Working on what we believe is a 48 wd45, wondering what fluid the rear end takes and also if it is the same fluid as the hydraulic system on it? it has the factory 2 point I think is what they call it. also how much fluid would it hold. Thanks for any and all replies. Bob

The WD45 did not come out till the 50s. If the engine has a bolt on plate on the right side it is a WD engine and if the shiftier is straight that also says WD. As for fluids the UTF will work just fine but back in the day the rear would have had 85W-90 and the hyds hyd fluid or 20W oil. Serial number is on the left rear end housing just below the brake cover

Mine has (since New) ...85-140 in Diff. 90 wt in trans. 10-30 wt engine oil..

NOTE: NEVER allow the tractor get too low of oil in the Hydraulics reservoir , the seal at the front will be ruined and will leak until you repair it..!! If it leaks there, you will know what happened..!

Today's Featured Article - Bad Vibes - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the strangest ways to communicate with our tractor is to ask it how it feels. "Ask it how it feels," you say? Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
