Regent Hydro Oil Capacity

Recommended Posts

What gives? I drained the hydrostatic transmission oil on my 2000 Regent as shown in the user's manual. Since there are two separate drain plugs for the casing, I used 2 separate 1 quart containers to catch the oil. Both containers were filled to the top. I then replaced the plugs and attempted to put in 2 quarts of oil through the filler plug under the battery (as shown in the manual) Once I got 1 quart in, it was full. I thought it may have an air lock so I rocked it a little - nothing happened. I then replaced the plug and drove it around a little bit, removed the plug and checked the level -still full. I am stumped by something that is probably so obvious but I can't figure it out. HELP!!! Warren

I don't know anything about Regents but suspect there is a second fill plug in a separate reservoir/gear case. In any event do not drive/use the tractor until the second quart of fluid has been added. You could damage internal parts running it with insufficient oil in it. Does Owner's Manual give you any instructions on refilling the transmission? Someone else should be able to help you with the problem. My thoughts,

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        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
