This is the dipstick for the steering gear and it takes 90 wt gear oil.

I hope this is correct. A local tractor place said it was Hydraulic Fluid. It makes sense since it's next to the power steering box. I'll do some further checking and let you know.

Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 8 years ago

It is for greasing the gears in the gearbox, Hydraulic fluid is too light. I was service manager for New Holland dealer. It is right! What is init now? If dipstick does not touch,use a probe to get deeper and find what was there.

I did this with a long flat screw driver and it came out almost clear.

Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 8 years ago
90 wt is clear, but quite a bit thicker than hydraulic oil. Do you see any leaks?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago

It was same consistency as hydraulic and there are no leaks. I smelled fluid and it was hydraulic. I also compared the fluids from their containers to be sure. I have a container of each.

Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 8 years ago
It's your choice, it is a contained section and the gears are what is oiled. I would use the 90 wt!

Howdy. Yesterday I fired up my Ford 1910 to change over the
Yesterday I fired up my Ford 1910 to change over the brush hog to a rear drag blade for the winter and to do general fall maintenance. It started fine and lifted the brush hog just fine. I moved over to the rear blade, changed it out and drove up to the garage. While I was driving the rear drag blade dropped. Now I have absolutely no hydraulic lift at the rear 3 point or the loader. I changed my hrydraulic transmission last fall and have had no problems. It was dirty but no water. I did not pull out the transmission screen that I have been reading about. Could that cause a sudden total failure or did my pump fail? I am willing to try cleaning the transmission screen first since I am out of work and really dont have the cash for a new $600 pump. Wondering how to do it though. I cant find any youtube videos on it. Thanks. … read more
