Fluid level

Postby Bob Roraback » Wed Jul 28, 2004 12:37 pm

Just behind the shifter on my Cub is a filler plug, when I remove it to check there is no visible fluid. My question is what fluid goes in there and how high do I fill it. I hate to sound stupid but I havent received my manuals yet and I am winging it. Thank you for help, Bob

The fluid should be Hy-Tran or a suitable gear lube. The amount is 3 1/2 pints or 56 oz.

There is a level plug on the lower left side of the transmission. You remove the plug and then pour oil in the top hole behind the shifter until it just comes out the level plug hole. The oil may be 80W90 Gear oil or Hy-Tran.

As you wait for your manuals, you can see the online versions at the Cub Manual Server. As in the first thread you posted - the links to the Owners Manual is there.....

Have fun playing with your Cub :lol:
