My 1650a has become rather sluggish going uphill and slow to catch up after going down hill. Im going to give the cooling fins a cood cleaning and check on the cooling fan, but I think it might be time for a fluid change as I have never performed one since owning it. What fluid do I use in the transaxle? What's everyone using in their Kohlers?

I'm not that familiar with the linkage in those tractors but have you checked out and lubed the linkage. There is sometimes a damper in there that slows down the response to the pedal input. If that's leaking or broken it will cause some funny things to happen to the way the hydro responds.

Did some checking on the filter requirements for the Eaton and it requires 10 micro and 4.5 gpm minimum flow.
The wix 51702 of Fleetgard HF 6446 will meet that spec.
