I was wanting to know if a 44 A has a commom oil resivior with the transmision and engine like the early D's. What is the best way to tell if there is water in the oil. Where are the check holes for the engine oil and tranny oil. Kinda new to the green ones. usually ness around with the red ones but want something with a hand clutch for the kids. Give me the short education on Styled A's

Thank you

no, engine has its oil and the trany has its oil (80W90) remove the oil plug for the engine and see if it leaks water. if it dont and the oil is not gray theres not water in it. but these tractors are good for sweating moister in to the cases. good luck . Bob

Best way to check for water in the oil is to remove the crankcase drain plug.

Photobucket



The engine oil is checked at the oil level test cock on the right side of the tractor under the pulley.

Open and fill until it drips.

The transmission oil is checked at the fill plug.

Photobucket

Fill to the bottom of the threads.

Hope this helps.

While you're checking for water don't forget the small plug at the bottom of the reduction gear. I think it takes about a pint of engine oil in the smaller plug on top of the housing. I check mine every year or two and always get some water out of it.

Unless the '44s didn't have the plug, mine's a '51
