and jugs..e tc.

that plain jane utf will be fine in the loader seperate sump hyds too.

Sounder, Bink is my B-I-L and a first time tractor owner. I helped him find this unit. It is a light industrial with NO hydraulics other than the external hydraulics that power the loader. In other words, the seat sits on an empty sump. The loader fluid is in a separate tank mounted behind the seat. No 3ph or PTO on this one.

So, in this case I don't think it would matter much if he wanted to put 80W-90 gear oil in the trans and diffy since I assume the pto hole between the sumps is blocked off somehow. Plus if any did leak into that empty cavern, it wouldn't hurt anything.

i very much doubt the pto hole is blocked. I believe it will simply make it a common sump... and as you surmise.. with no hyds onboard. gear oil is fine.
