Trans oil drain

Postby john2189 » Mon Mar 02, 2020 11:13 am

I removed the back plate of the differential to drain the oil. I assume that will drain the trans oil too?

I also found a broken gear tooth. I looked at all the diff gears all ok so I removed the shifter to look at those gears. Again all ok. I’m guessing that it was an old problem and was repaired and the broken tooth moved from the bottom of the trans to the bottom of the differential case.

Rear cover removal will drain the differential and transmission. While you are at it, replace the hydraulic filter.

If the location of the broken tooth still existed, you would know it when you operated the tractor in the appropriate gear.
I have an excuse. CRS.

My int154 #1(first purchase) has a 1/8 npt pipe plug on the bottom of the tranny housing. I’m not sure if my other two 154’s or all of the 154’s have a drain plug.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

Might want to also pull the pans off the final drives and put some fresh oil in there as well.
