Mike........there should be 2-cotterkeyed holes in yer tranny housing. The cotterkeys jingle-jangle to keep the dust from sealing the drain holes. What it means, DON'T OVERFILL yer 5-gals of hydro-tranny oil ...or... the front tranny seal will LEAK.
We recommend pulling the 6-o'clock bolt from yer 6"-roundy dipstick plate behind yer right heel and letter dribble down the side of the tranny. That sets the level atta'bout 4-1/2 gals (which is plenty) and stops the front tranny seal from leaking (which can eventually oil yer clutch plate) ...and... more IMPORTANTLY, stops the rear axle seals from leaking on yer brake shoes. .......oily Dell

OK, I just looked at the exploded views and no mine does not have a cotter pin in it.
I did fill the housing with 5 gals. The bolt suggestion is great . Thanks.
By the way, any trick to getting the rear tire off? I have the 6 bolt rim. Just got a nasty flat today by way of fencing wire through the side wall. But I'll be dipped if I can get that rim busted off.

Mike........eazyway to bust yer reartire off, is to remove ALL the 8-axle nuts and then LOOSELY re-nut 2-nuts and then drive in figger-8's. Roundy-round. This will bust yer 8-studs loose. CAUTION: those rear ag-bar tires can weigh up-to 300#. So iff'n it starts to tip-over; guess what??? Gitt outta the way!!! Many ar-bar tires are filled with CaCl (calcium chloride) salt water for added traction weight. .......Dell
