Brian, how does this translate into available products? - I can't find the Castrol Agri Mulit-use mentioned on the old bulleting board - only the multi-purpose with brake additives.

Any recommendations for which greases to use too?

I have been advised that S.A.E 20W = ISO 46 and S.A.E 30W = ISO 68. Any advice which, if either, would be most suitable?
Just bought a Fordson Super Dexta... Where's my 12lb micro adjuster?

I'm using Castrol Agri Power - 15W40 for years now. Easy to find

Link to the Castrol Side =>

The only oil not to use is Castrol Agri MP ! ! !


Please note that BP and Castrol is the same...

I received a very nice email from J. Mellema, who sent me this spec sheet:

Dexta oil specs.

The document is not directly from Ford, but refers to Dagenham. There's also some other info about the Dexta on it.
