Massey Ferguson Oil Grade
|Greg||Purchased a Massey-Ferguson 135, with a Perkins diesel engine. The shop manual that I just bought does not mention the recommended engine oil. The tractor is 1966 vintage I believe. Can some one give me some specs on the grade of oil recomended for tis tractor.
|GEEBEE||I use 15/40 diesel rated oil in all of mine.
|Greg||Thank You, thats what I was thinking but wanted a little more imput.
|Ken||15/40 in gas engines also? Is it normal for the massey 135 3 cyl perkins gas to be noisy esp. at idle like a dsl? Is the lower end the same as the 3 cyl perkins dsl? Runs good uses no oil, not necessarily noisy at rpm or under load.
|GEEBEE||Yes Ken, 15-40 is good for the gas also, Shell Rotella is a good choice. I haven't known the Perkins gas to be noisy unless the valves need adjusting. The Perkins gas is the same bottom end as the diesel, con rods and pistons are different.
|Dan DePriest||I have a 1968 MF 150 Perkins Diesel. What type oil grade should I use is Shell Rotella 15-40 ok..
|GEEBEE||Dan, Shell Rotella 15/40 is the best choice
|Calvin, Clinton, SC||15W40 Rotella safe in all diesels, 5W40 in extreme cold climates or Amsoil synthetics. Gas engine oil has "S*" (ie SC, SG) rating (S= spark ignition), Diesel oil "C*" rated (ie CC,CG),(C=compression ignition), diesel oil safe in gas engines, gas oil not good in diesel or turbo applications, stick with one brand, I use Wal-Mart 15W40, has yellow label and was about $.50 cents more a quart than regular oil, make sure has "C*" rating.
