917 - fluid & manual questions

Recommended Posts

MasterChief
Sure enjoying my Christmas present....my almost new 22 year old (1981 with 100hrs!) 917....but have some questions: #1) How much oil and what type should be in the "middle" gear box, the one with the strange little dipstick? #2) What about the "rear" hydralic/transmission box, how much and what type of fluid? #3) Where can I get manuals for my 917, it's deck and the tiller so I don't have to aske these basic questions. #4) My schedule didn't allow me to attend but, did anyone get to the Wisconsin meeting in Rhinelander last week? Any pictures? Thanks much and regards, Denny

Denny All of the information any one is looking for can be found by doing a search of the Forums. You Can download the manuals from the site posted above. It will require that you put some of your time into it (Looking them up & Downloading) The three fluids you will find in your tractor are. Motor oil. 80-90w Gear Lube. Automatic Transmission Fluid, ATF, Dexron/Mircon. To change the Hydro fluid you will need the manual for the correct procedure. (Or do a search, that has been posted here )

        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
