Gear Oil Quanity

Postby Ron » Wed Feb 04, 2004 7:38 pm

Hi All,

I just replaced the oil seal on the PTO shaft because it was leaking.
I drained and serviced the gear box/diff with new gear oil.
I looked up the quanity required and came up with about 3 qts needed.
If this is the correct amount needed, then it appers that the reason the oil was leaking out around the seal was because it had been over filled.

Is 3 quarts the approx amount needed to refill the gear box??

From the cub info section of this website:


Fuel Tank 7 1/2 Gallons
Water Cooling System 9 3/4 qt.
Crankcase Pan 3 qt.
Transmission Case 3 1/2 pt.
Rear Axle Drive Housing (each) 1 3/4 pt.
Steering Gear Housing 3/4 pt.
Air Cleaner Oil Cup (Donaldson) 1/2 pt.
Air Cleaner Oil Cup (United) 1/3 pt.
Belt Pully Housing 1/3 pt.
Touch Control System 4 1/4 pt.
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

As BD pointed out, 3 1/2 pints, not quarts. There is a level plug on the left side of the transmission. If oil is higher than the plug, it is too full.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
