There is a plug on the top rear of the Powertrol housing.It is made to remove with your hand.It has is round with grip type edges. The operators manual says to use the same weight oil as the engine takes.There is a petcock on the right side that is the full level indicator.Oil should run out when it is full. The operators manual is full of info for regular service and some adjustments for your tractor.There are some reprints out that are very reasonable.Hope this helps.

I have just fully drained my powertrol system in conjunction with replacing the powershaft clutch lubricating pump seals in my 730D. Does any one know for certain if I can substitute tractor hydraulic fluid for the original spec engine oil that the manual calls for as the previous poster points out? I am wondering about compatability of the tractor fluid with traces of the engine oil. I don't imagine tractor hydraulic fluid existed in the day these tractors were made. Would think that tractor hydraulic fluid today would be the logical choice for the powertrol system.

The only problem I see is that hydraulic oil is lighter weight oil and you may not have as much pressure and may see a faster leak down on your lift.

Thanks. I hadn't thought about the viscosity difference, but it is lighter as you say than the 10-30 multivisc that the manual says you can use as well as either 20 or 30 depending on operating temperature.
