Use Super Tractor Oil Universal (STOU) API 10W-30, 15W-30 or 15W-40 and GL4 in both engine and transmission/hydraulics. Use only mineral oil, do not use a synthetic or semi-synthetic oil

It's a good thing to do, buy an operators handbook for the tractor which has all the information you will need to operate, service and maintain the tractor. Original ones occasionally come up on eBay or you can purchase a copy from the club shop.
