The 85W140 will work ok in the transmission, rear end, and final drives. For the hydraulics use any fluid labeled for fluid power and wet brake systems, but do not use ATF. I use a fluid called PowerFluid from the local FS store. You need to drain and refill the hydraulic system. It has two drain plugs: one is in the bottom of the torque housing and is a magnetic plug, the other is in the bottom of the pumps control housing. Some times removal of the drain plug does not allow the fluid to drain. The drain port is covered over with a heavy layer of dirt. Poke thru the dirt and get it to draining. I used a bent wire on mine to scrape as much dirt out as I could. There are also drain plugs for the pto, rear end, and differential. There are no drain plugs for the final drives. The air cleaner cup also needs drained and refilled. I used transmisson fluid in mine. It wets the filter media better and works better in the winter. I have since put on a dry air filter. It does a better job. There is a lot of opinions on which engine oil to use. Personally I use Valvoline 5W30 in the winter and 30W in the summer. Hopes this helps. Maybe someone else can offer something also.

The transmission/rear end has 3 plugs and to drain it completely you need to remove all three and there are two filler plugs on the left side of the tractor and to fill it faster and fully you need to take them both out, fill to the bottom of the plug opening. The drain plugs are 1, in the PTO under the tractor, lowest point, may have water if the shift lever boot isn't good, keep a good one on the shift lever, water can crack the PTO if enough gets in and it freezes, 2 in the sheetmetal plate under the transmission, harder to get to, and finally 3, under the rear end. And be sure not to forget to take the covers off of the final drives and change these, many don't and sometimes the oil here is really BAD. Good luck and enjoy your tractor, it's a good one!
