Filling hy-gard fluid in my '78 2640. I know that tractor needs to be level and running at idle. What I am not sure about is do I read the level with the dipstick resting on top of the threads or screw it down and back to get the correct level?

Thanks!

It would depend if you want an average reading or a precise reading. Either way would suit my taste. I suppose the temperature of the oil would also be a factor. I would just make sure it stays between the marks.

Tim, the owners manual I got when I bought my 2640 said to check the trans oil with the engine running.... setting on the threads.
