|gtkeith said: (quoted from post at 08:43:56 09/02/13) Thanks for the information I am going to change all the fluids like you suggested how much 134D will I need to fill all three and where are the fill plugs located at the tractor is a 1964 ford 4000 thanks again for the information and why are 2 sides on the hydro dipstick marked hopefully the 3 point hitch will work after this if not is the pump hard to rebuild|
You need a little over 7 gallons, so buy 2-5 gallon buckets. Check the label to make sure it meets Ford spec M2C134D spec. TSC Traveller brand does. Rural King has a version also. UTF is not the same as "hydraulic" fluid.
The dipstick only measures the oil in the center section, which is the hydraulic sump. There are markings on both sides to measure the oil level in the front pedestal on a row crop tractor. Use the side marked for hydraulics.
There is a pipe plug on the rear about at the level of the PTO to check the fill level. If you are at the rear of the tractor looking forward it is on the left side of the rear end. It has a square head.
The trans level plug is on the right side of the tractor (when facing forward) just above the running board. This plug has a hex head on it. It is near the rear of the trans. Do not loosen any bolts on the trans, you will be able to tell it is a plug upon close inspection.
The fill plugs for each section are big hex headed caps. One on the trans, one just under the seat and one on top the rear.
You didn't say what transmission you had. What I described is for a manual transmission, NOT a Select-O-Speed.
Picking up an owners manual for this site or others would be well worth your money also. This post was edited by cbrown9064 at 07:00:22 09/02/13.
