Postby kully560 » Fri Apr 17, 2020 7:08 am

can I use 85-140 gear oil in the transmission to maybe slow a leak?

Check to make sure it's not overfilled now. That can cause leaks. Remove the level plug and see how full it is. Cant imagine heavier gear oil would help at all.

I know it is probably the front seal , been putting it off for a while now as my property is all level . only when I visit the neighbor down the road a piece where there is a hill it will leak going down as it is a very steep grade . shifts fine no problem just thought as I bought 2 gallons of 85-140 gear oil the other day from tsc store for my troy built rotor tiller to change the gear oil it only need 1 gallon so I still have 1 gallon left over and thought maybe throw that in if it will help a little.

The transmission capacity is 3.5 PINTS. Make sure yours is not overfilled.

Use 80/90 or hy-trans.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

The tranny takes hydraulic oil? Gear oil will be too thick in colder climates.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

I personally would use the 85W-140 and not worry about it. At 0 degrees is there that much difference in 75, 80, or 85 viscosities? I'm pretty sure I won't be in the seat if a Cub Transmission gets to 212 degrees to see what the 140 viscosity is all about.
