    Default Oil Drain 3840

    I hate to be dyslexic. None of the manuals seem to accurately picture where the oil pan drain is. Rather safe than sorry. Thought I'd verify/question here.

    The oil pan seems to be a "U" shaped design that straddles the the front axle drive shaft? One drain plug on either side of the "U"?

    Tractor has Montana loader if that makes any difference at all.

    Thanks in advance.

    Because of the front drive the oil pan forms that U. Open both drain plugs to drain all of your oil. Leaving one in will not drain the oil from that side of the Pan.

    Ahhh...So I surmised. Just wanted to verify because neither the Koreanglish owners manual not the better shop manual noted this configuration.

    Also, I noticed a small engine oil filler port on the engine right side, in addition to the anticipated topside filler. Anything I should be aware of?

    Many thanks,

    Let it out, let all out. Then put BOTH plugs back in a fill it back up.

    Their is a bronze washer on both plugs. They can be lost in the oil very easily. Make sure their on the plug when ready ti reinstall. They will seep oil if not on.
