1969 Ford 2000 engine oil-hydraulic oil

I recently sold a Ford 2000 and customer says he has put 6 quarts of engine oil in so far. He is not a heavy user and that amount of oil is excessive. His hydraulic oil becomes black soon after changing and I am wondering if perhaps engine oil(possibly though the hydraulic pump)can get back there? Exhaust appears to be normal and no leaks are apparent. Any ideas?

Just got home and looked at 3 tractors and the books. No way that engine oil is going to transfer 6 qts of oil to the hyd system period.

Something is fishey. Suggest you investigate. You're not getting the whole story.

If I can help more, ask.

It'd have to but how. I know there is oil (probably splash engine oil) on the pump's drive gear (piston pump on left side). Would have to have some kind of pressure and really bad seals to get into hyd that way. Hyd lines to the hyd section don't come anyways near the crankcase. Bolt up to the tranny. The rear main seal is out as there are too many things to stop that from being it.

How's the hyd oil level? Does it appear to be higher than before? Does it have remotes? If so, dirty oil could be coming from dirty implements.

Man you have a brain teaser here. Will think about it this evening and see if I can come up with something.


PS Guy doesn't have neighborhood pranksters does he?

Woops. That's 3 mistakes in 2 days. 1969. Mine are pre '65. Don't know what happened after that on the 2000. Have a '65 to '75 service manual that might shed some light, but don't know if '75 and '79 are the same. On the bigger tractor, the '75 was a 4000 and the '79 was a 4600. Don't know differences yet (just got the 4600...no manuals) but could look in the '75 manual. Will do.

Today's Featured Article - Recollections of a John Deere GP - by Charlie Cook. I grew up on my dad's 280 acre general farm in Western Michigan. Dad's only tractor when I was very young was the old GP. My first recollection of this tractor was when dad allowed my brother and myself to ride on the tractor with him driving. One of us would sit on the left fender (away from the clutch) and other would sit on the gas tank and hold onto the crankcase breather pipe. ... [Read Article]
