684 Hytran change


Pop

Recommended Posts

The OM says there are three drain plugs for my early 684.  Any idea on what size receptacle will be needed to catch the volume out of each location? I know it holds 9 gallons total, just wondering if a 5 gal pan will hold each location. Thanks.IMG_1572.thumb.jpeg.fb10943875d3985c78078b2b96661aed.jpeg

Thanks all, Thinking I have a clear picture now.  Grab another bag of oil dry tomorrow.  Now I just need to talk myself into spending $28/gallon for hytran.

Oil dry? You don’t have more than one pail?

Agree with @HydroTek, make sure it is the Premium version. My Dad and brother have used it for years in the IH Doncaster 54,74,84,95 and 3230 tractors.
If it was a newer model with hydraulic clutches then Hyran.

Only questioning the hydraulic clutch statement. What do you call the pto, mfd and ta clutches. Actually it was the brakes in these tractors that caused IH to upgrade from R4 to R5. That remained unchanged until Case started to play with it to work in their tractors.

Exactly!

If the tractor can’t do enough work to justify an oil change with Hy-Tran, it’s not worth having. Even if the tractor supply oil is half price, it’s a savings of less than $150 on an oil change that should last for years.

A lot of changes to Hy-Tran since that tractor was made. I doubt any of them were for the benefit of this tractor. Was only questioning hydraulic clutches as a criteria.

For the record. IH recommended oil change annually or 1000 hours whichever came first.

Seen oil so yellow from old age , that it must have been the original -- the old iodine color

Not many came thru the shop for annual oil changes -- would have been nice tho
...usually transmission failure was the cause of the oil change

For a tractor that is not used much -- just keep a eye on the oil when you check the level -- wipe the stick with a white towel or better with your fingers -- smell the oil and feel it for "slickness" -- check the color

Use these determinations for the change interval

My local IH specialist (independent) can get the 684 in next week.  He’ll do fuel, engine filters, hydraulic plus fluids.  I’ve done this work in the past, but might actually stop raining long enough for me to do some farming.  I’ll get his thoughts on hytran  and 15w40 in the crankcase.  I’d sure like to stock one motor oil for all tractors.  I’m satisfied this one’s a keeper so ready to get the work done. Really impressed with this unit.  Perfect size loader machine.  Thanks for all the feedback.

What other tractors do you have? Will you be putting that multi grade oil in every single engine that you have? Car, truck, weed eater, lawnmower, chain saw, etc.

My point exactly... the "I only want to keep one kind of oil on the property" argument doesn't make sense.
