I flushed and changed trans with 90 weight gear oil. The book says 3&half pints. I have put 2 quarts in and it's still not coming out check hole. Should I fill till it comes out check hole or stop now.

Thanks for help

Stop now! Something is wrong if it is not coming out by now. Anything over 3½ pints will start leaking out of the axle seals.

Did you check to make sure no debris is blocking the inside of the check plug hole on the side of the transmission housing?

And are you sure you are looking at the proper hole for checking?

Here is the small plug for the fluid level. It is not easy to see or find the first time (left side has less clearance)! If this is what you are using, poke a coat hanger wire in it as suggested.

Is the tractor sitting level? Front to back and side to side?
