Help Ford 600 Tractor

We have a 600 Ford tractor and my husband would like to know if anyone can tell him how you check to see if your hydraulic oil is correct and how much hydraulic oil it takes.

We know there are three reservoirs and they go from one to the other. Also if you are sitting on the seat on the left hand side is what appears to be a dipstick, is this where you check and if so where should it be?

My name is Lynne and I am in Ontario, Canada.

the sumps are seperate and in fact DO NOT go from one to the other.

trans, fill by shifter, drain underneath.. level check is a PLUG on the right side just above the running board, near your right foot.. but on trans.. not on center setion. don't remove any bolts fromthe side of the trans.. just that plug.

hyds, fill under left front of seat under left thigh.. drain underneath.. hyd dipstick on left side by pto shifter.

diffy fill behid seat, right side aft of your right but cheek kinda..

drain underneath diffy.. is a plug.. other two are large bungs.

level check is a plug on the back of the left axle trumpet mid way up.. near the flange where the trumpet bolts to the center housing.

gear oil in the trans and diffy, utf in the hyds.. or utf in all 3. utf meeting m2c134d ford spec reccomended. trans type will change the amount of oil.. but if going utf in all.. get a 5g pail.. otherwise, a 2g pail of utf, and 4g of gear oil.

Hi Lynne, Welcome aboard. Always great to have another 600 series owner posting.

BTW, UTF is Universal Transmission Fluid. Available at Tractor Supply, Walmart and many auto stores.

The Ford 600 tractors, along with some other models have a seal between the front, (transmission) and rear (hydraulic) sections of the housing. Unless the unit has been rebuilt within the past couple of years and that seal replaced, the chance of cross over contamination is possible. I'd drain all the oil out of both and refresh with hydraulic oil in both compartments. The worn seal will allow the trans oil to pass through and contaminate the hydraulic fluid. The proper hyd. fluid in both compartments will eliminate that situation and with the modern formulas, the transmission will be properly lubricated. Unless you replace that seal yourself, a lot of work, a shops fee will be very expensive due to work and time involved. JMHO. PJ

that seal is between the hyd section and the diffy.. not the trans and the hyd.
