A photograph or diagram showing where to check the levels of each and every fluid would be very helpful to me about now. Where each filler opening is would also be much appreciated. Any ideas where I might find one ? Does such a diagram or photo exist anywhere ?

I have figured out a few but not sure about the transmission and final drive. Do they use the same filler opening ?

I think I figured out the PTO level is the smaller plug below halfway down on the right side at the rear of the PTO housing. Can anyone verify that ?

OPS I see you say a 1958 model do you have a 400B then as the big Racine 400 I posted pics of was not made in 1958

Yes I did but it covers several other model CASE tractors as well as the 400. I was hoping it would have more info on the 400.

Where do I get the manual that has the photographs and text shown above ? Those look like what I have.

My mistake this is a 1956 large frame Racine built 400 model. Not a 1958 as the title of this thread erroneously says.

That didn't come out right. I believe I have the same fill openings, drain plugs and level checking plugs as what shows in those photographs. Yes, I agree I need to get a better manual.

No problem, Go to a local cih dealer and give them this order number and they can order you the correct ops manual, if you have a gas engine, they will have to look up the # for the dsl version, or if they cant post back and I can look that one up also, as I do have the book to give me the correct ordering #'s for all Case AG equipment
