LUBRICATION: ENGINE OIL CHANGE PERIODS
The frequency of oil changes depends upon the severity of operation. Under normal operation conditions, engine oil should be changed every 100 hours of operation. Under extreme conditions (dusty, high temperature and heavy loads), oil should be changed more frequently.
The oil should be changed every 50 hours when operating the tractor in below freezing temperatures. Intermittent engine operation and idling should be kept to a minimum in cold weather to avoid dilution of the oil. Low temperature operation promotes sludging which can plug oil passages and cause the formation of corrosive acids which result in rapid engine wear.
Run the engine until the oil is at normal operating prior to draining the oil. Remove the drain plug and allow the oil to drain for at least 10 minutes.
The oil filter element, located in filter canister on left side of the engine (Fig.FO2), should be changed at the same time as the oil.
Always use new gaskets when reinstalling the filter canister and tighten retaining bolt to 20-25 ft.-lbs. (27-34 N.m) torque. Do not overtighten as canister may be distorted, resulting in oil leakage.
