    Default new holland oil fill location

    Hi folks, New member here. Had to let go my employee that used to handle all the mechanics on the trucks, vehicles and equipment. So here is the dumb question of the day. How in the heck do you fill/add oil to a 555e new holland ford backhoe? can't seem to find a fill cap anywhere. And we own the complete set of manuals and still cannot locate it! My guy was organized enough to have on the shelf all the parts and extras as well. Fluids, all the hoses that seem to break

    Right front of the timing cover for engine oil. Clearly called out in figure 4-9 on page 4-7 of the 555E operator's manual that is in front of me. Publication #86570568. Engine oil, hydraulic oil, brake oil, transmission oil and rear axle oils all described in Section 4. Service index with pages listed for individual service items is on page 4-4.

    What we need is more idiot control.

    Rick, I don't have the service manual, I have the full set 1-9 of new holland manuals. And the complete service parts catalog. Can you send me a pic or two of those pages? burlpainthardware@sbcglobal.net really appreciate it. We just got 6 inches of snow tonight so far and i need to take care of the maintenance on this thing.
    Thanks

    I am referencing the Operator's Manual, not the Service Manual. It can be downloaded immediately in its entirety here:

    Choose Items

    Copy and paste 86570568 into the publication number field and click on 'search' . Have a credit card handy.
