Cadets leak where the main pump is mounted on front of the trans. There is a cork (I think) round gasket there, and can leak after long use. Have to release 4 long bolts to pull it back enough for gasket. Have to be careful when positioning and tightening again. Might want to also look at those rubber engine cradle mounts. Many times they are weak or broken out and driveline is not lined up as well, and the engine shakes or vibrates thru chassis when metals are hitting hard at those points.

Jus saying that I have heard stories about how Cubs are finicky and don't like off brand oils. Just did a he filter and tranny fluid in my 1650 and buckled down for the Cub oil as much as I hated paying that much for it. My 2¢ worth.

What I put in mine. Looked at TSC website and they didn't list it. May have to check with your local store. Got mine from local Cub dealer. Right next to TSC in town and alot of the time is cheaper.

Nope.  Go to a CaseIH dealer and ask for Hy-Tran Ultraction.  Can sometimes find it at independent Cub Cadet dealers to.  Thats the lateset version of what was in it from new.  Hy Tran is formulated to absorb 1% of its volume in water, it has properties as an o ring swelling agent to keep them tight, it's anti foaming and it will rid itself of air as well.  It is a much better fluid than what TSC or anyone else for that matter has as a "Universal" fluid.

some better parts stores (forget  about Advance and Useless Zone) have, or can get, the exact stuff if you "gotta have" exact OEM.

Same stuff packaged for MTD and sold with a Cub Cadet sticker instead of an IH one.  I am so used to just buying the 5 gallon jugs of it since I use it in several different things including my big farm tractors.

Sounds like some good advice, and all fairly easy to do. So now it's my turn to poop on your parade. Check the ISO mounts if you haven't already as well as the rag joint. Cause "if" the mounts are bad, which most times they are, so is the rag joint from the engine hopping around...

But who knows, yyou may be the lucky one...

Remember when you change the filter to get a hydraulic filter, not an oil filter. Not getting into the HyTran debate. I use only HYTran, always have and always will.

I use CarQuest filters, 85410 or

NAPA FIL1410

Northland is one of the best oils around, bar none.  A ton of farmers around here buy it in bulk containers of 250 gallons each, one of transmission fluid and one of engine oil (diesel) and use it in everything they own, all equipment brands, colors, and configurations.  None of those "Name Brand" oils are made by that brand anyway,  they contract with the big boys to buy their products with their fancy label on it and then charge you for the label.  There are only about 5 or 6 oil producing companies to start with, if that many.  Buy enough and they will put YOUR name on a bunch of quart jugs.
