    Default Ford 3000 Fluid types

    Hi guys,

    Does anyone have a Ford 3000 manual and can tell me the type of transmission and rear end fluids (and capacities) I need for my 1965 Ford 3000? I'm hoping to just buy some at Walmart or Fleetfarm. I'm waiting for my user manual to arrive.

    Thanks,
    Brad

    The stuff at Walmart will be fine. I get mine in 5gal bucket at local farm supply when they have it on sale.

    Thanks Wedge,

    What I'm wondering though is what to get. Hydraulic fluid, UTF, Gear lube? Any particular specifications?

    Thanks,
    Brad

    Sorry Brad. Any UTF will do. The original spec was M2c134d. But as old as the tractor is any UTF will do.
    Here is another website you might want to visit. It caters to us guys with "mature" tractors.

    The original spec was not m2c134d.. that is the NEW spec. the new spec supercedes the older ford sped M46.something or another number.

    the walmart utf will be fine.. TSC makes some too.. find out which one is on sale.. etc.

    I too need to find out capacities and oil types for both the transmission and hydraulic fluid. I'm assuming the UTF (Universal transmission fluid?) and standard hydraulic fluid - What I don't know is what the capaicities are.

    I have milky fluid in both and imagine I will need to change it twice to get all of the water out. I'm guessing the contamination is condensation.. I also need to do the same to the loader system as well.

    the capacities in the rear axle is 25.2 qts and the capacities in the transmission is 6.6 qts with the four speed transmission and 13.2 qts with the 6 and 8 speed transmission
    the original oil in them was m-4864-a
    but utf or gl-90 will work

    know u dont have to change it twice just let it set and the water will seperate and go to the bottom so it will come at first
    but most of these tractors have the seal between the rear axle and trans. remove or it has gone out so u can fill it from one compartment

    90 weight oil might work in bayou country, but it's a poor recommendation for the hydraulics/rear axle of a 3000 when you don't know where the tractor lives.
    We have too much gun control.
    What we need is more idiot control.
