I have a JD 210,  year 1978 with the 10 hp Kohler purchased at estate auction last fall.

 

It had original owners manual which calls for 4 pints (two quarts) of oil.

 

So I put two quarts in and the dipstick shows overfill.  I looked in the manual

 

again and noticed that the previous owner had penciled in the margin, "use  1 and 3/4 quarts".

 

That amount probably would read full on the dipstick.

 

Sooo....should I go by the manual and ignore the overfill on the dipstick? 

 

Or fill to the full mark on the stick (as the previous owner apparently did) ?

Did you happen to check and make sure your manual is for the right year model of 210? Maybe JD had more then one manual for that series.

The german manual is from 1979 (1979: sn95001M-    ), but I don't believe that there are real big differences in fluid capacities

 

Edit: I forgot this list... Attached File  John_Deere_CCE_Fluid_Capacities(2007).pdf   81.64KB   32 downloads

 

Here you'll find differences, as Brian said before.

I bet the 1.75 is right, but also check the link below.

The 200 Series takes 1.5 to 1.75. I would not overfill mine.

I just changed oil in the 314 with the K321 and the Kohler service manual says 2 qts for all K3xx engines and that is what it took.  I just grabbed the 120 service manual and it calls for 1.5 qt in the k301.  Maybe a difference in the oil pan used in different applications?  If you have overfilled that much I would drain some out and check again.

If you over fill and then run it you will have a mess, just go by what dip stick reads.

Dumb question: Is it the correct dipstick for the engine?

it depens on the oil pan

there are two different one it could have

the flat bottom holds more oil

Thanks for all the replies!  From all the answers , and the links , I think I should drain a little out and

go with 1.75 quarts like the original owner did.

 

This is a great site!
