Thanks for the reply. I thought there were seals in at the gearbox and the axle ran dry untill it got out to the final drives and more oil and seals out there, but I dont know to much about it. I can tell you this tractor has been stored at 50 degrees and I don't think it was water , it was black and thick and smelled just like gear oil. THANK YOU !! Paul K in N.H. :oops:


Paul,

What you describe sounds like the original lube... the "good stuff". What hasn't been mentioned for a reason for it being overfilled is often WATER. If you have water in the case, with some lubes it doesn't mix, but just lays on the bottom, raising the level. The advice to change it is good, but you can easily check for water. Loosen the drain plug enough that something comes out around the threads. If it isn't oil, change it.
