    Default Permatran III Replacement

    I was searching for a suitable replacement for Permatran III and I came across Valvoline Unitrac Fluid (http://www.valvoline.com/pdf/hd_unitrac.pdf). It is available through NAPA Auto Parts as part number VAL 813 in 5 gallon size. Note that Valvoline claims: "Meets or exceeds the following current specifications (Where appropriate viscosity grade applies)." including Massey Ferguson M1141(Permatran III), M1143, M1135. Unitrac also meets or exceeds older specs: Massey Ferguson M-1129-A, M-1127-B, M-1127-A, M-1110.
    Its pricey, but Valvoline claims to meet manufacturers specifications and Unitrac is available from NAPA. Hope this helps.

    I belive using any other than Permatran in your tractor voids the warrenty.

    That is not true as long as the oil meets the spec... unless the factory oil is provided free of charge during the warranty period.

    At least not in the US. That was part of the Magnuson Moss Act. (1975)

    Here in western PA Coastal Multi-Trac retails for $49 per 5 gallons. Valvoline Unitrac is over $100 for 5 gallons.
