There was a post awhile ago about stripping paint off a cub (or anything else).
Many suggested using a grinder with wire wheel for the cast parts and grinder with sander attachment for the tin. Any specific wire wheel? Any specific sander (what grit?)

Also as far as hydraulic fluid it sounds like hytran is what to use. Do you get this at a case / IH dealership or do other stores sell it?

Hy-Tran/Hy-Tran Ultra is the preferred choice. However .. any hydraulic fluid that meets or exceeds MS1209 specs is more than sufficient.

I have moved over to Perma-Tran/Umbra simply because of my wood splitter. Ray and I swap it out between my Cub and his M-F 1040 so since he uses Umbra .. that is what I use. Really pretty much the same. Just make sure it meets MS1209 specs.

Stripping paint ...

1. Wire wheels are not the greatest invention. First off them little metal wires hurt like tarnation. Second .. the dust generated is NOT efficaceous for good pulmonary health ...

2. Wire wheels also get expensive, the work area gets really dirty, your other half will not appreciate you tracking all of that into the house .. ask me :-)

3. Suggest you try this:
