Hi 

I just picked up a 7016-H. After looking it over it seems that someone in their infinite wisdom mixed oils in the hydro-static transmission. It looks like a mixture of hydraulic and transmission fluid. Whatever it is, the little bit that I have drained into the pan doesn't mix. I have searched the internet for the last three days whit no luck to find out how to flush the whole system out, and use the recommended type "F" transmission fluid. I have what I be leave to be a Sundstrand Series 15 U Pump. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks Everyone

Welcome to GTT. You've come to the right place. Go to our Manuals Section and download the manuals for your tractor. You want the owners manual, the service(or shop) manual and the engine manual. You are allowed 3 free downloads per day. When you have more questions, include pics to clarify. Good Luck, Rick

 

BTW that is a good tractor.

I personally would drain it,then put fresh fluid and filter on it and run it an hour or less,then drain it and put fresh fluid and filter in and run it a few hours. Then drain it and change fluid and filter again and call it good. Just how I would go about it.

Thank you for your response. I found the manuals, there is no explanation that shows the best way to remove (flush) all of the bad oil from the system?  I have found the filler cap and the relief vent cap. Is there a drain plug that I am not seeing?

Thanks Again

Steve

Yes, sometimes it is a bolt holding the casings together. The owner(or operators') manual should show it. Good Luck, Rick

I went out and looked at my 7016 hydro parts tractor. It is a square head plug on the lower right side of the transaxle (as you are behind the tractor looking at the transaxle.

Thanks so very much. I found the plug. I really like your website. You were so very helpful to me. I have 4 running Simplicity tractors. a 3410,  7013s, 7016 and a 7016h. I also have a running 1955 Allis Chalmers model B farm tractor. There really is too much to list. I am a retired machinist (tool maker) with over 40 years. I have been known to be very resourceful. I will keep an eye on your website.

Thanks again

Steve

Valvoline premium tractor fluid is a direct replacement for AC 821 power fluid and Simplicity power fluid the manual calls for. This stuff is also recommended for the BGB instead of the EP 90 many are using. This fluid has the EP element that is not in type F transmission fluid. This is also the best fluid for your geared tractors as well.
