    Default I'm new to Deuce world.

    Hi guys,
    I bought a m135 1956 this summer, falled in love with the model, but i didnt know exaclty what was that truck before i purchase, That's unexpected **** of a truck !
    It's come with the 302 engine and hydramatic tranny.

    I found some of the manuals, ( TM-8024, TM9-1819, TM9-8025,TB9-2855 ) But, i cant find clear specification about the engine and tranny lube i should use.

    I took out the radiator yesterday, im going to try to weld it today. The lower tank opened, probably due to the pressure valve overflow pipe was pinched.

    Anyway, if you have any information about the lube chart it would be very appreciated.

    I'm from Quebec province by the way, my english may be not sound very good

    Congratulations on your purchase. The lube order “LO” calls for OE30 (OE means oil engine) for the engine, which translates to 10W30. Most of us use Dexron ATF in the transmission, which is 10 weight oil with additives needed by automatic transmissions.

    Welcome to the Forum!

    Since you live in the North, and depending on if you plan to use the truck in the winter months will determine the weight of oil used. Just one thing, what ever oil you choose make sure that it has some kind of zinc content. Or if not an additive should be used for anti wear for start up.

    Fuel will also make a difference as no lead is used any longer and that helped with valve protection. Sticking valves can create major headaches.

    You can't still get lead additive can you? I know on the old cars one would do a valve job and put in harden seats.

    Hardened seats are only half the battle. Counter sinking valves can ruin a cylinder head in no time if run hard heating up the cast iron.

    Second is the intake valves sticking. The lead years ago, late 70's into the eighties was eliminated. The lead acted like a lubricant for the seat and the valve stem. I have seen it up close what an engine does after sitting. The new gasoline does not for lack of a better term have a long shelf life. If you run the fuel out on shutdown the fuel will not collect on the valve stem and glue itself into valve guide. That is why you see additive buildup on the intake valves.

    That is a good reason to use a lead substitute or Murphy's, Stable, or many others. But that only buys a little extra time. At best only a few pushrods get bent, and worse on close clearance valves and pistons, valves get bent. That is why you have to use the gas in its entirety, if it stinks bad replace it. And then there is carburetor problems....
