while in your case, a dipstick will probably work best,

on pipe threaded level plugs with the room,

you can also use Farmall's

idea of a petcock/drain valve, so you can check a level without tools.

(also handy on pipe threaded drain plugs on occasional use tractors that don't see high drain condensation water out before using the tractor)

 Re: Checking oil levels in reply to NoNewParts, 07-30-2013 06:45:38  
I made the dip stick yesterday, looks like it is going to work on the transmission but not on the axle housing. Too much stuff to get around in the housing.

So this has raised another question, does the oil move back and forth between the transmission and the rear axle housing?

The tractor is a 1973 4000 gas model that has been set up to be an orchard tractor.

The way the Owners manual reads the oil needs to be checked in both the transmission and the rear axle housing. But I have found that the Owners manual was written to cover several models.
Thank you guys for the help you have been. I am pretty much of an amuter with these modern tractors.
