MF 135 burns more oil than gas

JVfarm What oil do you recommend I use for my Massey Ferguson 135? I just bought it and almost immediately changed the oil and now it uses more oil than gas. I refilled it with 30 weight oil. Is this right for east Texas (temp ranges from 25-105)? Any advice on why I'm using so much oil would be appreciated.
GEEBEE We use 15-40 in all of ours but straight 30 weight would also work. Ya need to find out if its burning it (blue smoke, fouled plugs) or is it leaking out. First thing is to check that the weep hole at bottom of bellhousing is clear and has not been blocked by someone hiding a leak, cotter pin should move freely. If you decide its burning it you will have suspect worn rings, valves etc. Good luck.
