Those are a lot cheaper and easier to find. The Wix # is 51307

Sundstrand and Eaton are quite flexible for the type of fluid that is put in their hydros. Quality hydraulic oil, motor oil, and ATF are all acceptable.

 

JD recommends their HyGuard (house brand), MF recommends M-1110 (house brand) or ATF Type A (now Dexron), and other tractor manufacturers spec their own house brands, motor oils of various viscosities, or ATF Type F, all for the same transmissions.

 

I've been happy with the Dexron that is in my MF1655 since 1982, but it has spent most of its hours moving snow in temperatures as low as -30°. It has gotten to work in the summer heat (+90°) as well.

New Holland has them! Grab your wallet! Part # 87346701 and it's >$117. I'm changing mine to a screw-on next time around!

Just checked my ford YT16H manual and it says you shouldn't have to change trans oil, but I'd like to anyway

Calls for detergent SAE20.. Sound right?

Thanks all for your replies. I'm enjoying this forum as many people post info.I have found that I can run John deere Hygard and John Deere filters and I do so because I work for a Deere dealer and can get these at a discount. But it's good to know all these options. Thanks again.
