Greetings. Need help confirming location of site plug for hydraulic fluid level. See attached photo. Believe plug is to be removed, hyd fluid added until level is at plug opening, then replace plug. Appreciate your help. Thanks.

If it were any closer it'd bite your heel! It's the ring that's hanging down by your right heel on the side, behind the pedal for the diff lock. The reason it doesn't look like a round cover is because it's behind the plate for the 3 pt. response.

The plug you refer to is too high for oil level, just use the dipstick, it is old fashioned but accurate! The plug in your pic is for the fitment of a speed controller, mostly used in Germany and some other European countries. Sam

Sam,

Thanks. You're correct, the dip stick is much easier to use now that we've found it. My dad used to say to me,"If it were a snake it would have bit you." I appreciate your help. Now that we've found the dip stick and determined that the hyd fluid is full, perhaps I could enlist your help solving another problem. I'll create another post to discuss my next issue. Thanks again. DD

David,

Thanks. That is one clean tractor. From the looks of it, restored to show room condition. My dad used to say to me, "If it were a snake it would have bit you." This is a great resource. I appreciate your help. Now that we've found the dip stick and determined that the hyd fluid is full, perhaps I could enlist your help solving another problem. I'll create another post to discuss my next issue.

Off topic question of interest regarding South Wales, I assume South Wales is your home. My great grandfather, David Jones is from Leanshyod, Derbyshire, North Wales. My great grandmother, Mary Ann Wyatt is from Geomarganshire, Mountain Ash, South Wales.

Thanks, again for your help. DD

I think you mean Denbighshire. Derbyshire is in England. The other word you are after, the county containing Mountain Ash is Glamorganshire.
Sorry to be pedantic but I am half Welsh!

Roy,

Thanks for your input. It appears I couldn't read my grandmother's hand and appreciate your help. There is reference to another place, I assume, close to Mountain Ash, Penrheivceiber (?). Thanks for the insight, now I have a better understanding of myself - I have Welsh in my veins. Have a quality day. DD

Hi,
Lean...is a new one on me but I expect you are right Roy. Mountain Ash is about 35 miles from me.
Seems that the Welsh went to a lot of places doing 'missionary work'!!!!!

David,

Interesting to learn you're close to Mountain Ash. It appears I can't read my grandmother's hand. Not sure of the spelling (Le or Ll)anshyod, does not ring any bells? Sometime ago I had the pleasure of meeting a Brit on "missionary work". We had a nice visit and shared family history. When the gentleman learned I am Scotch, Scotch/Irish, and Welsh, he said to me in his best Brit, "My what a bloody mix you are."

Perhaps you'll be able to point me in the right direction solving my next issue on the MF 175. After it warms to operating temps it is unable to lift any attachments. Thanks for your help and look forward to your reply. DD

That tractor should have a dip stick in the round cover by your right heel as you sit on the tractor.

Bob,

Finally found it. My dad used to say to me, "If it were a snake it would have bit you." This is a great resource. There have been others equally helpful. Now that we've found the dip stick and determined that the hyd fluid is full, perhaps I could enlist your help solving another problem. I'll create another post to discuss my next issue. My sincere thanks for your help. DD

Bob NY,
Greetings. Thanks for the tip. However, could not find round cover or dip stick. Am new to the forum and may not have correctly uploaded two pics, titled: right side, left side. The right side has, what I think is, a differential brake and response adjustment lever. The left side has the pto lever. Just above the clutch pedal is a plug in the side of the case. I think it may be used to check hyd fluid level in a way similar to that of a rear differential. Have ordered manual, thought I'd give the forum a try while awaiting delivery. Appreciate your help and look forward to your reply. Thanks.
