||I have a 1984 case 580D backhoe. What type of oil does the shuttle gear box use? Thanks!
||Service manual says Case TCH. If you are doing a complete change (including draining the converter) it holds 2 gallons. Local Case dealer is pushing HY-TRANS. After doing some research and talking with several dealer mechanics I ended up using Castrol UTF bought through my local auto parts store @ $33.00 for 5 gallon pail.
||I use Mobilfluid 424 in all my transmissions and hydraulic systems. It is spec'd to replace hy-tran. It does cost $6.00 per gallon, but it will last forever if it does not get dirty or contaminated with metal flakes (like when a PTO clutch bites it hard). I drain my transmissions and filter the 424 and put it back in as long as it looks good, and does not have the milky color of added water. Of course my tractors take 11 to 12 gallons per change.
