Pete, the hand clutch & hyd.pump are in the same compartment and use 20W or 10W non-foaming oil, depending on outside temperatures. If you want to change the final drive oil, remove the pan from the bottom. {90W gear lube]
Also, the trans.& rear diff. use 90W gear lube.

I think you are mistaken. I think the hand clutch is the same oil as the transmission and rear end. The hydraulic pump draws from it's own sump, it does lube the belt pully though I think. The hydraulic oil is filled and checked with the little dipstick on the left side of the bellhousing casting. The transmission has two filler plugs on the left side.

I looked before I went to Fleet Farm for oil. My perticular tractor appears to get all of it's hydraulic oil from the tank mounted behind the gas tank. I didn't see a "pump" on the tranny but, I have a pump on the front of the engine. I purchased 80W-90 for the tranny and gears, and trans clutch areas. I looked and saw three drain plugs on the bottom as well a small plug on the PTO and the Draft adjust(?). I believe I know where to fill but how do you check the level to be correct. I bought 6 gallons of oil.

Sounds like your WD45 has an external hydraulic pump on the front of the engine to give it "live" hydraulics with a reservoir behind the gas tank. The WD45 still has an internal hydraulic pump to operate the 3 point hitch arms and remote cylinder coupling - it's checked by the dipstick noted and takes the 20w hydraulic fluid mentioned. Then you have the transmission which is filled through the plugs .... simple enough?? ;-)

I have a few images of fill locations for the WD45 on my website under "oil capacities and oil type recommendations" - but none of them will show your external pump or reservior.
