I have a wd that needs all of the fluids changed. Would it hurt after i drain it all out to put something in and drive a short distance to flush out. Then drain real good and refill. Thank you. Archie

While this sounds like a good idea, I don't do it for the reason that there are places in the transmission and engine where oil is trapped and will not drain out. If you put fuel oil or kerosene or something like that in there what doesn't drain out will contaminate and thin out your new oil. There is a lot of oil in a WD transmission, just change it, what is left in there won't hurt, and it won't thin your new oil. If you want in a few months or a year change it again. Don't forget the final drives, a lot of people do. And there are 3 drain plugs for the transmission and one for the hydraulic system.

Don't forget the drain on the bottom of the hydraulic pump. Also, have a screw driver or stick handy to poke through the decades of mud that have settled in the belly of these beasts. (You'll know to use it if you hear the clunk of the drain plug hitting the bottom of the bucket followed by total silence.)

Like Tom says- just do a normal drain and refill. That is all that is necessary. Just use the right oils for refill, according to the specs in the OPERATOR manual. If those specs were fine for the full-time farmer who used it every day for several decades, it should do well for those who maintain it for the next generation.
