Is there a drain on the bottom or just the red hose ?

There is a drain plug at the bottom. Then a fill port that Sears added since the frame covers it. Then the vent that the red hose is attached to.

Since the hose hooks on a fitting and curls out of the frame, it allows more fluid in the tranny. The FF you fill till fluid can be seen in the hose.

I cleaned up the brass screen on the vent today, and I got the old tranny fluid drained out.  Picked up some of the paint you mentioned, and I ordered a set  of FF/18 decals.  That hammered silver does match up good.  Thanks Kenny!

I got some of it painted yesterday, rain all day today slowed things down a bit.  I did get the new filter and tranny fluid in it.  cleaning the vent and new fluid and filter seem to speed it up a bit and give it better response.   I put the front end up against a tree in the back yard to see how the rear-end/hydro were going to be....I did not know that this tractor has posi-trac too!  Awesome!

If you had AG's on there, you'd have dug deep holes! That's the limited slip in the Peerless 2500 working.

I got the ag tires on the rims yesterday.  I used some goo gone to remove the sticky stuff left behind by the massey 1855 stickers, and then I sanded everything with water and wet/dry 100 grit paper.  After that  I got the first coat of paint on the hood and fender.  This morning I sanded them out with some 400 grit wet/dry paper, and then applied the 2nd coat of paint.

I'm glad to see it ain't red anymore!

Well, I put the Sears back together today.  It turned out pretty good.  I liked the red paint that was on it when I found it, but it looks better like this I think.   Got all the kids out for a photo shoot this morning while I was at it.

Guess what came in the mail today?  Decals!   I sure wish they had also had the tail light decals and the orange stripe on the hood decals...

That is what I will probably do.  I still have the tail light decals on the  parts tractor, I can use those for a pattern.  I just need to find some red reflective 4 inch wide tape, I guess.....
