Howdy
I have a series 2(?) D17 gas tractor (ser.#32446) that I just acquired. Manual is on order, but I haven"t received it yet. Want to change out the fluids on the ol" gal so here are my questions:

--There is a dipstick with a breather cap on the right side of the torque tube. What does it check and what type/amount of fluid goes in there? Also, where is the drain plug for this compartment?

--There is a dipstick with a breather cap to the left of the gear shift lever. What does it check and what type/amount of fluid goes in there? Where would the drain plug for that compartment be?

--There is a dipstick WITHOUT a breather cap located under a cap screw on the UPPER LEFT of the transmission cover plate (left of the gearshift lever). What does it check and what type/amount of fluid goes in there? The drain plug would be where for that?

Final drives and engine oil, I have covered. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

RS torque tube-universal hytran, it's hydraulic pump compartment.


On the other 2, I can't remember left from right, front most one takes Hytran, too, for the power director. I think the rear most one is for the transmission/rear, takes 80w90, if I recall right.

If I am wrong, someone will correct me...

Thanks for the info. Any idea of capacities for each?

Just a guess, Hyd compartment 5 gallons, PD a little less, and Tranny even less. Don't want to over fill them, as the oil blows out of the breathers, if it expands, as it warms.

A page from the manual.
I use HyTran in both the hydraulics and power director which is probably better than the non-detergent 20W oil originally specified.
Many people use Hytran in the transmission as well.
As a matter of fact, I intend to switch to Hytran in the tranny at the next change.
