Good day. I have actually some questions around a 1977 Ford backhoe 555. I want to store it kept as far as fluids and also filters etc. Ns do have actually the manuals however I’m having actually a tough time finding details I think I’m simply stupid LOL Anyways is the hydraulic fluid running the transmission and rear end? Is over there a transmission filter I require to change besides the hydraulic filter? What is the best means to preserve his opportunity for lengthy use. Right now it’s running great and shifts and also drives front and ago great. Simply wanna save it running as much as par. Thank you guys.

The hydraulic fluid for the loader and backhoe is elevation of the liquid in the transmission and additionally from the fluid in the behind end. The loader/backhoe hydraulics reservoir is in a tank over the radiator in the sleep of the tractor. There are actually 2 filters on the system. One is in ~ the top of the tank where the return heat connects come the optimal of the tank. That very first one is a cartridge style filter. The second one is a metal display at the bottom that the tank within the fitting wherein the supply line because that the pump pipeline the tank.As come whether there is a filter for either the infection or the behind axle depends on a couple of things:Transmission - what infection does the have? The 555 can have come through a 6x4 hand-operated reversing infection or a 4x4 torque converter auto reversing transmission (auto reverser has the F-N-R manage on dash to the left that the steering column). The manual reverser go not have actually a filter. The auto reverser should have a filter on the left side (as you"re sitting on the tractor) of the transmission housing itself close to where the cooling lines because that the transmission leave the housing to go up to the radiator. It is a spin-on style filter, down and also rearward native the engine oil filter.Rear axle - If the tractor go not have actually a 3 allude lift (most 555"s walk not), climate it won"t have actually a filter for the behind axle fluid. If it does have actually a 3 suggest lift, the filter would be ~ above the body of the 3 allude hydraulic pump, which must be ~ above the left next of the engine close to the flywheel, up and also rearward from the engine oil filter. The one would also be a spin-on style filter if that exists.You need to use a great UTF that claims on its brand that that meets or exceed the Ford/New Holland M2C134D specification for both the transmission and rear axle. You deserve to use a much less expensive hydraulic liquid for the loader/backhoe reservoir.
