Did you drive it 20 feet or did you push it 20 feet?

That should have Red Type A automatic transmission fluid in it.That looks like that Traveler hydraulic oil from TSC.That stuff is way to thick.It's a 30 wt hydro oil.ATF Type A is much much thinner.

 

Page 11 This manual.It shows how to fill and check Both the Hydro and the Differential oils.

http://gardentractor...model-91725500/

 

If it's puking fluid then it's to full or to thick and can't burp the air out without pushing fluid out.

 

I filled mine up till it was between 1/4 and 1/2 way up the tube.Manual says if fluid is visible on the tube then the fluid level is good.There is not a fill mark on the tube.Just put it in till you can see it on the tube and your done.

 

If you fill it to full it won't have enough room for expansion and it will puke fluid out all over the place and possible blow out the 1" O ring between the oil sump and pump housing or the pan gasket.

Well I got it changed, put dextron 3 in it. Yea the stuff in it was a lot thicker than the dextron. Trans is a lot more responsive and it hasn't puked it up yet. Filled it half way up the stick. I put about 1 1/2 qt in it then run it ,it was on jack stands, worked lever back forth slow a dozen times, checked it again it took a little more,put it back together and drove it. I drained the oil out of the m wards 16 hp rear end, ,gear trans don't know what the hell run out of it but it was thick, tan colored,stunk, put new 80'90 back in it. Made it happy.

If it was tan, it probably has water in it.

A lot of the tractors get oil around the gear shifter.
Something to look into would be an umbrella on the shaft, made out of old inner tube to help relocate the water.
