420U Hydraulic Oil Capacity?

It"s a "57 with Henry backhoe and loader.

The "tank" is one of the vertical pillars (leaking) that the FEL mounts to. It wouldn"t be hard to figure out how much it would take to fill that pillar, but I have no way of knowing how much the entire system would hold.

My I&T manual is for the 420 only.

Thanks!

I would get 5 gallons of straight 30wt in two 2 1/2 gallon jugs. Pour in until oil runs out your "full level" plug. Not had one with a loader (that stayed on), so not really sure of exact amount. But if it leaks and your not planning on welding the cracks, you're gonna need more oil eventually.

Good plan.

I tried welding the leaks. They're pinholes.
Not structural rust as far as I can see.
I went after them with a stick welder and was never able to find and close them all.

I think I'll try JB Weld next. That spray rubber stuff worked great FOR A WHILE. The heat probably made it leak.

If I have to, I'll just add a tank and forget about the whole mess.

I got the machine with all kinds of leaks and have since replaced most hoses and I'm working on rebuilding one cylinder at a time (on the backhoe).

The ultimate goal is to have it dry.

I have a love/hate relationship with this machine (it seems to feel the same way) and I can't afford to replace it.

At this point, I plan to keep it and eventually get an 8N or something cheap with a 3-point to do other stuff.

Besides, trying to steer this machine is keeping me in shape!

Straight 30 eh? I hadn't heard that before.

Thanks again!
