got the new fluid installed in my TO-35 today,
GL-1 from NAPA, they have both 1 gal and 5 gal containers.
lift appears to work fine.
I bought a small bottle of zinc additive, I figure they have taken the zinc out of the GL-1 oil, so the zinc might help the old parts slip and slide a little better, w
would you add it to the hyd/trans sump oil or not???
I did find in my tractor notes, that the last time I changed the hyd/trans fluid was 1998, so I was way over due.
but, the fluid looked ok draining out, not as clean as the new fluid, but not milky looking,
my tractor almost never sets out and it has new tight fitting shifter lever boots.
as I was test driving it around tonight, I noticed the amp meter was not reading charge, discharge with the lights on.
so the dance never ends, fix one thing and something else is waiting in line.
keeps me off the streets.
