    Default john deere 185 hydro rearend fluid change.

    My late 80's jd 185 hydro has been going very slow lately I replced the drive belt as it was slipping and it's no faster.. So now I want to change the fluids in there rear hydrostatic drive. Question is how do I drain the hydro fluid and what fluid do I replace it with? There is a drain for the transmission fluid but nothing for the hydro.

    The axle takes 90W oil and the Hydrostat takes a hydrostatic fluid that you have to get from JD it fixed my Hydro 165 with the same issues
