After reading the thread about the '48 C with locked gears, I think I might be able to take care of that problem on my B. But what I do need to know is this:
My B is in need of attention and I don't know this list of things:
1. What type of oil/grease goes where?
2. What oils/lubricants should be changed and what intervals?
3. Where do the oils/lubricants get drained from?
4. Where do the oils/lubricants get filled at?

I would appreciate any help you all could give me. Best Regards,
Sheldon S.

the transmission, rear bevel gear and pto- hydraulic pump housing all use the same oil. they area all connected inside. There are 3 1/2 inch pipe plugs under neith. one under thr transmission, one under the steering, one under the pto. holds about 2 gallons total, most in the front. drain all three then put trans-hydraulic fluid in. you can get a 2.5 gallon jug from WalMart or the Farm Store for $10. next there is a final drive gear box on each side of the transmission that drops down and sets inside the rear wheels. there is a sheetmetal pan with about a dozen bolts holding them on. there is a 1/2 inch pipe pllug to fill , but no drain. yo need to take the pans off, clean out the goo and reinstall. you will probably tear the cork gasket. use RTV or go to Auto Zone and get some new gasket material, i like to use both. Then fill each case with 90 wt gear lube. about a quart in each. last is the motor, which i like to use 10W 30 motor oil, just like my ford truck. some will say not to use a detergnet oil in an old motor. i would change the oil, run 8 hours and change it again (only cost $5) look at the old oil and see what you are getting out (crud?) refill and forget it. you should change the motor oil once a year. the trans-hydraulic dont need changed for several years, unless tractor sets outside and gets water in it. (oil will turn white)

Does the Transmission, Rear bevel gear, and pto pump all get filled at one place or are there three different fill holes?

1 inch pipe plug by your left foot. fill till it comes out the hole. no dip stick. this is in the middle of the transmission case.

Thanks! I got my tranny 'unstuck' and found alot of white fluid inside I guess it getting stuck in first gear turned out to be a blessing in disguise...

that "water" can get in very small hole and contaminate the sytem. check in a couple days and see what the oil looks like, you might be suprised that it is a "little white" might want to wait a couple weeks and change the oil again, if it looks too bad. wont really hurt the trans, but it dont help the hydraulic valve or pump. change oil a second time if it looks bad, before it gets the valve acting up.
