Okay, sorry about that. I'm not real familiar with this tractor, and use it only on occasion. The loader I'm told, runs off of the rear end hydraulic reservoir. We had a new pump installed shortly before things went "haywire". So, are you guys saying that the disappearing engine oil is going into that reservoir? If so, we'll try what was suggested: drain down to 'level plug', add certain amount of engine oil, then check to see if the rear reservoir is over filled. Am I correct on this? Please be patient with a "not familiar with Ford 3000 operator"! I really appreciate your advice & will heed it. BTW, will an operator's manual cover the problem that we're going through?

I think you have the general idea - check if that engine oil is going to the rear reservoir. I don't think the oper manual will cover this, but a repair manual will. They can be had as a download for $10-15.

if it is loosing lots of oil


if it is not visibly leaking, showing signs of a leak or burning it.

then the next place i'd look is the rear end..
