    Default Help!! how to fill the rear end???

    Hello
    I have owned sears tractors since the 70's...

    I now own 2... My older tractor I went to pull her out of the shed and she no want to shift... at the end of last year I seem to remember it shifting a bit hard, I thought it might be related to colder weather...
    so I have looked for a filler and found nothing....

    I do still have my first and 2nd tractor and I think my 2nd tractor is the same rearend...

    There should be 2 plugs, one about half way up and one on the top. Clean it off real good and take a look. You can always post a pic.

    Is it 917? not 179 for the first three. If so, there is no fill plug on your trans. Those units are loaded with bentonite grease. The shifter fork could be binding or the shift keys sticking.
