hello everyone,

 

I am trying to help the elderly man down the road from me get his tractor back up and running before the snow hits today.  He has a 918 Allis chalmers, I think it is an Agco / Allis, anyhow it looks like after the last snow we had and he plowed his drive and parked it, it leaked oil out of the rear end / transmission area.  I am not sure where to check the fluid level for sure.  I looked at for all of 2 min a few days ago when i drove by going home and seen him on the ground.  I thought he fell so i stopped to help him and found out he was looking at the tractor.  So i thought i might go down and at least check a few things for him today.

 

If any one could please let me know and what kind of oil that takes,  I might be able to at the least get it running so he can do his drive.

 

thanks in advance

Welcome to GTT. We have a pretty good Manuals Section where you can download the manual for that info. Good Luck, Rick

That's nice of you to help out. Not many people do that these days. Would be a better place if more people did.

If there anything like the 718 the one I had when I got it had the fill tube broken off. The fill tube etc is or should be at the back of the tractor between the sides of the rear hitch.

Man, that IS bad place for a fill tube. I could see where you might break that off hooking up something on a hitch. Might be good thing to check. Otherwise if it is really leaking, could be lots of things like seals or maybe a bad hose. May not be an easy fix, and will need more tear-down?  Should have fixed in summer.
