Questions about 1961 Case backhoe loader

Questions about 1961 Case backhoe loader

I have a few questions about a 1961 Case 430 backhoe loader.
1.What type of power steering fluid does it take?
2.The right back wheel seems to lock first when braking, how can I adjust it?
3.What is a easy to find replacement for the hydraulic oil filter?

AJ All the oil specs have changed from what would be in the handbook for that machine back in 61, the oil now used in the power steering and hydraulics is Case TCH,any good quality Hy-Trans oil will do instead,I looked up the filter for you and you could try Napa for Fil 1518 Hydraulic filter,the power steering filter is inside the reservoir cannister,that filter is Napa Fil 1653,to adjust the brakes secure the machine and go under it and trace the mechanical linkage back from the pedals,you will see a rod on each side going from the pedal linkage to the brake housing,on the pedal end of the rod are the adjusting nut behind a jam nut,adjust the brakes by loosing the jam nut and tighten the adjuster up just till it starts to stop the wheel,back off two full turns and lock the jam nuts,you may have to play with them to get them even,good luck with your new machine.
