John deere dealer closed today. Want to change the oil on my low hour 802 and put in break in oil till 100 hrs.
Local NAPA has quarts of Royal Purple Break-In oil. Pretty sure its 10w30 but i could be wrong.
Is this oil good for my 802?

THANKS!

Nowhere on the RP site does it say its for diesel applications. I think you need to just pony up freight and have the JD stuff shipped in. I think the RP is for gasoline applications. Got any other brand tractor dealerships around that might have diesel rated break in oil?

Howdy,

The main thing about any break-in oil.
Non-Detergent oil, additive for the type of fuel for break-in.

John Deere Break-in Plus has all that in it. Lister-Petter break-in oil does too.

Just visit them on Monday for a gallon jug.

Thank you both for replying. I agree and decided to hold off. My
rush was because it was a CHILLY high 50’s in upstate NY this morning and it hasnt gotten much better. I wanted to turn on the 5k watt electric space heater i have in my garage. I figured it would be great to warm up the genset and burn off some cobb webs and warm up the house for a few hours.
I’m sure i’ll have the opportunity soon enough.
In the mean time, i have to see if my local deere dealer has the stuff in stock and find time to drive up and get it. Schedule conflicts suck, i work 730 to 430 and those are basically my local deere dealers hours.
I will work it out. Thanks again.

I fired up the wood stove this morning for the wife and kids, so I hear ya... was mid 40s last night. Made for real nice weather here though, about 58 today working on the MEP in my garage.

This weather is my jam. I used to live for the summer. Now i work outside all day for a living, and hate being soaked from sweat by 10am. As i’ve matured, i have grown to LOVE the fall. It just came a bit fast for me. It was 95° last week. It’s barely 61° right now. Even the dogs who also LOVE the fall are chilled. Snuggling tightly to us on the couch for warmth!
