Your Onan engine will do excellent with Mobil One 0w40, Mobile One 5w30.

DO NOT use hydraulic oil in the transmission/transaxle, you will destroy it. Your tractor uses an Eaton 11 Hydrostatic transmission pump with the oil resevour being the cast iron transaxle. The WheelHorse transaxle is as rugged as they come. It uses a solid cast iron housing, case hardened intermediate gears and forged differential gears with an eight pinion differential.

Your transaxle requires 10w40 synthetic or conventional oil as well as a wix 51410 filter or the OEM wheelHorse filter. It should be changed every 100 hours with conventional oil or 250 hours with synthetic. DO NOT use hydraulic oil!

Use 10W30 or SAE 30 oil in the motor crankcase, and the hydrostatic transmission use hydraulic oil # 10 weight.

    Incorrect, DO NOT use hydraulic fluid in that system, it requires 10w40 motor oil, synthetic prefered.

More than likely this tractor has a diaphragm fuel pump. The only way of testing these kinds of pumps is to take them apart and make sure the diaphragm is not tore.
