How do you change hydrostatic fluid in 1556 fluid? How much fluid does the system hold? Bought this tractor new in 1973.

Welcome to GTT
Here's a link to the Tube frame service manual.
I dont think we have the owners manual scanned in for your Bolens but I have one for the H14 handy which will tell you what you need to know about the transmission.

Has the oil ever been changed in the transmission? 41 years is a long time to have that fluid in there.......
There are 2 separate sections for fluid. The gears themselves are lubed with Gear oil and they hydrostatic package has a reservoir tank under the fender.
