Oil

Engine: 15W30
Steering Box: 15W40
Hydraulics & Gearbox: 15W40

The engines filler cap is removed by pulling and hooking out the way, as it is on a spring. The drain plug is at the bottom of the sump, either on the left or right, depending on model.

The steering box is filled by a small filler hole, but it has no drain plug.

When filling the gearbox, you have to give the oil time to settle backwards before it will reach the dipstick, so don't keep pouring more in because it hasn't shown a level on the dipstick yet. The are 3 drain plugs for this: 1 big one and two little one under the tractor. It holds 5 gallons (22.8 litres).

Paint

Acid Etch Primers are recommended for Aluminium
For the rest, any decent quality Zinc Oxide, or Red Oxide will do.
For the top coat, it's quite straight forward - its all Grey. Always stick with one type of paint from start to finish. Do not mix brands, even if they all say "Ferguson Grey".

400ml Spray can: MF part number: 393 192 8M7
Tin of Paint 1Litre: MF part number: 393 102 8M5

Also sold by Sparex and other parts companies. Search under your tractor model for "Paint" and it should list the ones for it.

Mikey
