  • GL-1
  • This spring, I plan to change the oil in the transmission, hydraulic, rear axle sumps in my 51 and 52 8Ns.

    For various reasons, I use GL-1 but it's becoming increasingly difficult to find in my area.

    Anyone know of any decent deals these days on GL-1?

  • HiYa Dean-
    I know this isn't what you asked, but here is a post (see LINK) from our archives regarding the GL-1 and the GL-5 grade oils. There is also a ton of other good info in the archives on hydraulic oils. If your concerns are with affects on yellow metal, there is very little yellow metal in N's so not using a GL-1 will not harm anything, and what type of oil depends too on what climate you are in as well. Everyone has their own preference/theories and you can do whatever you wish as it is your tractor. TSC sells, or use to sell I don't know, haven't been in one lately, a GL-1 oil, essentially an SAE90 oil, labeled 'specifically for old Ford Tractors' under their TRAVELLER brand. CNH continues to distance themselves from old Ford Tractors and have discontinued supplying the Ford MC134-D spec'd AMBRA oil.

  • Re: GL-1
  • GL-1 SAE 90w in a 5 gal pail still shows up on NAPA's website, so any NAPA store should be able to order it.

    I don't know if it's the "best deal" but it is harder to find.

  • Also, still available thru TSC.

    It appears to be cheaper than NAPA.

  • That is what I use. It is almost impossible to find. Walmart and Napa had it. Napa gave me something else and said it was just as good. I really wanted GL-1 but had to take what they had.

  • Re: GL-1
  • Walmart used to have it off and on.
    Tractor Supply too.
    Also someone had a part number for it with NAPA.
    You might find it in archives.

  • Re: GL-1
  • In my neck of the woods NAPA always had the best deal on a 5 gallon pail. Lost the part number though when my pc died.

  • Why bother, SMO was just a WWII substitute for the original speced "Mild EP" that was the original lube as well as the post war specified lube. There are many better lubes out there that are readily available and less expensive..
