Hydrogear transaxels take a multi grade oil 20-50 the filler is a brass plug on the top, there should be a 1/4" air gap at the top to allow for expasion, Tuff Torq units also take a multi grade oil 10-30, these units normally have a resevoir on the top with upper and lower fill marks.

SOURCE: Changing the oil filter on a lawn tractor

If it is a screw on type oil filter, apply a film of oil on seal, then screw on. If you want to, go ahead and pour some oil in the filter, in my opinion the oil will circulate faster if there is some oil already in the filter.

It means change the oil. It will come on every 50 hours regardless when the oil was last changed, then go off after a few hours.

Will a toro rear end work on a craftsman 42 in?


I'am not sure,but a Craftsman tractor has a Peerless Transaxle,model # LTH2000. You didn't say,if the tractor you have is a manual transmission or a transaxle type.I will say this,that at Craftsman,they usually have their own brand of transmissions. Another brand might not be adaptable. I know this answer,may not be what your looking for.There is so many,ways a transmission can be installed on the different,brand of tractors. I would call Sears,and ask them,if a Toro would adapt,to a Craftsman tractor,you might get lucky. Sincerely,Brad Locke 11/23/15

I have a craftsman 24hp model # 917.28970, how do one change/add fluid to transaxle or change. Is a filter required, and if so, which one? What type of oil is required. r


The fluid has been added to the transaxle,at the factory. You do not have to add or service it for the life of the tractor. That is unless,you have removed the transaxle and repaired it in some way. I don't know if this is a new tractor or not,if it is and you are having a problem with the transaxle,and is not working correctly. Try this,Sears fix to this situation is: Move the tractor forward about 5 feet then move it back 5 feet. What this does is,to eliminate air trapped in the transaxle. Sears,claims this may take several times. Why they didn't do this when they first serviced it,is anybodys guess. I'am late in answering your question,anyway i hopes this helps. It you have an Owners Manual,it will state this procedure in your manual. B. Locke

How do you add pump oil and transaxle oil to transmission on craftsman mower 917.289140?


These are sealed transaxles and normally don't need oil added. There is a vent cap where oil can be added but this is normally done when the transaxles are being repair while removed from the mower.

Tansmission oil type for model# 917.254740


Hi,

Your Craftsman is equipped with a Agri-Fab transaxle, the predecessor to the Hydro-Gear brand. The recommended oil is 10w-30. Unfortunately, the transaxle on your craftsman tractor is not serviceable. It is sealed for life. The only way to change the oil is to remove the unit from the tractor, tip it upside down and drain the oil out the reservoir plug.

Hi, I have a Craftsman Garden Tractor 18HP Twin, model mo. 917.255919 that has a transaxle leak. The transaxle takes about 5 quarts of SAE 30 Motor Oil. I took the transaxle apart last summer to fix a gear...


I would drain transaxel out and refill with 80w90 gear oil. I think the 30 w is way to thin. You can try some lucas trasmisson sealer and conditioner and see if that helps.
If you have to remove the transaxel I would use hi-temp silicon sealer to seal all seams and arou
nd axel shafts. I have a six year old craftsman garden tractor 18 h.p. twin mod.number 917.2722751 and I'm nearly sure it uses the same transaxel so if you do have to get into the transaxel the oil seal part number is 788088A.I can not find the suggested quanity of oil but I just fill to top thru oil fill plug on top front of transaxel.Hope this helps you. Thanks
