I called the place I bought it from a few minutes ago. The guy was extremely nice and apologetic. I ordered another one that is mailing today and will credit me back for the first one plus return shipping. He said that the float must stuck inside and he rather I send it back than take it apart or have more trouble down the road.

Anyway, nice guy. I appreciated his customer service.

I got home to fill my transmission with new oil and found a bunch of mud in the transmission and rear end. I removed the shifter plate and rear pto shaft cover. Blasted it with brake cleaner and wd-40. Got most of everything out of there and reinstalled the covers. Filled it through the shift plate opening with diesel until it started leaking out. I'm leaving it in there until the new gaskets arrive.

Should the liquid in the trans/rear end leak out through an opening near the brake bands if over full? Seems like dirt and crud could get inside if there are openings.

The transmission only takes 3 1/2 pints of gear oil. If it's overfull or the seals are bad, you will get leakage into the brake cavities. I'm not sure what you meant when you said you filled it until it started leaking out, but I'm guessing you may have put too much in it.

I poured approximately a gallon and a half of diesel in the transmission. Put the shift plate back over the opening and left it.

Owner's Manual (located on Rudi's website; link at top right portion of this page called "Manuals") answers this type of maintenance question. If you've not already done so, please download the Owner's Manual. It'll tell you how much, when, where and sometimes, why... :D

If you have any other questions you can't find answers to in the Manual, let us know.

You should almost have a gallon and a quart on the floor by now. The best way to clean it out is to pour 3 1/2 pints of diesel in the trans and then drive the tractor for about five minutes. That sloshes to fuel over everything and sort of rinses it clean. Then drain the fuel and refill with 3 1/2 pints 80/90. Anything more than that will leak out past the seals as Eugene mentioned.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

There is really no way for me to drive it around at the moment. After I cleaned all the mud out of the transmission and rear end I didn't want to leave it empty. I will be draining the diesel tomorrow and refilling it with Lucas 80-90 when the new gaskets get delivered.

I have received a lot of private messages with helping information, and people offering to help me with this job. I truly appreciate everyone's help.
Thank you.

PMs are nice, but it would be nice if those posters offering help and suggestions would post them to the forum instead so that the suggestions help everyone reading this thread in the future...
