The other thing too I might add is I found out the rear axle seals are $62 each, they are a double lip seal with a felt wiper too in one piece. Mine is also a diesel. The thing with synthetics compared to dinosaur oil is it does not change viscosity because of temperature. Put synthetic in, there are not a lot of seals to make leak on that transmission, 2 axle, 2 brake, and one input.

I would say to use CASE-IH Hy-trans but it is EXPENSIVE!!!!!!!!! I use the farm supply store "Mid-states" which will say something on the label about recommended for CASE-IH blah blah blah... The hytrans and equivalent oils have anti-foaming agents in them that the universal fluids do not, as well as mine seem to run a bit cooler with it and it don't bubble out the shifters on my 1030. Last time I checked OEM hytrans was about $50 for 5 gallons, and the brand I use is about $35, and when my 1030 holds 16 gallons, well do the math! I would use 80W-90 in the trans as if you are getting cold like it does here when 0* is a heat wave as it won't like to move at first.

Synthetic oils are great (AMSOIL is anyway) and synthetics itself won't necessarily wreck the seals. The problem is usually that the seals are bad anyway and the dirt/sludge from the old oils are keeping the seals from leaking. The synthetics (especially in the engines) clean all the crud out and then the weak seals are exposed. In the winter you'll love synthetics.

As far as the milky fluids go.. as others have stated you've got water in there. You should look for where the water is getting in. Shifter boots are most likely the culprit but if someone has taken the trans/rear end covers off and didn't use new gaskets or seal them well they can leak there too. If it doesn't sit outside its not as big of a deal. Good luck.

The shift pattern tag is easy, we stock new ones. The clutch is adjusted with the linkage rod hooked to the pedal. Lengthen the rod out till you get about 2" of free travel with the pedal. However, the clutch could still be worn out. The brakes are adjustable by taking up the rods coming out of each cover. Again, they could be in need of serious repair also. Good luck.

If the oil is milky, it means water. Change it out, wash the Hyd. filter. 85W140 gear oil for the tranny & rear end. Hy-tran, or something similar (Trans.-Hyd. Fluid) for the Hyd. housing. We stock the shift pattern tags here.

Sounds like your local dealer is either a New Holland dealer or formerly International ag equipment. John will always be a wealth of information and can get most stuff you will need.

Your Case dealer is flat wrong on the fluids too, don't listen to him. John has the right info. Get the milky stuff out as it is contaminated with water and will eventually ruin your transmission/differential and hydraulic system.

Today's Featured Article - Restoration Story: 1929 McCormick-Deering 10-20 - by Randal Simmon. On July 4th 1998 my dad and I was sitting on the front porch when he said that he was going to sell his two 10-20's to a junk man. He said that the junk man was going to give him $500 for both of them but he hadn't received the money for them yet. So I went into the house and wrote him a check for $500 and bought them myself and said now they are mine. He had bought them about five years before thinking that he was going to restore them himself. After five years sitting in the barn, he changed h ... [Read Article]
