Hydro Oil Change

Recommended Posts

When I got my 917H it was sluggish and slow. I changed the filter and oil and that made a world of difference. I have had alot of tractors go thru here and the biggest problems is that most of them have the original oil in them and it is low. It just seems as if people don`t realize that a little preventive maintenance goes along way. My 917H more than likely had the orignal filter and oil in it.

When you change the filter do not use a cheap filter like Fram, mighty, etc. they will cause problem.. They do not have the correct micron rating or flow rate. Use an OEM filter or a Quality name brand filter that crosses directly with the OEM number like Wix, Napa, Baldwin. This has been proven out many times by the members here.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
