Forget the "what oil is the best" discussion, this is a comparison of Oil vs no Oil!
Anything oil-like would have been better than this! Looks like it is all new guts for this creeper.


If you want it to last using moly is the key. I put moly paste during assembly then use the moly gear oil in the creeper.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

Better take a look at the transmission and final drives. You are going to need a couple gallons of Hytran.

The final drives are seperate than the tranny. They take 90 wt gear oil right? The tranny is the oil tank for the hydraulics it gets hytran. These is a hydraulic oil at tsc that exceeds hytran.

Once it was available, IH called out Hy-Tran for the final drives.

Why did IH put hydraulic oil in the finals? It doesn’t soften the mesh of the teeth that much on the engagement?

Why not? It is a better lubricant.

Got the creeper rebuilt and reinstalled last weekend. Carburetor cleaning and rebuild this morning and it was off to the races! Mowed 4 acres with it today!

The mowing experience on a 184 is fantastic! I hope you had an enjoyable day of mowing on your new ride!

It was very comfortable to operate and felt much more sure-footed on side-slopes than my standard Cub and Farmall B felt while mowing. That said, I think I'll stick to my large zero-turn mower for the sake of speed alone.

The front gas tank mount was broken loose from the tank. Not wanting to weld on the tank or get too crazy with a repair, I noticed the front mount provided a handy lip for a strap. I put a piece of rubber between the mount and the tank and banded it with mechanic's strap.

I got the charging system working again after finding a bad connection at the large harness connector under the dash. The creeper gear seems to be holding its oil and all is working really good. All I need to do is get a proper battery (currently using a small lawn mower battery I had laying around) and one headlight, and this thing will be good to go!

Here are some photos of the overall tractor. My new gas cap is on the way and should be here soon.

Great looking 184! She certainly has all the options.
Check the rear work light. It may be a combo. It should glow red on Dim and Bright, then go to bright white when on Rear.
The red is a separate bulb (clear bulb with a red lens) "behind" the pancake light within the housing.
