Hello I have a 1959Case 310b that I picked up about a month ago I have fixed or repaired every thing that needs to be fixed, now I have one more thing I need to do, Fill the fluids, I don't want to put the wrong fluids in so I figured I would ask first, OK First I need to know what fluid to put in the Shuttle shift part. Second there is a LARGE bolt ( top left side of the pic) behind the shifter for the 1-4 gear I am assuming that is the transmission fluid filler area, if i am right what fluid do I put in there, and last what other fluids should I check and replace? and with what fluid. sorry if it sounds like very dumb questions but this is my very first tractor and i want to do everything right but can find very little about this tractor. thanks in advance for any help you can be.. on a final note I love this site it has helped in most of my question

Type oil and capacities from 300B - 400B owners manual. Capacities are approximate, can vary a couple qts.

Transmission SAE 90 gear oil. 17 qts. Fill plug has dipstick attached. Fill to mark. Grease the outboard axle bearings, zerks on axle housing.

Torque tube SAE 10 motor oil, alternate hydraulic oil or automatic transmission fluid type A. 12 qts. 1/4" npt plug with dipstick attached will either be on the right front corner of the same cover as fill plug or back near that leaf.

Steering gear housing SAE 140 gear oil. More than 1 qt, less than 2. Fill to top of worm gear.

Engine crankcase SAE 10, 20, or 30 motor oil pending ambient temps.

Air cleaner, same oil as engine crankcase. About a cup.

Bear in mind that oils have changed and generally are better due to modern additives, multi-grades, etc since this manual was written.

Personally, I use a general purpose hydraulic oil in the torque tube or sometimes SAE 10-30 motor oil (for heavy loader work using internal pump) but single grade oils elsewhere including the engine.

Joe
