30w or 10w-30 in hydro transmission?

Recommended Posts

I'm going to change the oil and filter in my Eaton 850 in hopes of clearing up my transmission problem. I think I'll also change the drive belt in case that is the problem. (See my earlier topic) My problem now is what oil to use? The operators manual says to use 30w and the Simplicity lube chart says to use 10w-30. Also the Simplicity filter is PN 1702282 but I would like to try a NAPA Gold filter to save a few bucks. What NAPA filter number should I get?

I would go with the weight of oil Simplicity recommends. You can bring the Simplicity Part Number to your nearby NAPA Store and they can cross-reference the Simplicity number over to the NAPA number.

There's been a lot of talk about different filter's here, do a search and see for yourself. Bottom line is for the few times that you do change filters spend the extra bucks and get OEM ;)

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
