That is how mine looks also. I am not sure yet about where on the end of the tube is considered full. I would think that as long as the fluid is on any part of the tube, that it would be ok? Maybe one of the other MF 12H owners could tell us for sure.

 

Mine is apart waiting for the restore to start, so I haven't checked into this part of it yet.

I'd say, fill it to the top.

As far as I know, that's the same hydro as the MF12s, with the tank

under the seat. So, make sure it's full, and if you want to, find a

tank to put under the seat, and fill it even more.

That's what I did on mine 3 years ago.

I'll have to look into that thanks Will! I would guess that you would just eliminate the vent tube and use this location to tie in the new holding tank?

Yes, that's what I did. I'm looking to see if I have any pics.

If I recall, it's a pipe thread, where the vent tube screws into.

I did have to torch away a bit of the frame, to make room for the hose, but not enough to

make a structural difference.

I can see there being a tank under the seat at one time, the "cap" or what is under the seat for the hydro, looks like a small hose would push right on.

Nope, only pics I've got, don't show much detail.

 

Before.

After. You can just see where I ran the hose.

As long as fluid is below the slit, air can still move in and out of the transmission when it heats up in use.  I've filled mine way up before, then when I ran the trans for an extended period, the excess fluid ran out of the tube and left a trail behind me.  I'm going to try and find a small tank to use as an overflow tank myself one day.

That "cap" you see under the seat is the vent for the Peerless trans axle. The Hydro and the Trans axle are 2 separate units. Hydro takes transmission fluid, and the trans axle takes gear oil. I just figured I would mention this as I have seen people make the mistake of adding the wrong fluid to either unit.
