the spec 50 years ago was 20 wt engine oil. today there are much better oils. go to Wal Mart or the local Farm Center and buy a 2-1/2 gallon container of trans-hydraulic fluid. It is basically 20 wt oil, but is especially formaulated to be anti-foaming and have water dispersants. It is much better for transmissions and hydraulic systems. You are right, the transmission, rear axle and pto- hydraulic pump housing use the same oil. It is filled by your left foot into the transmission cavity thru a 1 inch pipe plug. Holds about 7-8 quarts. There are three drain plugs on the bottom, 1/2 inch pipe plugs on each cavityy. Drain all three. If the oil is white or milky looking, it has rain water inside, usually thru the trnasmission shift boot. Bryan is right, this is all goo info, but probably has nothing to do with the shifting, unless the oil it crudy and lots of water in it. Also a good idea to pull the sheetmetal pans off the bottom of each final drive (inside the rear wheel) and clean out and refill thru the 1/2 inch pipe plug. Use 80-90 wt gear lube. You can get a book at www.binderbook.com, or order theu Kings. They only cost $10.00
