the motor should take 4 quarts of 10w30 motor oil just like you put on your pickup. use detergent oil, no matter what any one tells you otheriwse. the transmission, hydraulics and pto are all 1 cavity. fill is by your left foot. 3 drains on the bottom, 1 each cavity = 1/2 inch pipe plug. total is about 8 quarts of trans hydraulic oil. you can get a 2.5 gallon container at Wal Mart of 20wt hy-trans for about $10. The lst area is the final drive pans at the bottom of each drive case (positioned in the rear wheel rims). thre are about 12 small bolts holding each cover on. remove, clean out the crud and reinsatall. make your own gasket and use RTV. put 2 quarts of 90wt gear lube in each thru the pipe plug hole.

All that and more would be found in the OPERATOR manual.

Operator's manuals are nice, but they are out of date in some areas. I'd bet it will recommend SAE 30 during summer and SAE 10 during winter oils. And non-detergent. Lubricants have come a long way in the past 50 years. I'd go with 10W-30 detergent - winter or summer.

The saga starts with the following message: Hey guys I have a decision to make. I know what you all will probably suggest and it will probably agree with me way down inside, but here it is. I have a picture blown up and framed in my "tractor room" of a Farmall M. It was my Grandpa's tractor, of which whom I never got to meet.
