    Default john deere 1050 1985 model

    I want to change the hydralic fluid. Never done this before. I have new fluid and new filter.
    Is this done same as with oil change, just drain fluid and change fiter?
    Any other steps?
    (No loader on tractor, just three point hitch)

    That's pretty much it but there may be more than one drain plug for the transmission and rear end. Have a large enough container it holds about 6 gallons of oil.

    The other step you want to do is to clean the suction screen. It runs cross wise across the tranny on the bottom. It is a triangle shaped cover on the left side just in front of rear wheels. Take cover and pull out the fine mesh screen in there. Clean it with some brakeclean or equiv., dry off and reinstall then good to go. The suction screen prevents any metal or large debris from going into the pump.
