COULD I USE JOHN DEERE low viscosity hyguard!

Recommended Posts

I think type F at walmart is only a $1.30 a quart. I would also stick with what is recommended for it. Also either use a Simplicity filter or a good quality aftermarket filter like NAPA, Wix or Baldwin. I think that the NAPA number that I have on my 917H is 1068 filter. Don`t mess with a Fram filter on these hydro units.

You can use the Lo Vis Hy Gard - it is used in the John Deere 300 series tractors like the 316 which has basically the same hydro as a 919. It is probably a better oil than auto trans fluid. The Lo Vis will let the hydro and hydraulic lifts respond better in tractors used in cold weather. By the way, I think that Valvoline makes the oils for John Deere. Tim

      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!😁
