I need to top off the hydraulic oil on a new to me 7140. The oil in does not have the smell that is unique to HyTran but is otherwise clean. Do I dare top it off with HyTran? This tractor seems to be very well maintained so I don't have any reason to believe someone put has junk oil in it, I just don't think it is HyTran..

Try and get hold of the previous owner and see what he used. If you are in that much doubt, drain it and start over with new oil and filters and then you will know what is in it. By doing this you will be good to go for several years, depending on how many hours you will put on each year.

When I buy a used tractor, all the oils and filters get changed even if it is marked when last done. Some machinery jockeys will mark the filters with about 10 less hours to make you think you are really getting a deal. Funny when you pull the dip stick. the oil has the consistancy of tar and filter tops are very rusty with 10 hours on the service job.

ANYTHING I buy gets ALL filters/fluids, no exceptions! You simply do not know! You will feel better after cutting the filters open and doing lab test as well as inspecting the new purchase.

The old Oil and Oil Filter change commercial slogan "Pay me Now to change your oil and filter or Pay me Later!". Catchy slogan and one that I have always remembered and lived by.I don't have to ba a certified mechanic to change my own oil and filters. A lot of Equipment Dealers offer discount on filters at least once a year. This year during our Customer appreciation days we offered 15% off on filters and 5% off on oil for a week in February.

In my opinion there is no money better spent than following equipment manufactures recommendations on oil and filter changes and using factory approved oil and filters.

I have a 7120 in the shop that was recently purchased by the current owner.
The only filters that have been changed since 1998 are the engine oil and fuel filters. (that's over 3000 hours too)

It's getting all new fluids and filters among alot of other things.

I am with all the other guys just change it, use Case IH Hy Tran and filters only. You can get an empty 55 gal barrel for your used oil and a hyd hose with no end on one side , plug it into no#1 remote. Put the hose in the barrel , start the tractor pull the remote until the oil starts flowing. When you can hear the hyd pump starting to suck air shut the tractor down and you can finish draining the plugs under the rearend and transmission into 5 gal pails.

This will save you some time and effort .
