Default 1968 Ford 2000 diesel fluid types

I do not own a manual for my 1968 Ford 2000 diesel so i need to know what type of fluids go into the rear axle housing and the gear shift housing. I was told that hydralic fluid will go into the rear axle housing because that is where the hydralic pump fluid comes from. I do not know what type of fluid goes into the gearbox. Thanks in advance....Tom....."Go Kentucky WildCats"....

UTF (universal tractor fluid) which says 134D on the long list of specs it meets. In the olden days there were different fluid specs, they have been surpassed or supplanted by 134D for all Ford fluids (tranny, rear end, power steering) except engine oil and steering box (which is 80W90 unless it leaks, in which case "corn head grease" has been suggested until you get around to fixing the leaks.)

Look for square-head plugs on the right side for the fill level.

The rear end needs UTF (which really stands for Universal Tractor Hydraulic Fluid, but they leave out the H when they abbreviate it) that meets the Ford 134D specification. If it has the Select-O-Speed transmission then it needs the 134D UTF as well. If it has a manual transmission, it can take standard gear oil (80w90), or 134D UTF. Most folks use the 134D in the manual transmission for a couple of reasons, 1. to avoid cross-contamination with the 134D in the rear if a seal leaks, and 2. it's simpler to have a single fluid for everything.

If it has power steering, use 134D in the power steering pump as well.

I'm planning to change the oils on my 3000 8speed pretty soon; since we're on the subject, does anyone know how many gallons the rear, and transmission on an 8speed take? It would be very helpful to know how many gallons one needs to change out both the rear and transmission oils so you don't buy too much or you don't find yourself short having to go back into town for more oil. Thanks!

Thanks for the Data sheet! Looks like with a 8spd Transmission you're looking at 3.3 Gallons-trans, and 6.3 gallons in the the rear end/hydraulic. 9.6gallons Total; so if you plan on using the same type of oil you're looking at 2 5gallon buckets.

It's the same volumes for your 2000 for the engine and rear axle as the 3000.
I didn't find any 2000 data sheet in english, this one is in swedish:
http://www.fordson.se/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=5739

Converting the units can be done here:
http://www.calculatoredge.com/index.htm#general

Volumes for Ford 2000
Engine (incl. filter) = 6.6 liters = 1.6 gallons
Trans (8-speed) = 12.5 liters = 3.3 gallons
Rear axle = 23.9 liters = 6.3 gallons
Fuel tank = 49 liters = 13 gallons
Radiator = 12.5 liters = 3.3 gallons

the 2000 and 3000 are virtually identical machines.

a lil extra oil on hand is great for topping off.. etc.

By the way, if the tractor is equipped with external cylinders of some kind, for instance a loader, fed by the tractors pump the extra volume they need is added to the given volume for the rear axle.

Oil change procedure:
A. Lower the lifting arms fully down.
B. All external cylinders fully in.
C. Remove drain plug and drain the rear axle.
D. Replace drain plug and remove filler and level plugs.
E. Fill rear axle to level plug hole.
F. Start engine and lift arms fully up.
G. All external cylinders fully out.
H. Fill rear axle to level plug hole.

however if they are DA cyls.. you won't see half that fluid though, as it will be tied up on one sode of the piston always..

I always fill.. exercise all cyls, then top off to nominal level.

I drained my trans today & got about 6 gallons of a very thin oil out, definitely not gear oil so I am suspecting that a previous owner already put UTF in the front & back. It continued to drain real slow for a long time so I suspect the internal seal was leaking from the back to the front. I haven't drained the back end yet.... I had planned to use gear oil in the trans & UTF in the back end but I guess I'll just put UTF in both.

The fluids looked pretty good, but I have no prior history on the machine except that it sat for over 2 years without being run. I don't want to work the girl until she has fresh fluids!
