Wondering if there is grease or oil in the drop axles on the IH 140 Tractor? Is there more than likely some water in there too after 60 years of use.....enough water to lock the wheels in freezing temps??? I have already drained the transmittion and there was about 1/2 gallon of water in there.
So what do you think?
Thanks, Kevin

gear oil.80/90 is my choice.Only use 85/140 if you are pulling the snot out of it in 100 degree heat all day long.

There should be gear oil in those final drives, not grease.
And yes, they can get water in them that would freeze.

You can use 90 wt or 80-140, either will do just fine. I also put a cup or so of STP in with the gear oil. It seems to help quiet the gear whine that these get sometimes.

You have to unbolt the pan and then spill about a cup of fluid getting it out of there. Clean the pan and refill thru the plug like any other gear box. Holds a quart I think, each side.
