I need to look into that, Brian. There is a tube coming up the back with a cap on it. But the tube looks old and may have a crack in it. You can see part of it in the 8th pic I posted.
I have downloaded the owners manuals we have in for the FF's. Need some time to study them. Wish they were a bit better, kind of hard to read them. I was hoping someone had a good copy we could replace at least one of them with.
This has the Eaton 11/Peerless combination in it. Do any of the JD's have this combo?

What's that rig have for a trans ? It looks like a Peerless/ Eaton unit ? If so its almost the same as the 195. I'm not sure if it has outboard brakes lie the 195 .

Keith, look at my last post. (Eaton11/Peerless)
I just got approved in the Yahoo FF Forum. I am raiding the files. Found a great Owners/Parts manual for the FF20. Plus some other info, like this:

I will get these things uploaded as soon as I can. Manual is already uploaded.

Kenny, I am just now seeing this thread, and all I have to say is that is a great looking beast of a tractor. Great score and I hope you have a lot of fun with it.

On the JD's 300's, which use Sunstrand transmissions, there is a tube that connects from a low point in the transmission and goes through what looks like a fuel filter then back in at the top. The tube also acts as a site glass for checking fluid level. The fuel filter needs to have a small hole (1/16") drilled through the outside casing to vent pressure in the trans. If you order the 10$ JD part it has the hole. The PO replaced the filter with a standard one but didn't know about the vent. An easy fix once I figured out what was going on. I'm not sure how the FF is vented but there needs to be one somewhere to relieve pressure in the trans.

It's supposed to have one back there on that tube. But the tube has a couple holes in it right now, so it's venting. I'll get into that when I change fluid and filter.

I found this pic that shows the same setup I have. So now I am befuddled. Unless there is another vent under there somewhere, I don't see one here. Guess I'll have to look a bit deeper.

Kenny, I think Daniel is familiar with the Eaton hydro and he would know how they are vented.

Kenny, it doesn't seem right that the tubing is exposed unprotected like that. Does the manual have a picture of the rear end showing that. Not familiar with the Eaton hydro but the level of fluid looks very high to me. I haven't looked at the manuals you uploaded.

They are vented at the fill point. No other place in or on the trans axle to vent.

All the pics I can find on the great googly search show the sight tube exposed on the rear. :wtf:

That is not my tractor, but mine is just like it. The manual shows something totally different. I haven't looked real close at the plug to see if it may have a small hole in it. I do plan to change the fluid and filter soon. It has the spin on type filter, but that has a dent in it. I cannot see any fluid in the tube like that pic has. Plus I need a new piece of tubing. I'm not sure when I may get to this, work goes on.

I believe that on the JD 318 there is a small fitting that is actually a vent. I think it uses a similar Peerless 2 speed axle. I'm used to the older Dana /Sunstrand setup in the 314/317 which have the site tube inside the frame.

Thanks, Brian. I just need time to look things over more. Maybe this weekend.
