oil for a ferguson 1954

Sarah S Does anyone know what type of oil I should use in my 1954 TEA 20 Ferguson Tractor. Also interested in the Horsepower and type of transmission fluid. It is a 4 cylinder.

I appreciate it.

bontai Joe In 1954, I am reasonably sure that straight 30 weight oil was the recommendation. I would think that any 10W-30 would be fine as ALL motor oils of today are greatly improved over 1954 specs. As to HP, something like 16 HP at the drawbar and 22 at the motor. I am not sure what lubricant to use in the transmission, but it might be listed on a tag somewhere on the tranmission housing?
rich4 The tested horse power was 20.7hp drawbar and 24hp at the PTO. The original 30 weight recommendation for the transmission was non-detergent as the transmission oil also was the hydraulic oil. I would stay close to the original oil recommendation. A high quality HY/TRANS oil would also work. Stay away from a detergent motor oil, it may affect the hydraulics functions.
jeff I have a ferguson to35 , the oil plug says 90W for summer and 120W for winter , can you guys tell me the type of oil/hyd fluid to use and how much ?? please, thanks
