pull your tractor onto level concrete
take out the level plugs one time and fill
to the correct level.
Now make a dipstick out of a rod with a 'T' on the top
(so you don't drop it in)
take out your fill plug, and drop your dipstick in the hole.
mark the stick at the proper level.
throw the stick in your toolbox for the next time.
not really an original idea
my 5000 came with a dipstick and no sight plug on the tranny.
when I got it and pulled the dipstick, a large half moon had been wore into the middle of the dipstick from rubbing on a spinning gear.
dipstick must have been bent a little.
It was hanging by a thread, lucky I found it.
So I made a t-handled one to use and pulled the factory one out of the fill cap and threw it away.
(after measuring it carefully)
