TRACTOR LUBRICATION - ENGINE WEAR 380005

With 1,250,000 tractors in use today, the question of tractor engine wear in relation to lubrication becomes a very important study. Yet the problem is a very complex one, as the types of fuels vary greatly, the load conditions and time of continuous operation are seldom the same, dust fall is between two and ten tons per square mile per day, and the operation-service, care and engine rebuilding may be doubtful. Besides this, engine design, combustion rates and bearing materials all add to the variables in selecting the adopted lubricant. Clean air, efficient fuels, adopted lubricant and proper care of operation and service are factors affecting wear of a given tractor engine.
