Check out my website - there is a specs page there as well as a list of oils for various sections of the tractor. The oil you mention is for transmission and hydraulics and is generally a 20w non-detergent oil.

Bad news is low oil usually doesn't do anything for getting it in gear if it's "grinding". If it's just hard to shift then the oil may help - and a squirt or two of grease on the clutch release bearing (the alemite is seen looking in the hole on the bottom of the torque tube between the engien and the tranny).

Yep. My 1949 B needs a clutch too. It's not hard to do - splitting a B doesn't take much, just the proper stands/chains for safety and time. The clutch/pressure plate/release bearing will probably run around $200 to $250 for the parts, maybe less depending on where you get them. Plus labor ...

Today's Featured Article - Third Brush Generators - by Chris Pratt. While I love straightening sheet metal, cleaning, and painting old tractors, I use every excuse to avoid working on the on the electrics. I find the whole process sheer mystery. I have picked up and attempted to read every auto and farm electrics book with no improvement in the situation. They all seem to start with a chapter entitled "Theory of Electricity". After a few paragraphs I usually close the book and go back to banging out dents. A good friend and I were recently discussing our tractor electrical systems when he stated "I figure it all comes back to applying Ohms Law". At this point ... [Read Article]
