I just recently bought a 1946 VAC. Great little tractor especially now that it has a working battery in it!

Any way at some point hydraulics were added and it has a square tank on the right hand side of the tractor. When you open the box there is no dip stick or anything. I'm wondering how much hydraulic fluid should be in there? Should it be full to the top, half full etc..

Also is there a certain brand / weight of fluid that shoul be used? (I am very new to the old tractor hobby but am really enjoying it!


And I'm trying to upload a photo of it but can't see to get it to work.

Is there a drain on the tank? Might take a little out and see what it looks like. Could just be motor oil. About any kind of hydraulic fluid should work.
