Check our Manuals Section. Take plenty of pics as you go, they help when reassembling. Good Luck, Rick

64 ounces is 2 quarts.  That might be a bit much for a small transmission. 

 

Anything lighter than 80w90 in a Peerless transaxle will cause leaks, but so will anything heavier...  :rolling: 80w90 is the weight I use.

That sounds a lot easier than refiling transaxle on a sears ss16. Manual recommends 5 liters of sae 30 and you have to drizzle it in the fitting or it burps back. What a PIA,,took 1 1/2 just to refill transaxle,,,it really needs vent or maybe i missed it..

 Well today I finally got after that trans oil change on the ole 7.....really wasn't bad at all took about a half hour to get two pints in it but it def needed it the old stuff I took out was black as coal and pretty slimy and while at it worked on the brake on her got that fixed so little progress is better than no progress for sure :rolling:

It uses 80-90

 

drain using the bottom plug...

 

Fill with the top plug on the side in where the clutch is... Fill until it comes out the hole and your good to go..
