7016H hydro-static transmission oil

Recommended Posts

Hi

I'm sure that this subject has been brought up before. I have what I believe to be a Sundstrand Series 15 U Pump on my Simplicity 7016H. Depending on where I read up on this, it seems that I can use one of many different oils. Anti-wear hydraulic oil, Type "F" transmission fluid, Dex-tron II fluid, or hydraulic / transmission fluid. I would like to find out what people here are using. When I drained the system out yesterday the oil was red. So it was ether Type "F" or Dex-tron. I have hydraulic / transmission fluid on hand. If anyone can give me a clear answer on which way to go I will be able to proceed with confidence.

If it's red, I use Dex-tron, If it's not, I use Simplicity hydrostatic oil or New Holland Ambra Multi-G 134. I also know people that use Mobil 1 10W-30.

I am using Amsoil Synthetic Tractor Hydraulic/Transmission Oil SAE 5W-30 in my Sovereign only because during the winter, in the cold, my pump would initially cavitate and would creep forward due to the OEM oil viscosity. The only thing I have seen using ATF is, when I tore apart a transaxle to replace an axle tube, there was a red thick coagulation that separated from the fluid. I do not think this was harmful but I was concerned with this forming in the hydraulic lift cylinder.

I wasn't sure what to do. this is a duplicate post. I meant to post this question here. I really appreciate all of your help with this. Now my next question is where do I pour the fluid in? I have searched just about every place on the internet and have come up without an answer. I have been working on my Simplicity tractors for a while now. I have never worked on a Hydro-Static transmission before. I don't want make any mistakes. Thanks in advance. Is there any way to get a complete copy of the 7016H manual that PhanDad provided the page from.

Thanks again

Steve

Steve,The manual shown in the other post is for an Allis 716H and I don't know of an electronic copy of the manual. Maybe I'll make one some day. But since you have a 7016H, you can get free electronic manuals (operator, parts, and service) for many Simplicity tractors.The 4th post from the top of the posts in this forum (a "sticky" titled "Simplicity Product Support & Manuals Link") provides a link where you put the mfg# of your tractor or attachment and a search will provide a list of available manuals. I also have a 7016H, it has mfg#1690342; yours could be the same or different. The hydro fill is circled in red in this pic:

The vent is also circled in red in this pic:

The pics are of a 7100 series tractor with the side hydro filter; your 7016H filter should be remote, between the side plates under the BGB. You lift the pin in the vent valve when filling. This post also discusses filling the hydro:http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=168528

Thanks for the response. It seams that my filler tube has been broken off. I have read that this is common. I tried to remove the broken piece of pipe that was left in the housing with an E_Z out. It wouldn't come out. I tapped it out and installed a 1/8 pipe plug. Now it's clear how that was originally. I can make it up using 1/8 pipe. I am now wondering how long that piece of 1/4 pipe is, so I can make sure that I have the proper length and oil level. It looks as if it's probably a 3 inch piece of pipe.

Very Grateful

Steve

I just downloaded the manuals for my 7016H. Thank you. I was able to find the length on that piece of pipe. It is 3 inches long. It looks like I'm off to the races. So to speak. So long for now.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
