I recently purchased a Farmall 130
The tranny gear box seems to have quite the whine when in gear, all shifts and runs fine. I believe these are straight cut gears, anyway to quiet the whine?

They are noisy. Make sure you have the proper amount of gear oil in the tranny. 90wt or 85 to 140wt is fine.

There is a small pipe plug on the left side of the tranny near or may be hidden by the brake rod. Remove it and with the tractor level fill the tranny until it begins to seep out. If you do not know the history of the tractor or it has sit outside in the weather alot it may be wise to drain the tranny, drain plug is below pto shaft, and refill with new oil.

I think it holds about 5 quarts. The net will tell you.
