OK, my I&T manual tells me that the transmission/differential on a 101 Junior takes 24 US quarts (almost 23 liters) of gear lube. So there is one large fill plug at the top of the transmission cover plate so I assume the gear lube in the tranny and the differential are common.

Is my assumption correct?

Continuing on ..... I see two drain plugs ...... one in the bottom of the transmission area and a second one at the bottom back of the differential. I assume that removing both of these plugs will drain all the gear lube from the transmission and differential right?

So then I add 24 US quarts of 80w90 gear lube and run the tractor. Once that is all done (and for the next ten years), how do I check the oil level in the transmisison/differential? There is no pipe plug on the sides, front or back of the transmissison/differential housing to do this.

There must be a way of doing it, maybe someone can tell me?

My 101 JR took 6 gallons to fill as directed, and it had been flushed, clean and dry. Yes the differential and tranny share fluid, but the bearing bolster in between makes it necessary for both drain plugs to get it all. I think I recall there being a pipe plug on the right side to check the fluid level, but I'll have to go look see if I have one on my '46. Steve

Thanks Stevie ..... actually I have had two 101 Jr tractors years ago and changed the oil in both and am sure I found out how to check the oil. When I sold one, the operator's manual went with it. This tractor isn't nearby to check for me but I might get out today to take another look, especially right rear location, There's gotta be some way to do it. I know the oil in it seems very thin and is a rusty brown color. Please reply again if you find out any more details.

My manual said it was right rear. So, just behind and mostly below the axle protrusion on the right side, there it was. The straight metal in the pic is the frame for my home-made 3 point.

I checked our Junior today actually and found the same plug. Took it out for a few seconds, lots of oil in there but pretty ugly stuff, sometimes I wonder if it might be original ..... how many farmers back in the day changed the trans/diff oil? I'm going to change it. Where do you live Stevie? Things are getting cold up here in Central Alberta over the next few months. Post a photo of your hitch set up, I'd like to see that. Here's the tractor I refer to, a fellow donated it to our tractor club and yes, the rear tire is on backwards, we know that ....... ha!

I'm in N. Idaho, about 80 miles from the Canadian border. I'll stick a pic in here of my 3 point. I broke the rock shaft this summer lifting a stuck land plane. Showed me where my welds needed to be better. I moved last fall, so the tractor stayed out in the cold until I could get my new shop up and running. Plans are to work on it this winter: Fix 3 point, put a wide front on it, and finish mounting the loader.

I actually found a NOS pump at Surplus Center that was an exact fit behind the governor. Not enough output for the loader, but does the 3 point very well. I'm mounting another, bigger pump off the front of the engine for the loader.
