MAINTENANCE AND TROUBLE-SHOOTING: LUBRICATION and ENGINE TUNE-UP

211. LUBRICATION

Clean lubricants prevent self destruction in all mechanical devices. Study and follow lubrication recommendations so that your tractor will operate with a film of oil or grease in all bearings. Metal-to-metal bearing contact without a protecting film of lubricant soon ruins high velocity bearing surfaces.

Transmission oils are produced to meet many different requirements. No one oil is satifactory for all uses. Compounds sometimes are added to oils which form a gum deposit. Such deposits on the hydraulic system control valves may cause operational failure. It is, therefore, important to follow the recommendations as shown in the lubrication chart.

The lubrication chart (fig. 22) shows the points to be lubricated on the Ford Tractor. For convenience in reading, points to be lubricated at the various frequencies are indented different amounts. The suggested frequency of application and specifications of the lubricants are given for average operating conditions. Extremes of temperature and dust must be considered when following the suggested lubricating schedules. Extremely low temperatures may increase the transmission oil viscosity to a point where the hydraulic control cannot operature properly. When the tractor is running in thick dust, the air cleaner and beather cap should be serviced more frequently.


212. ENGINE TUNE-UP

If the tractor is to be used the year around, a semi-annual tune-up of the engine should be performed. If the tractor is to be stored during the winter months, the engine should be tuned when the tractor is removed from storage.


This manual is perfect for the restorer or anyone working on one of these vehicles. Clear illustrations show exploded views as well as component details and more.
