CA fluids

Hi. I recently bought a CA and have gotten it running. I'm getting ready to change the fluids. Who knows right off hand what the proper fluids are for engine, trans, final drive, hydraulic, etc? Also, I'm a little bit puzzled about the final drives. They don't seem to have drain plugs on the bottom. Instead the drain plugs are about three or four inches up the side of the final drive. So my question is, how do I drain them? Surely the gears run below the level of the plugs. I'm just afraid there may be water in there and I want to drain them. I opened the plugs that are there on both sides, and nothing came out. I have driven the tractor around the yard a little bit and it seems to go ok-- everything in the drive train works except the axle clutch, which I think was welded together previously. If nothing came out those plugs, does that mean nothing's in there at all?

Engine originally specified single wt oil based upon temperature. I have a good tight engine so use 10w-30. If engine is loose use 10W-40. The transmission hydraulic and pto are the same cavity and same oil, most people uae hydrolic/transmission oil it is about 20 wt. There are 3 plugs to drain this cavity.

Final drives can not drained without taking off the pan. Use 140 wt gear oil. The two stearing gear boxes usually leak oil so a lot of peoplre remove the plugs and put grease fittings there and use Gen purpose grease.

Good Luck.

I have all the manuals so if I can help just e-mail me.

Today's Featured Article - Madison's County - by Anthony West. Philip Madison has been a good friend of mine for quite some time. He has patiently suffered my incessant chit chat on the subject of tractors for longer than I care to remember, and on many occasions he has put himself out, dropped what ever it was he was doing, to come and lend a hand cranking handles, or loading a find onto a trailer. Although he himself has never actually owned or restored a tractor, he was always enthusiastic and always around helping with other peoples projects. ... [Read Article]
