/ X300 Transmission oil change #1

I pulled my K46 transmission today, the oil was black but did not smell burnt. I will let it drain for a full day and then put Gastrol 5-50W synthetic back in it. This is the second oil change for this mower. First one was at approx. 300 hours (probably should have done it before then ), now has 519 hours on it. The magnet was not very dirty and had very little trash on it. Will put a drill motor on the splined shaft and turn it some to get the oil level right before installing. I don't like using a drill on that shaft cause I don't want to knarl up the shaft. I might try wrapping the shaft with some tape before chucking a drill motor on it. Any suggestions would be helpful.
