What oil to use

Recommended Posts

Ray, I agree you can run either oil in the BGB. But for the "trany" if it calls for Simplicity Hydraulic Fluid, then it can't be 80-90 wt oil since it must be a hydro tranny. It needs hydraulic fluid or Dextron. Correct? If it's a 3spd gear tranny, then the 80-90 wt is OK.

Thanks guys. Yes, I have a six speed or three speed with high and low. I should have known what to use but must be I didn't write things down a couple years ago when I rebuilt the trany and put a new bevel gear in the gear box. I figured it was 80 90 but like to be sure so nothing gets hurt. Thanks

        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
