gear oil

Postby sanford » Thu Feb 23, 2017 3:40 pm

How do I know when the transmission is filled with oil on my 1965 IHC? Very new to this.

There is a plug on the left side of the transmission, about 2 or so inches up from the bottom of the transmission. When gear oil drips out, transmission/differential are full.

Welcome to the site.

With another post or two you can access and down load free manuals, above - top of page. First one to down load is the operators manual.

You probably are already aware, but if you haven't changed the gear oil in the transmission, you might want to do that. Even if your cub is stored under cover, condensation can get in it and cause the oil to become milky. If it is outdoors, a bit more water can enter around the gear shifter. Drain is on the bottom front of the block, and when you refill it (through the large plug on top behind the shifter), first remove the small "fill level" plug on the left side of the block that Eugene mentioned. It only takes 3 1/2 PINTS, so when it starts running out the left hole, it is "full".

The little pipe plug is the level full indicator, that others have referred to.

Welcome to the website. Here is the 1965 Cub owner's manual. There is a table of contents on page 1, makes it easier to use on the internet. The lubrication section starts on page 59, it tells about all the oil levels in the Cub.
The experts on here say you should read it, if you never have before.
