I am new to tractors but own a IH 184 LB. Wtere do you look to find the trans and hub fluid levels? Also where are the drain plugs for the hubs and transmission. Have changed all the filters. Would these be on the bottom of the hubs in the back . Are these plugs identified by the squair recess in the plug ?I removed them both left and right. along with one in the center of the rear of the rear housing. nohing came out. If these are the correct ones , should I fill till till the fluid begins to run out ?

Welcome to the Forum!

Take some time and read through a few threads to acquaint yourself with the Forum:

After you’ve logged your 2nd post on the Forum, you'll have access to the all the PDF Manuals on this site. There’s a few ways to do that:
  • From a desktop or laptop, go to "Quick Links" in the upper left corner of your screen. Hit that and a pull-down appears where you'll find "PDF Manuals".
  • You can also go to “Cub Info” in the upper toolbar, then hit “Rudi’s Manuals”. From there, you can access a variety of information.
  • If you're using a phone, go to the "Links Directory" (second category down the main page). Once in "Links Directory" , scroll down to the second section "Tractor Parts & Manuals" and you'll find them there.

You'll be able to download an Owner's Manual (very strongly recommended) and any service manuals that interest you. Implement Manuals are also available.

Might also enjoy reading through this thread: What to do with a Cub you just brought home

There are a lot of good threads dealing with Cub repair and maintenance in the How To Forum. Located here: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=11

We’d encourage you to take the Safety Test located in the Safety Forum: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=68084

On your 184, you should have a drain plug on the bottom of the transmission that isn't available on the early 154 tractors. This will not drain the final drives as these are separate reservoirs and would need the pans removed. It does take quite a bit of Hytran to refill the transmission. It is almost easier to remove the shifter and fill the transmission from the top. The final drives need to be filled through the fill plugs.

Also, I am not sure if your tractor has a creeper. Look for a handle by your left calf while seated. If it does, then this also would need a fluid replacement with Hytran.
