The rear axle center housing is also the sump for the 3 point hydraulics on that tractor, that is if it has a 3 point lift. The transmission is a separate sump. There should be a square headed pipe plug near your right heel when you're sitting on the tractor. The hole that plug is in is the level check hole for the rear axle/hydraulics. The fill hole is on the top of the differential hosing and has a large hex head plug in it and is located under your right butt cheek when you're sitting on the tractor. Fill it through the fill hole until fluid just begins to drip out of the level check hole.

The transmission level check hole is also on the right side, up by the brake pedals, just forward of the seam between the transmission and the rear axle center housing, and it also has a square head pipe plug. The fill plug is up by the shifter, also with a large hex head plug. Filling procedure is the same as the rear axle.

They use the same type of oil but do not share a common sump. 3 cylinder Fords all have separate reservoirs for transmission and rear axle.

Today's Featured Article - Restoration Story: 1964 JD 2010 Dsl - Part 2 - by Jim Nielsen. Despite having to disassemble the majority of my John Deere 2010's diesel engine, I was still hopeful I could leave the engine-complete with crankshaft and camshaft-in the tractor. This would make the whole engine rebuild job much easier-and much less expensive! I soon found however, that the #4 conrod bearing had disintegrated, taking with it chunks of the crankshaft journal. As a resul ... [Read Article]
