On my loader cub I cleaned the trans with kerosine.. ( some guys say drain it and fill it up to the plug with Kerosine and drive it around for 5 minutes in 3rd...And drain it...) I didn't do that I sprayed the gears off as I had put new seals in the finals and filled them with Red Line Shock proof gear oil ...Anyhow I then filled the transmission appropriately with Red Line ( Shock Proof) and zippered it all up...The stuff is expensive but reduced the noise tremendously...This was a tractor that had set outside and I bought to refurbish it...It still makes noise but nothing like the initial rumble...From cleaning ? From Red Line ? Both ?....I don't know , but thats what I did...Dave

You can get 90 wt GL1 at Tractor Supply. It is all mineral Ford Tractor Transmission fluid made by Traveller.

When re-attaching the transmission housing to the front housing with the four or five bolts, I can"t remember where the two short bolts go and where the two longer bolts go. May I get someone to clear this matter up and inform me of the proper bolt location.

The 2 shorter ones WITHOUT nuts go on the top into the block, the other ones have nuts and go all the way through block and torque tube.

Ooops Shane...... I wasn't clear. I am reconnecting the Rear Section of the cub at the transmission after a rear section split. There are five bolts connecting the transmission case to the aft end of the clutch housing. I think there are some short and some long, and I don't recall which go at a specific location. Can you help me with this? Thanks for your help.

Pretty sure the short ones go in top there as well.

Yes, short ones on top. I believe you will find the flange is not as thick at the top as at the bottom. With the bolts in place, you should find the threaded ends of all stick out about the same distance.

I got a engine hoist at pep boys cheap. Along with my tractor jack stand it will work. I been thinking about a gantry style I beam that can hold two trolleys to lift both ends of the tractor at the same time to spread them.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.
