3 Speed Transmission and BGB Oil

Recommended Posts


What type of transmission oil is to be used in the 3 speed manual transmissions and BGB?

I have looked through the manuals with no luck in finding the oil type.

I recently used a universal transmission/hydraulic oil from TSC in my 3112V.

I believe it is too thin, as I have never leaked so much fluid from my cracked axle tube before.

It is leaking really badly. I am going to have to take it out of mowing until I can get it fixed.

Thanks, that is what I was thinking of going with next time is 80-90 wt gear oil.

That universal transmission/hydraulic oil from TSC, is that more well suited for hydrosatic transmissions?

The manual for my B110 calls for 80EP in both the tranny and BGB. I would assume all 3 speed trannys and BGB would be the same.

      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!😁
