Yes, the dipstick to the left of the shifter is for checking hydraulic oil. If the tractor is cold, go by the mark nearest the bottom of the dipstick; if the tractor has been running and is still warm, go by the upper mark on the dipstick. I just had to add some hydraulic oil to my D-17 Series III today. Total capacity is just under 10 gallons; mine was about 2.5 gallons low. It wouldn"t lift the front loader more than 6-8 feet. Works fine now.

I second the manual purchase. Also, google rules of punctuation, makes things ever so clear, and less confusing.

The hydraulic dip stick is on the right side of tractor between engine and transmission under fuel tank. I think you check with lift rams collapsed.

You need to buy the operator manual for your tractor. It is the basic manual for any tractor owner. It details all of the features, and how they work. It details all of the fluid requirements, places to check, capacities, etc. You mention power booster....I think you are referring to "Traction Booster". No, that has nothing to do with your issue, but the op manual will explain what TB is for and how to use it.

Today's Featured Article - Grain Threshing in the Early 40's - by Jerry D. Coleman. How many of you can sit there and say that you have plowed with a mule? Well I would say not many, but maybe a few. This story is about the day my Grandfather Brown (true name) decided along with my parents to purchase a new Ford tractor. It wasn't really new except to us. The year was about 1967 and my father found a good used Ford 601 tractor to use on the farm instead of "Bob", our old mule. Now my grandfather had had this mule since the mid 40's and he was getting some age on him. S ... [Read Article]
