We acquired a 1977 Massey 1655 a few months ago and have set about putting her back in reasonable condition. While the tractor has many deficiencies, over-all things are not that bad. Everything that we will be using functions well. Mostly want to use the rig to plow and "disk" our Veg. garden, and, during the winter, snowblow. All the equipment needed to accomplish these tasks is ready or near so.
We are the third owner of the tractor; the guy we purchased from had it for 15 years and knew little of the previous owners habits regarding maintaining the machine. In that 15 years the second owners had never changed the trans/Hyd fluid or filter. Though the transmission works flawlessly I reason that the oil is certainly due for "recycling". I was happy (and appreciative !) to have located the proper owners manual from a very helpful member of this site. However, the trans oil indicated in this manual is not available.
Can anyone out "there" advise me on what type/brand of transmission fluid and filter to use.
Kind Regards to All
