    jcb 801.4 lubricant - capacities and specs

    just bought a 801.4 with 2400hrs on it, ive ordered a full service kit before i do any work, comprising of air filters (pre and main), fuel filters (both), oil filter and hydraulic filter, basically im wondering what fluids and how much is required, i.e. hydraulic oil, engine oil + coolant?, many thanks!

    The engine will probably be between 4 - 6 litres ... the hydraulic oil wont need changing yet at those hours

    ah thats good to hear :) will a standard 10w40 engine oil be ok? and can i use normal 'blue' antifreeze? i didnt no if the oil would want changing in the hydraulic system cause of the age? despite it hours its a 1996 and i knowthese models suffer from hydraulic pump problems and i wanted to do anything i could to prevent premature failure

    Welcome to the forum wsa,
    according to manual,
    engine holds 3.5L 15/40
    coolant 4.5 L canopy, 5.0 L cab
    fuel 17 L
    hydraulic oil 30 L ISO 46
    got myself one of a similar age a couple of years ago, despite what some members of the forum think to JCB I think its a ******* site better than a SPADE.

    If it's the same as mine hydraulic filler is next to key on the right of seat, could be under a cover unless it's missing like mine.
    It wont look kike a filler, you need an Allen key to undo the 3 screws, be careful because underneath there is a spring that keeps the filter down, take note how it goes, when I got mine the filter was upside down with said spring inside it, doing no good at all.
    I find it easier to lift out the filter while you are topping up the oil, you should have a sight glass behind the dozer lever for your oil level.
    If you want a copy of the manual PM me your email, it has all the grease nipples shown as well.
    Good luck.
