ss12 got a couple cents left for this one too. may put a couple quart diesel fuel / kerosene jack it up and free hand turn each tire to spin the gears drain and refill. never have done this just a thought. might be best just to refill with straight 30 weight motor oil i think capacity is around 5 quarts, normal use time and drain and see what it looks and feels like (gritty dirty water) then refill and repeat until you find a desired oil condition. again just a thought > tim

Kerosene was the trick. I drained and recipes rwice with kerosene and now my oil looks as it did new so that's a good tip there

I was thinking. How much is involved in making this transaxle full locking. This machine is only for pulling its a ss16
