Just got a Wheel Horse 417-A couple of days ago. Got a good deal I feel. Spend $150 on the GT. It needs some lovin' but I'm up to working on and trying anything. Guess my question is now what oil do I need to use in the hydro and rear, it does the a hydro filter too. I know you Wheel Horse guys now all this but just thought I'd just throw that in there too.:-) I'm a Cub guy so I use Hy-Tran in those hydro's and just don't want to screw up this hydro with the wrong oil. Thanks for all your help guys. Have a great and blessed Easter too.

Not sure which oil, so bumping the thread for a real Wheel Horse guy to answer.  I owned 3 WH hydro models years ago, and I ran Dexron ATF in them.

I've also used 15w40 in MANY different makes of hydro's also.  In worn units, the thicker viscosity improves performance & longevity as it doesn't bypass the worn parts as bad.

It takes 4-5 quarts of motor oil. 10-30 is the recommended viscosity. You must use a hydraulic oil filter. Fram PH2844 is acceptable, as is a Baldwin B2H.

Thanks for all your info. you have given me. I have done some internet crawlin' and 10W30 was also what I found, but I also like to see what others are use too. I also glad to find out what filter to use as I am going to change that too. As I said before I'm a Cub man so I have another question. What does the ram end of the hyd. cyl. hook to? There is no pin in the end and I can't find the place it hooks to. I feel I'm just over looking something, but guess I just need to be pointed in the right direction.LOL. I couldn't seem to find anything about the mounting of the deck on the old interweb. Thanks again for all the help.:-)

The 417-A was also sold in 1985 with model number 31-17KE01.

Thanks for the help and pointers. Found what I was missing as soon as I got the deck off this morning. The lift arm this a shaft with an ear that goes into the lift cyl. It was something I was over looking and it was easy to fix as soon as I can got a picker pin. Thanks again for all the help.:-)
