    TractorData.com Ford 555 backhoe-loader tractor information

    Not sure this is your hoe but it states 21.5 gallons. Our JD I checked holds 20.5 gallons of fluid. The manual listed on the left of the page is not cheap and I remember I paid a lot of old OEM shop manual off of ebay but they can same you major bucks.

    That is good oil but $22 a gallon at WM. There is cheaper stuff out there that will prevent metal to metal contact when the engine is running.

    At $5.50 a quart for synthetic oil.... I think that is a fair price.
