transmission lube for my 310

Recommended Posts

Simplicity simply recommends SAE90 gear oil... The smell you're getting is likely just from "old oil" since it has likely been in there a few years. However, if the gear oil level is really low, it could be the smell of the oil getting hot... have you checked the level?

I was wondering what the best lube for the transmission on my 310 would be? I am pretty sure it is a beveled gear simplicity trans.IT works fine but I get a strong scent of gear lube when it is parked,IS this common?

I looked for the Red Line site that was mention and found www.redline.com to be a medical site so I tried www.redlineoil.com and that seems to be the right site. Tim[A href='http://www.redlineoil.com']http://www.redlineoil.com[/a]

Has anybody tried using Red Line synthetic tranny fluid in their tractor? I have been using Red Line tranny oils in my cars for many years with great success. I think they are great stuff. In a car, the improvment in shifting is hard to believe. I would think it should work just as well in the tractors. Espically for those who live in really cold climates. Kent mentioned using a SAE90 gear oil. Red Line makes several different oil that I think might work. The following is a clip from their web site: "If a 90W GL-4 or SAE 40, 10W40, or 15W40 is required, MT-90 may be used. If the transmission or transaxle requires an SAE 90 GL-5 gear oil, then Red Line 75W90NS or 75W140NS Gear Oil may be used." Perhaps Kent knows if the tranny need a GL-4 or a GL-5? I don't work for Red Line, I'v just had good experiences with their stuff. Be warned though, it is a little pricey at about $8 a quart. But our babies are worth it, right?[A href='http://www.redlineoil.com']http://www.redlineoil.com[/a]

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
