I recently purchased a closed side LGT 165. It has 50 inch deck. Runs decent but needs some tuning. This is my first hydro, so I have a couple questions. Where does one check and fill the hydro fluid? Second, what type fluid should be used? Third, can I tell the year of this machine by the serial number?
I will be needing to find some parts for it. The brake drum is loose and worn out in the center. The front axle pivot is very worn as are the spindle bushings.
