Hydraulic oil level?

The hydraulic oil level on my 1958 D-17 is overfull. Will this hurt anything or should I drain it and refill to correct level? What happened is I hooked up a hydraulic grain wagon to the outlet to see if I could raise the wagon up. However the cylinder on the wagon will more then drain the hydraulic oil in the tractor. To raise the wagon to full hieght I needed to add more hydraulic oil to the tractor. Then when I let the wagon back down the oil flowed out of the dipstick hole. I drained about 1/2 gallon out of it after the wagon was down. But it is still high on the oil gauge.
So should I drain and refill to correct level or leave it alone?

Rather than drain and refill, if you have a hand suction pump (similar to grease gun, but pull rod and hose), I think the hose would fit down the filler tube and you could just suction out a couple of pumps full.

I would drain it down. It may not hurt anything to be, say, a quart overfull (have had that happen on our D15 with a post driver numerous times), but much more than that and you may have vents covered with oil or rotating parts in oil that should be simply lubricated. I'd drain it just to be on the safe side.
