20w 40 motor oil is what is recommended However that is getting hard to find so most use a high quality motor oil usually a 15w 40 or a 20w 50, I noticed that you are from Indiana so either one should work fine for you

 

Oh I almost forgot Welcome to GT Talk.

I second what Arti said.....use Rotella 15w40 motor oil. Rotella appears to be a brand widely used and recommended around here. I have a Case 444 and it still seems odd to be dumping motor oil in my hydro system. Welcome to the site. Poke around and you'll find lots of great stuff and the guys and gals (yes we do have gals around here which is cool) here are not only helpful but great company.

Welcome to GTtalk Oliver :-) Lots of great info and folks here. :wave:

 

I too run the Rotella 15 w 40 in the CASE machines here. There are a few folks that have filled their system with " Hydraulic" oil and then have all sorts of problems with their machines not traveling anywhere.... Please do not be one of those folks :-) 

 

 It " seems " strange at first, but use motor oil. :thumbs:

You nailed it right on the head with that last quote. Case GT's do not have hydro's. Its hydraulic drive. That is the key difference and the reason for the motor oil, otherwise we would be using Hytran.

Colt, Case, and Ingersoll's use a oil pump connected to the rear of the engine. That little pump does it all. It's the heart of the Case GT.

In 1962 Colt patented the hydraulic drive system that is still in use on all new Ingersoll GT's. It's the same basic design now as it was 50 years ago.

I bought one quart just because I thought it was interesting they had their own labeled oil.

thanks for all of the help!! i ended up using 15w 40 because it was cheaper and i can use it for more than just the case hydraulics! now i have another question. its been sitting outside for a long time and im worried their might be a small amount of water in the hydraulic lines. what would be the best way to flush the system out on this?

It would be a good idea to locate a Owners Manual for your tractor.

but! To save you the hassle for now,.. there is a allan wrench drain screw on the Travel Control Valve. Be sure to get the wrench fully on it as some are very hard to loosen without damage since 95% of people don't change the hydraulic oil annually as the manual says to.

Take out the allan bolt. Then pull the plug wire off and pull out the spark plug and make sure the engine will turn over without starting. Turn over the engine until oil stops coming out the dain hole. You may want to let it drain by itself for awhile so you don't drain your battery or hurt your starter. Just turn it over for about 8 seconds at a time. Then let it sit for a few more.

This action spins the pump slow enough to not wreck it while minimal oil is in it and it also uses the pump to drain the system completely. These instructions are in the manual.  

 

What I do is buy some cheap oil and put it in after doing this first drain then I run the tractor and all the hydraulics for a little bit., Then I repeate the process. That should flush it out pretty well.

Good Luck! :thumbs:
