Hydraulic oil filler location

Postby Bill Hudson » Tue Dec 27, 2011 11:46 pm

I've got a 154 in the Cubhouse that is going back together and I'm stumped. Where do you fill the hydraulic oil and how do you check the level? I've gone through the Service Manual, (both hard copy and Rudi's online manuals) I&T manual, and spent plenty of time looking it over. I can't find the dang things. :oops: :oops:

Probably making it far to complicated and will be embarrassed when one of you tell me the obvious.

This is a case of saying "Yes" to a good friend, when I should have said "No." That is one mistake I don't plan to repeat. No more numbered Lo-Boys in the Cubhouse. :) :)

Thanks for your help.

Hydraulics share oil with the transmission/differential. The fill/level plug is on the back cover.

Thanks, Jim. :oops: :oops: I knew it had to be obvious, something I was simply over looking.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong. IIRC . . . you fill it with the engine off?

I've always filled them with the engine off, but it probably doesn't matter much. I fill to the bottom of the hole, run the engine, cycle the hydraulics a few times and re-check, top off if needed.
