Recommended oil and filter for FX24D

Postby ElliottO » Mon Feb 12, 2018 2:44 pm

Hello again,
Another simple, yet not obvious question, concerning my FX24D. The oil is pitch black. If it needs changing, which oil and filter do you recommend?
See...simple.
Thanks, Elliott

There are others that would work but it wouldn't be right to post them here on Hoye's sight. https://www.hoyetractor.com/PROD/3OILFILTER.htm

Oil in diesels turn black early so it's better to go by hours. The factory recommendation for my model is 100 hrs for oil and 200 for filter. The oil should be brand name, diesel rated, with viscosity suited to the temp (like 15/40). As for filters, it's easy to find equivalent oil ones (though they're longer than the Yanmar ones, which may or may not be a problem) but harder to find generic fuel, hydraulic (if your model has one) and air filters.
