Yes, thats how I do it... fill from top plug on R.side of trans until its up to level of Fill Plug (on R.side about 1/4 way up from bottom)(some have a 45-street ell with a plug) Same w/BGB; fill from "vent plug" on top till its up to level of Fill Plug (on back of BGB 1/4 way up from bottom)

Andy, Are you filling it with SAE 90 as per manufacturers instructions? If so, where did you find straight 90 weight? I went to a few local auto parts store here in southern New Hampshire and no one seems to carry straight 90 weight oil. -Mike

I think your better off using the "multi-viscosity" gear lube like 80w90(I use synthetics)..Its a bit thinner/better in cold weather. For jobs like snowblowing, etc... I've even seen 75w140, but the bigger the visc. swing the more additives needed..... 2cworth

I think I read that the later models took Simplicity Multi fluid. I also believe that is type f or atf. I spoke to the local dealer here and he thought that any good grade of oil would work. I am running sae 30 in two that I just rebuilt and have had no trouble. The late model and early one are the same inside. With that said I am running 75-90 in my 7116 for a couple of years with out trouble also.
