This is my first post to the forum. I have searched for alot of info here that has helped TREMENDOUSLY!
I recently picked up a 1650 with cab and snowblower for next to nothing (under $200). After rebuilding the carb and freeing up the blasted brake pedal, its running great! However, I am trying to figure out the proper method for checking the trans oil level. There is a slight leak (1 drop every couple of hours) at the mid hyd. Piston, which I will address soon. Should the fluid level (dipstick under seat) be checked with the engine running in neutral, or with the engine off?

Thank-you in advance,
Nick

Engine off is best, but likely be ok with it running as well.  Don't think enough circulation at idle in neutral to stir the level much if at all.
