The manuals tell quarts. 5 stick in my head, but not sure. These trannies are so much easier to fill on their side, but if the tranny isn't out, you have a long, slow fill ahead of you.
Take tire off, be safe. I bent a piece of copper tubing that I could fish thru the elbow and into the tranny so the air bubbles don't get me and then I use a squeeze bottle of 80/90 on the end of the tubing.
The oil fill for the trannies is the single worst designed piece on these tractors... But it's worth it. Go slow & you will get it.

I also recommend, if you buy quart bottles, putting on stove in some water and heat up the oil, thins it out and make sit much easier.
Took me 45 mins in Dec to fill my 16/6 a couple years ago with tires on using a 90* fitting on filler.
The easy way on my ST16 .....

MH81, you said 5 quarts right? Somehow that seems like a lot looking at the size of the tranny.

Let me see if I can find it.

Now, that's not the same GT I have is it? That looks to be the older model.

Looks like the same wording.
Finally found the one for the GT16

You have a Murray built machine there. I'm assuming the instructions posted above are for Roper built equipment. That should be a 2300 or 2348 Peerless trans in the Murray. I have the oil info somewhere, when I find it I will post it.
EDIT. If that is a 2300 series Peerless it calls for 64 ounces [2 quarts] of 80w90 oil as per the Peerless manual downloadable here.
