Well after the work was done for the day 1 pick-up infront of the shop turned into many out comes the barley pop We start talking about oil changes Wide ranges of opinions We have always been a 100 hour operation Some of the guys talking 150,200,300 I guess if you are using Syn. maybe ok We used Mobil Del vac for 30 till our dealer closed the doors since then we have used Case/Ih from our Case dealer I know with today's quality of oils & filter people are going longer i use Amsoil in car every year or 25000 miles but a tractor works alot harder! I dont know my dad always said oils cheaper than iron ok just venting whats your opinion?

On our older stuff 100 hrs. religiously ! Newer cummins in CIH tractors and combines 150 to 170 hrs., any more and they just start using oil so it must be about wore out. So much for 300 hrs. like they recomend on our 275 magnum. Filters are what get pricey !! We have run tractors over 10000 hrs. with that program with no problems.

I'm in the 100 hour club as well on our 504's, my 2294 has almost 13000 hours on and has never had the engine apart so I think it must be working.

How many hours a year may be a better question, or if you ever work it hard enough to get warm...

Condensation might be a bigger issue if it only runs 2 months out of the year.

you'll probably get a hundred comments with oil questions. with AMSOIL you can go longer drain intervals in tractors too.. assuming you have a healthy engine. Yeah tractor engines work hard but the AMSOIL 15-40 AME oil is made for that.

I wouldn't use synthetics in an older tractor. not before like 1963ish vintage. The seals in some were different and don't work with synthetic oils.

Today's Featured Article - Pitfalls of Tractor Engine Rebuilds - by Chris Pratt. The first pop after you have put the machine together with your own hands is exciting and pleasing. The whole experience can be marred if one moves too fast and makes too many assumptions that they can just use "as is" some parts they should be closely scrutinizing and possibly attended to. In such cases, rework makes what could have been a fun project turn into an irritant or even a nightmare. Minor Irritants To give you an example of an minor but irritating proble ... [Read Article]
