Note!!! Use only John Deere Low Viscosity Hydrostaic Oil only, unless you what to replace the hydrostat and gears in the transmission,If you had the old red oil in it you will have to adjust the neutrail.

My 317 book says "F" also. Means Ford I think. But did'nt they change to some other code. Ford I mean. I don't see why you could'nt just use hydrolic oil like in the big ones . Noticed a leak in one of my disconnects and was thinking what to buy if I needed to add. Oh well something to yak about Yellowdog.

As strange as it may sound, type F ATF is what was specified for those tractors.
