It's a real pain in the neck to get to. Go on the driver side and up under the engine it will be towards the front. It is a pain to change the oil because the oil runs out down along the front axle and makes a real mess.

husky, on a side note, i was thinking of putting a bucket on mine too, how well did the tube frame hold up for you? and how big of a pump did you have to put on?

Mine is on a 1556, same chassis as your H14. It does very well. I would recommend trying to find a Johnson 10 model. That is the smaller one with the 32" bucket, 300lb lift capacity. It is the perfect size for these tractors. I can send you pics if you need any at some point.

I'll look it up I think it is in the bolens tube frame manual. I did several of mine but forgot what the setting is.

Cold settings, .005 intake and .010 for the exaust.
