It has happened that when you remove the drain plug for the hydraulic sump nothing comes out. The problem is that the drain hole is sealed over by caked sludge. Use a wire or something and open it up. You should try to use a bent wire and scrape as much sludge from the sump as you can. Also clean the drain plugs real good. The hydraulic ones have a magnet in them and the others could have had magnetic plugs installed. I use FS brand Power Fluid in my hydraulic system and 85w140 gear oil in the transmission, rear end and final drives. By the way the final drives have no drain plugs, you either use a suction gun to remove the old lube or just top off the drives.

There are 3 drain pulgs for the transmission and clutch. Under the rear end. Under the transmission in the sheetmetal plate bolted on there. The bottom of the PTO or the plate that covers the PTO opening if you don't have a PTO. There are two fills on the left side of the tractor too. Use all drains and fills. They are interconnected but to drain it all and fill evenly, not having to wait for the oil to flow through a bearing etc, use them all. The hydraulic is the other plug, the one you mention, and the fill is the twist cap the little dipstick. Don't forget to do the final drives. You have to take the pans off and clean them. You can then fill them through the fill/level plug. Or you can nearly fill them and put them on and bolt them up. They take 90 weight gear oil.

When draining the hydraulic system, it's a good idea to drain the pump control as well. There is a small plug on the bottom of the pump control.
