Where do you check the Transmission and Rear End oil level on a Minnie R model? I can't find a witness plug anywhere on mine. It is a 1946 R. Would appreciate some help

If I remember right the oil level plug should be back of the belt pully.

There is one behind the pully but it is at the bottom and just forward of the right foot rest. I assumed it to be a drain plug. Thanks for the response.

The drain plug should be underneath by the drawbar. Plug on side is for oil level. Take it loose and see if oil comes out.

Thanks Larry. I have been away from the computer for awhile due to too much going on. I checked the plug you said and it is low. I want to drain all of the old fluid and put in new. I know there is a million ideas on fluids these days, but is the hydraulic/trans combo fluid o.k. to put in this thing. I'm sure in 1946 it was heavy gear fluid of some sort. Also I can't find a filler plug on this tractor. I'm new to the molines as a collector. I grew up on a farm where Dad had an R and a Z so it was the first thing I ever drove as a kid, but we are talking 60 years ago. Thanks for your information.

There is no plug as such. There is a 3 cornered plate on top near the shifter. Take it of and pour in your new fluid. I would NOT use Trans-Hyd. Too light. It originally had 160. But for what you are probably going to use it for I would put in 80=90.

O.k. I've seen this plate. Glad you told me as I was going to use the new stuff. I'll put in 80-90 unless I can find some heaver oil. Don't recall ever seeing the 160. Not using it for anything but shows. Thanks for your help.
