WHERE DID IT GO?

Postby DanR » Wed Apr 30, 2008 7:27 am

I know the capacity of the tranny with PTO is 4 1/2 quarts on a SA. I put in 12 quarts and it's still not up to the full plug. It's not on the ground or any signs of a leak. Also, there are no visible fill or drain plugs on the finals. Ideas?

Dan, does the Super A have a level plug down low on the side of the tranny like the cub? I believe the finals are similar to a cub in design and location of fill plugs, and no drain plugs.

Kind of hard to see as the copy is dark, but here it is in illustration 25B. (from Rudi's server)

Is the capacity 4 1/2 quarts or 4 1/2 PINTS? 4 1/2 quarts is more than a GALLON of oil? I don't know the A or Super A very well, but I would think that it CAN'T be that much bigger than the Cub, can it??

Mike,

As you can see by the lubrication page that Jim posted, it's 5 QUARTS. :D

It shows 5 quarts for the crank case, but no quantity for the transmission... The capacity of the engine makes sense because a cub takes 3 quarts in the crank case and the A is a bit bigger than the cub...

Interesting!

To see the capacity, you need to turn the page. This is slightly different than what I quoted, as my quote came from the Cub/140/240/340 PM Manual.

Mystery solved. The plugs on the finals were covered up by brackets. Had to take them off. The plug on the tranny was indead behind the left brake rod. Had to take the rod loose to get at the plug. I drained about 6 quarts out so 5-6 would be correct. Now the darn thing won't start. No spark. I'll order a tune up set. Thanks everyone for your help. I knew I could count on the Cub guys.
