L - 1500 KUBOTA

hank evans Can anyone fill me in on the correct oil level in the gear box? how many litres? and how can you tell? is there some sort of dip stick? or filler plug?
Vic Byskal Hi Hank, Your L1500 tractor has the following capacities:

Crankcase Oil 3.8 Litres
Cooling System 5.3 Litres
Transmission 2WD 22.0 Litres
Transmission 4WD 24.0 Litres
Front Axle Diff 4WD 1.1 Litres
Steering Gear Box .3 Litres

There should be an obvious nut on the LH side of the transmission body, about 1/2 way up from the foot rest. Loosen it off and if oil is at the correct level, it should just fall out of the hole slowly. Just like checking the rear diff level in yer pick-up!

There is no dipstick. If you're going to change that oil, make sure to pull out the hydraulic screen, located on the LH side of the transmission body and clean or replace it. The hydraulic screen is located lower down then the level indicator plug, further towards the rear of the tractor, and just under where your left heel would be if it were resting on the foot board.

It's pretty much at the lowest point on the side of the transmission body. Once you've dropped the transmission oil, take the cover concealing the screen off, and withdraw the screen. It's a metal mesh. Wash it out with varsol or diesel fuel and re-install. If it's badly rusted and/or has a hole in it, replace it with Kubota Part # 34150-37710.

This procedure, location of hydraulic filter and capacities are identical for Kubota L175, L185, L1801. The location and procedure is same for L2000, capacities are slightly higher on the L2000 tractor and are as follows for L2000 owners:

Crankcase Oil 6.1 Litres
Cooling System 6.6 Litres
Transmission 2WD 24.0 Litres
Transmission 4WD 24.0 Litres
Front Axle Diff Case 4WD 2.3 Litres

Ken Can you tell me if this tractor is a 12 volt postive ground or negative ground.
