transmission lube for my 310

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]
