1974 WheelHorse hydrostatic transmission

John I have a 1974, 16 horse automatic hydraulic lift Wheelhorse Tractor. The hydraulic lift fluid is low and I need to know what kind of fluid I should be using to fill/change it? Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
John


george Oil Therecommendedtransmissionoilis SAE 1 OW-30 or SAE 1OW40
engine oil. IMPORTANT: All 1972 and prior, and some 1973 models
use automatic transmission fluid (Dexron 11). Determine type of oil in
these units Do Not Mix engine oil and automatic transmission fluid.
Units may have been changed to engine oil ,during prior overhauls. To
convert to engine oil, the entire system transmission, transaxle, hoses,
hydraulic lift valve must be totally cleaned Of transmission fluid.

RB I will check my manual. I have all the originals. They were my father in laws. I have his 1974 C160 Wheelhorse. E-mail me at Preach52@hotmail.com and I will reply to you. Thanks. Please post subject as wheelhorse trans.
RB According to the original 1974 manual on page 14, the transmission takes 10w-30 or 10w-40 premium oil. Capacity is 6 quarts. Drain and refill transmission every year or every 100 hrs. of operation. I can sen you a copy of the manual if you need one.
John Thank you for the information. What would be involved in getting the manual?
Thanks, John
