Hi everyone,
I have a question. I checked the fluid in my 1070 the other day for the Transmission Final Drive? I think that is how it was identified in my owners manual. Anyway, it is the little dipstick up by the 3rd link by the 3 point arm. There wasn't any fluid on the dipstick. I don't know how low it is. What do all of you recommend for fluid to be used in there? Getting ready to put the snowblower on the ol' girl for the winter. Thank you everyone. Enjoy your day.

My 1170 has those sight gages. Not one of Case's better ideas. In order to not guess whether the gages are completely full or completely empty, I resort to using a terrace in my back yard.

First, I determine to keep my cool--very important. LOL Second, I drive the tractor which creates a little foam on top of the oil, Third, I crawl under and look thru all three of my tri-focals at the gages on level ground and guess-- empty or full. If I guess both are empty, I park the tractor on the terrace leaning to the left which increases the oil level on the left side. If they still look the same, lean the tractor to the right and crawl under again.

Usually parking at a couple of different angles leaning to the left and leaning to the right, I can cause a foam level to appear in the gage. Success!!!!!!!!

At age 40, crawling under the steps was not so hard. At age 73, I have added a lower step and now the old body and feeble mind really complains about checking those gages. But hey look on the bright side. Eventually, if my grandkids come to visit me in the nursing home, I can tell them about sight gages in the good old days. LOL

Did I mention I love my 1170. Maybe the county will allow me and the 1170 to be buried together on the back forty--me looking up at the sight gages.

Kurt, as a new owner sometimes it is difficult to determine if those sight glasses are full or empty if they are cloudy. As mentioned earlier you can remove and clean them, now me I always end up breaking the darn things. They are glass so don't use a pliers to remove them, maybe someone has a good removal method, heck I have broken new ones installing them. Your not the first guy to fill the trans using cap as a dipstick either, just drain some out and your good to go. Good luck , Rod.

Kurt here are some shots of the sight guages on my 1070, also if you chose Hy-Tran oil and that is not what is in it now you need to do a complete change-over of oil and filters, I highly recomend using Case filters as well and be sure to not loose the relief valves in the top of the fitlters and that you install the correct element in each canister as they are different micro filters cnt

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I am curious too. I think glass... One in my 970 has been broken at some point, and a 1/2" pipe plug screwed into its place. The 6 other ones around here are so cloudy that they are hard to see oil though.

Anyone had luck taking them out and cleaning them?

Obviously that draft will increase if the implement runs deeper than eight inches, and decrease if it runs shallower. Why not use that draft fact to control the depth of work automatically? The draft forces are ... [Read Article]
