Robert, 

:welcome: to GTTalk

 

It would be a big help if we knew model number of your tractor and maybe a few pics. 

 

Good luck in the repair.

robert, Welcome to the forum. I'm not up on JD hydors but the model of your tractor will help the experts around here.

well, i found the drain plug on bottom of unit,uses recessed allen screw,was covered with grime,luckily i have a forklift .i just raised up to view,cant find fill plug for rear end,but since its 90 degrees vertical i can just add some 90 and plug,that leaves  bleeding unit so i will check back later on that procedure,

   Welcome, Robert, nice to have another J.D. man around. Take care working under the forklift, crazy things can happen when you least expect them. I will admit it's nice to be able to stand up while getting a look at things though.

Welcome to GTTalk Robert. You,ve done the right thing. Water in your transmission is not good!
