I'm looking at replacing the gear oil in the transmission of my 1254. I've read that I could use a GL-5 spec oil, but I've also read that a GL-5 oil could harm the bronze parts inside and that a GL-1 spec is best. What's the right answer? Does this oil also work in the PTO gearbox of the mower deck that I have?
Also, there is no freewheeling pin on the right axle, as the pictures show. Anyone else come across something like this? There is one picture from the front of the tractor, and one from the rear.
Finally, the left rear wheel is leaking oil, which I'm assuming is just a seal. Does this oil come from the transmission, and is it ok to run it like that for a little while until I can get the parts?
