Allis 712 Fluid change


Recommended Posts


I tried to do a search for fluid change info on a Allis 712  rear end and nothing popped up.  I did find info on the hydraulic filter required which  1650954.


Could some help with the fluid type and weight needed for the rear end and also the same for the beveled gear box.

It would be much appreciated. Dave

The fluids @ShaunE mentions above are the "original" recommended fluids (same as the ones in my early (1974) A712H operators manual); a later version (1994) of the A712H operator manual lists "Allis-Chalmers Power Fluid 401 (Dexron)" as the fluid for the hydrostatic unit.  

Check the fluids currently in your tractor; someone might have "upgraded" to the newer recommended "Simplicity" fluids.  See this post for more info:
