I was contacted by a fellow looking for the type of fluid to use in this Sears tractor. He claims the hydro is a Sundstrand number 90-2054. It is a 14 HP. He'd also like to know if there is any kind of a screen to clean when changing fluid. His complaint is slipping on a hill. He claims to have covered most of the generic stuff I suggested like the foot pedal not returning, fluid level, ect. He says his neighbor tried to research online and claims it was only built one year (1971) and they haven't been able to find any info on it. Can anyone help? Anybody have a manual for the tractor or hydro?

Hi DougT, those era the tractors were call Hydro Trac's by Sears / Roper here's a manual that is close but I'm sure the hydro and transaxle is the same, per the manual hydro is serviced with hydraulic fluid type A

Thanks, GB. I had looked at that manual in the manual section but it was dated 68. With this tractor only being built in 71 I didn't know if they would be the same or not.

Hi Doug I maybe wrong but I think all the hydro Tracs had the same hydro & final drive, from my searches they were built from 1968 thur 1971 after that the system was referred to as just a hydro.

Yes true, all had the same drive.

If it is a 14HP and a hydro, that is a pretty rare tractor, not many made and Sears only made the 14 HP Briggs in 71

You may want to check the filter out or see what is left of it when you pull the pan.
