I posted a couple of weeks about this on my 7016H... There was a few people pushing for the Simplicity filter others... and the fluid for the 7016H they said to use Type "F" or Dextron/Mercron...

After reading in another posting :[url]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=17031[/url] recently about the NEw PH16's with the black grip on them being different than the earlier ph16, I am going to switch to a NAPA filter as suggested in that post. After thinking back on it my hydros have all been a bit sluggish since they came out with these black grip PH16's.

I stopped using Frame filters several years ago. I bought a 94 Dodge Dakota new. About 500 miles after the first oil change the filter worked loose, pumped oil every where. Took it off and found the gasket blown loose after it had came loose. Put the gasket back in right, added oil and got home. Figured I didn't get it tight enough the first time. Next day put a new filter on and made sure I got it tight. Didn't last 1000 miles and came loose. This time a couple of miles from nearest store. Have used different brands since and never had a problem. Dave

have had real good luck on using napa filter #1307 on my pow'r max. been using type FA transmission fluid, even went so far as to drill and tap rear of tranny case for a pipe plug. makes changing trans fluid a whole lot simpler and more likely to get done every year.:D Buster

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
