Default Re: Just rebuilt transmission

Hi Delco

This is for you have regained your composure.


You drain the oil by dropping the pan.

Your shop just gave it their best shop.

Mechanic labor costs money today.

Then you add knowledgeable about old stuff and that is pushing things a little.

Stop by your shop and ASK why they recommended farm tractor oil.

Maybe they have a darn good reason.

Hydraulic oil is sort of all the same.In a way.Auto type probably has some specialized features to it.Recover from overheating.Corrosion resistance. Who knows?

List your 'symptoms' and take it back to them and see what they do.

Little much to expect them to know the adjustment procedure by heart when the last one they did was probably 20 years ago.

Hope this helps.
