Hello, Im new to posting here, but have read many posts on this website. I just thought you all might be interested in the new toy I just picked up. Im planning to change engine oil in the near future and other basic maintenance, but is there any thing else I need to maintenance. Change transmission oil or just check and top off ect.

Thanks

I'm planning to change hydraulic and gear oil, but what oil is recommended. I noticed the book says to use 5 to 20W oil depending on the season but it gets well below freezing in the winter and well above 60 in the summer with both sometimes occuring in a day or twos time. Is there a modern oil that is acceptable for all seasons? I assume 90W oil is still applicable for the gear case. I was also wondering about using the same universal fluid in both. Rural king sells alot of the CAM2 303 in yellow buckets. Is this any good, Ive read mixed reviews. Also what do the numbers on hydraulic fluid mean, for example iso 32 or aw 46.

Thanks

Also I need to change hydraulic and transmission oil in an sc as well. I assume both would take about the same thing.

In the my reply to the post that Kevin referenced, the length of the replacement stem tube should read:

"Total length of the replacement tube should be for a height 3-3/4" above the press shoulder which has a depth of about 1/2" if I remember right".

Thanks KEvin, You truely are the fixer. I figured this procedure was on the site somewhere but I have not had much luck finding old posts. IT would be nice if we could archive old how-to posts. Maybe you can and i just don't know how to find them.

I'd say search the forums. It's already been done, there was a whole thread on it maybe a year or so ago, sizes and hole sizes and all. AFAIK they are no longer available but easily made. Like so many other things for our poor old antiques.

Someone had already made one for my 611b. They tend to get lost as they come loose and stick in the old filter. But without it your oil pressure goes from low to non-existent.



Just make sure it gets re-installed and not thrown away with the old filter.

Yikes, I am missing that oil filter tube on my VAC and maybe the 351 too! If John Saeli doesn't have it, can someone post how to make one?

Thanks to all who directed me to the tube solution for the oil filter on the VAC. Have it made and installed. 1/4 brake line worked fine.

When you remove the oil filter you have to slide it up and off a center hollow metal stem. Make sure the stem is there and make sure it doesn't come off with the filter.

The tractor is a 50 mode l serial starts with 54... I had a chance to drive it around today and every thing seemed to work well. The only thing I noticed was the hydraulic pump makes some noise under pressure. Is this normal, or is there something I will need to investigate.

Thanks,
Lee

Mine wines fairly loud for a bit until it warms up and then it will quiet down some.

Sweet VAC! Do you know what year it is? I have always had a soft spot for VACs. Dad had a VAC he outgrew and traded on a new '51 DC, which we still have. About ten years ago I bought this one which needed a lot of work. It is now field ready. I will paint it someday, but I'm having aot of fun with it the way it is.

Cool tractor and trailer very happy for you. The VAC has good looking tires that’s worth a lot right there. I have a 1946 model that my mom’s family bought new after world war 2. Not the most powerful but it sure is dependable. It will start when none of my old tractors will! There is a lot of stuff online for these, but a manual probably would be a good buy. I’ll be watching to see how this progresses for you!

if you are not familiar with older Case tractors one of the first things that might scare you is the oil pressure if it has an aftermarket 0-60lb guage. These are low oil pressure engines and standard gauges only read 0-13 with the needle on the low side of the half way mark.

You are in luck. You picked a tractor that has many manuals online. THey can be found at http://imageevent.com/skipjack/vamanuals. All you have to watch for on the manuals is that in mid 1951 the changed the tractor a bit--mostly sheetmetal and steering. Most of the manuals are for your tractor however,

Welcome Lee, glad you came here, personally I would change rear end oil, engine coolant. I would obtain a operators manual.

Lee, you need to make a few posts before they'll let you put up pics. It's to keep spammers from having too easy a time of it. Congrats on your new toy--um, excuse me, I mean tool! Recommend you get a copy of the operator's manual to start with, it should cover all basic maintenance.
