The things you can do when you don't have hydraulics. That's a fantastic idea and one that I never thought of as long as I have owned these tractors. That frees you up to put a tool box where the battery should be.

When checking the transmission lube if you have big fingers like I do --use an allen wrench insert the short end pointed down in the hole--kinda works like a dip stick .

I don't worry about tractor tires cracking remember they only have 10 to 12 PSI and the tractor speed is less than 9 mph the tires will last for years,

Thank you for all the advice. I wanted to update my progress. I purchased a new air filter wit pre cleaner, spark plug, marvel mystery oil. I also replaced a wire under the hood that had been melted possibly by exhaust. When I turned the key it started immediately. Wow. What a big difference from before. I have a couple of headlights to change now.
Any suggestions as to where you find those locally, tractor supply, walmart, etc?
What does the spark plug tell you about how the engine is running?

Headlights at NAPA or most any auto parts store.
