||I'm a tractor novice and have a 1957 MF-65 multipower gas engine (continental). I drained the rear end hydraulic fluid and am trying to fill it with new fluid, but what I thought was the fill port seems really small to pour the approximately 4 or 5 gallons of fluid into it. What I think is the fill port is right beneath the seat on the left side (as you're sitting in the seat). Any comments on this? Is this it, or am I missing something? Why did they make it so small if this is it?
||Jim the MF65 has a common reservoir for the Transmission, Hydraulics and Differential. All three are filled at the big plug just to the left of the main transmission shift lever. They all three check with the dipstick in the access plate on the right side of the rear center housing. They hold 8 gallons of oil when completely drained. To get all of the oil out you have to pull both drain plugs. I was a Massey Ferguson mechanic for 27 years if I can be of further help E-mail me at email@example.com.
