Cub 154 hydraulics

Postby oakley86 » Thu Jun 06, 2019 3:15 pm

Still tying to find the differential drain plug on my cub 154 lo boy. Want to flush the system, but can't find the plug. I do find the fill plug. Can't find any video or diagram that shows it. Could it be hidden by the 3 point hitch. I flushed it once by siphoning out all I could get, but sure would like to do it right. Any suggestions ?http://www.farmallcub.com/phpBB2/posting.php?mode=post&f=31#

You have to remove the back cover to the differential to drain the hydraulic system and that also drains the differential and transmission.

Edit, 7 June. The hydraulic system reservoir/transmission/differential has a filter that cleans the fluid. I would change the filter on a regular basis and top off the tractor's rear end.

Hey, thanks. I figured there had to be a simple explanation, but it seems none of the manuals mention it.

The drain plug is a 1/8” pipe plug on the bottom of the tranny it’s centered.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

That's what the owner's manual says.

I have split my 154 and numerous times been under the tractor to work on it. Looked for the transmission drain, didn't find it.

Next time I get the 154 out, I will carefully double check to see if the drain plug is in the described location.

I believe that some 154s did not have a drain plug. One of the hydraulic lines attaches at the bottom and you drain it by unhooking that line.

You might be right not all of them have drain plugs. The hyd suction line is piped in where the drain plug once was. Is there two plugs on the rear tranny cover? One high for the oil level and one low to drain the oil.
