2 weeks ago I posted that I have found a faster and easier way to fill the hydro on a Sundstrand  Hydro.

 

This may work for others but for those of you with a MF 1655 / 1855  here goes.

 

Remove the plastic tunnel cover over the driveshaft

 

Install a new oil filter filled with oil

 

Remove the return line from the spool valve including its elbow fitting

 

Insert funnel 

 

Pour away

Good idea. As long as the fittings will cooperate and loosen without a fight then tighten again without having leaks afterwards.

Hey Petenpole, guess this is a good idea. 

 

I'm new to this site and new to tractors too. Just acquired a 77 Massey 1655 with many hours on it. Not sure what kind of life it's had, but suspect it hasn't been an easy one. I'd like to change the trans oil and filter. The manual I found on-line just says to use M1110 oil.

 

Doubt that I'll be able to find that at the auto parts dealer. Just what do you recommend as a replacement oil for this machine. And, what about the filter type?

 

Many thanks

I am using oil filters from Car Quest and they happen to be WIX filters.

 

As far as Oil there are many opinions in this group and its really a matter of choice. You can look at my diatribe on rebuilding a Sundstrand and it will share with you the oil that I used from NAPA with great results

 

Good luck and ask any other questions you may have

That is a fantastic way of doing things! Beats the heck out of the fill tube and an hours worth of pouring!
