I would NOT RUN that hydro!  PERIOD!  The regular Hytran oil is a 30 weight and it is the fluid for both the hydro and the differential.  Regardless of that fact for 200 bucks I would pick it up either way.  Even if the hydrostat is bad a good 50" deck is worth $200 in itself.  You can get a used hydrostat pump quite reasonably and would still be ahead of the game for what the tractor is worth.

 

If you go for it before anything else drain the fluid out of it and put in fresh CaseIH Hytran and a new filter.  Post up some pictures of it and we can give a better idea of its worth.  I had a 1450 with a 44C deck at one time and could quick myself for getting rid of it.

Ouch gear oil in a hydro Cub.Hope they didn't burn the pump up.

 

1st thing I would do is flush the entire system out with kerosine.Including the Lift cylinder and all of the lines.2nd thing is get a new filter and refill it with cheap TSC or napa Universal Tractor Trans/Hydraulic fluid and run it around your yard and work the lift controls up and down until the fluid is good and warm.Then drain the entire system and refil with another new filter.

 

 

You can run the cheap fluid in your cub it won't hurt it but it is a tad bit thicker than the Case/IH Hytran fluid.It makes them a bit sluggish when it's really cold out but once the fluid warms up it works perfectly.

 

Here's what I've been using in my old cubs.It's $12.00 for 2 gallon at our local TSC.

The guy days it runs and drives. Either way if it's messed up or if It's not I'm excited. This cub needs to be my plow tractor this year. Hope it's not a mess.

Ok. He put the oil in it. He said he didn't know any better. He parked it when he found out he had the wrong oil. He ran it less than two hours. He has no reason to lie as he knows I was after just the motor. If the hydro is good this will be my new main tractor. I need to get a sleeve hitch asap. Plow time is near.

If it has 90 wt oil and is cold, it's going to be a looonnng one too.  Any way to warm up that trans before you try to drain it?

I think I may go ahead and drain it now. That gives it 4 hours to drain before I go home.

David, this will likely be your best tractor yet to plow with.  Strong hydro diff units!  You gotta settle down with a tractor one of these days!    :smilewink:

If I can double my money I'm going to sell. I want to find the right tractor. I've never worked a cub and I love the looks of these. Maybe this will be a keeper. Look what S and S dropped off...

That's a fine looking tractor. I would give $200 for that any day! Looks like it come from my neck of the woods too.

Yeah up here is Versailles. It wasn't for sale. He just wanted to lower the price of the roper. This day is taking forever. I'm ready to get home and drive this thing.

Quickest way to drain the fluid is to take the rear cover off the tranny.  Might be a good idea to do it anyhow just to take a quick peak inside the differential housing.  Just gotta be careful with the gasket.  Doesnt look too bad.  I woulda gave 200 for it.  Did the side curtains for the tractor or the belt guard for the deck come with it?
