    I agree with SG kerosene is considered # 1 grade fuel.

    I was a little off with the ratios. Here's my original source:


    You will need to replace the oil. I would not even try to separate it out.

    You do not have to strip out the rear axle. If you are going to go that far you need to remove both axle shafts as well so that is a no-no.

    In an earlier post I told you about the intake filter at the base of the rear axle housing behind a plate that is held by four bolts. Drain the oil and take this plate off. Clean the filter and let as much gunge as possible drain out. Then replace this and the filter and put in two gallons of clean 30W oil followed by 5 gallons of kerosene. Run the tractor around for 1/2 to 3/4 hour with this mixture then drain it out. You should remove the filter and plate again as any gunge will find its way to the filter.

    Then refill with 30W oil.

    This was the method that was recommended by Ford Motor Company to dealers who had to clean rear axle housings in the field. Do not use diesel, it has to be kerosene though.

    kerosene USED to be cheap.. cheaper than diesel.. same with tvo.

    that changed drastically.

    ok, but my info wasn't bad. Please don't be rude when you post. When you do you go from sound advice to sounding like an old crotchety guy, pardon the puns.

    Yelbike,
    Kerosene, heating oil, diesel, jet fuel, etc, etc, are all basically the same. The engine fuels (diesel, jet A) have an additive package that gives them more lubricity than kerosene, not less.
    Short answer: Soundguy gave you solid information, even if you think he was a little harsh about it. We'll send him to sensitivity training and you can take the chip off your shoulder.

    My other tractor is a '95 Kenworth.
