I am changing the lube in the trans of my '89 Ingersoll 3014. Now days they are recommending installing 3 qt. The fill plug only allows 1 qt. How full will the fill plug allow? Is it necessary to remove the trans. top plate to fill it?

The newer tractors only take the pint.

No on the cover plate. I kept a gear oil bottle to fill through the hole by just squeezing the bottle. And you can use gear oil.

I use one of the mounting bolt holes, much easier.  Just remove the right rear mount bolt, that hole goes all the way into the case.  Use a small funnel and pour directly into the bolt hole until the oil runs out the check plug hole.  Install the plug and bolt, done!

 

BTW, I always use the  older lube level recommendation, as I believe having the bushings continuously oil-bathed is more important than preventing seal seepage.  I've used gear oil and motor oil with not observed  any difference in performance.  (and my first Case was bought in 1979, so lots of 'test' time)
