I have a Ford 2600 deisel and I just drained the tranny and rear
end. The IT manual calls for Ford 134 fluid in both cavities. I
assume this is a high quality Hydraulic fluid. Any suggestions on
what to use. It appeared that the rear end was using 80-90
weight when I drained it and the tranny was using hid. oil. Any
suggestions on what to use? Thanks

Use the 134D fluid. Make sure the bucket says that, not just "suitable for all Ford tractors". It also keeps you from having 2 buckets sitting around. Ford changed their recommendations to 134D quite a few years ago.

134 fluid is not just "high quality hydraulic oil". It has additives that make it work correctly across a range of applications. The transmission and rear axle need a lubricating oil that will cling to the mating surfaces of the gears (trans and diffy) under extreme pressure (EP) conditions and the 134 fluid has additives that provide those properties. 134 fluid also has additives that avoid slippage on wet brakes and wet clutches as well, and while a 2600 doesn't need those properties, the larger Ford tractors of the same time period did have wet brakes and PTO clutch packs that did require those properties.

As RESLLS said, make sure that whatever brand you get says on the label that it meets the Ford/New Holland M2C134 specification. The current version of the spec is M2C134D, but a tractor as old as a 2600 could use something that meets the earlier A, B or C versions of the spec as well.

Depending upon the year of your tractor, you may be able to use a less expensive brand.

The Extreme brand meets an earlier 134(B) specification and has the following note: Not recommend for use in equipment manufactured after 1975 unless specified by manufacturer.

It has a lower review rating because some reviewers are disappointed in the viscosity at colder temperatures. Although both have the specification: Pour Point: -44° F

excellent reply, Mike.
I bought the Traveller brand- for a bit more money, I figure it's worth the extra investment.
