I jumped ship and made a video while I did the 1st oil change on my T474 this weekend. This engine is pretty much a straight shot and easy to service. Filter I used was aftermarket NAPA FIL1626 and Rotella T6 5w40 for winter use in Montana. Anyway, take it for what's worth. I've run into so many nay-sayers of using non stock filter (Not easy for some of us to get, as local dealers never stock consumables.)

Thanks for posting the video. I have a T574 that has the same engine but with turbocharger. I still have under 50 hours so have not done the 50 hour service yet. There is a good chance that I might have missed the second oil drain plug without your video. The owners manual makes no mention of two drain plugs. Another thing not in the manual is that when you change the front axle fluid (part of 50 hour service) you should remove the vent plugs at the top of both wheel gear housings. Not doing this may result in low dip stick readings after driving for a while. Maybe your front wheel housing is different from mine but take a look for the vents.

Thanks for the tip nepa. When my 50 hour service and the rest of the fluids come due I will have to keep the front axel air vents in mind.

By the way, do you happen to know the Wix number, or any other brand, for the hydraulic filter for your 474 or my 574? Thanks.

I don't have the long HST filter on my 474 like your 574 has, I believe mine has the short suction filter only. And that has not been confirmed yet if it will fit as I'm waiting on 50hours. Only at 25h now.
