On the tansmission, after draining add 3 1/2 pints of diesel fuel or kerosene and drive the tractor for about five minutes and drain it again. Then refill with 90 weight.

On the steering, make sure you clean out the fill plug breather holes.

Pick up or make a set of final drive pan gaskets before you start.

Refill to the level plug, on left side of transmission. It will take 3 1/2 pints more or less.

And when you get all of that done,grease the throwout bearing, oil the fan and generator and grease (carefully) the distributor, etc

I prefer to use Hy Tran in all those places (except the steering gear box). Possibly a marketing scam by IH (to sell a proprietary product) but it is listed first in the lube charts after about 1960. It is a lighter oil (closer to 30 wt) but it will take up some water.

A gallon will fill the TC and the transmission. For some reason I dislike the smell of gear oil.

It is very worthwhile to have a copy of the 'Operators Manual' and the lubrication is well covered there.

Also repack the front wheel bearings... and a flush of the cooling system is good, lots of folks use water and that will cause problems if it gets cold.
