I got this Bolens GT off of my brother and know nothing about it. I need to know what type of fluid it uses in the hydro tranny and what year this is but have had no luck with the manuals I have looked at so far. Any help would be much appreciated. It is a H16XL, Model # is 1658, Serial # is 0201012.

It would be a 79 or 80 ,Seems this was the only years they were made.I may/could be wrong.
I have the G14xl which is the gear drive and smaller horse.
Sorry can't help with the hydro fluid.
Someone with more knowledge will be along

I would say 1979-1980
Was always told to use Type "F" but I would wait till a few of the guys who regularly use these hydrostatic Bolens to weigh in with their opinions.
