Whoever told you to use 5w30 oil was wrong! 20w50 is correct for the transmissions, as evidenced below:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/craftsman-parts/craftsman-parts/Repair-Maintenance/Questions-Answers/ZT-7000-Transmission-Fluid-Type-10727772/Model-107277720/0247/1506000/355126?modelNumber=107277720

thank you for using managemylife.com. this zt 7000, model 107.277720, has a left and right hand transmission. both of these transmissions will use 20w50 motor oil. if there are no level markings on the oil reservoirs measure from the top of the oil port to the oil level and it should be 3/4 to 1.5 inches.
hopfully this will help get the transmissions serviced. if you have any further questions or inquiries, please don't hesitate to ask. thank you for using managemylife.com.

Where do find the drain for transmission fluid


Hydrostatic Transmission Fluid is actually 10W-50 synthetic motor oil (like mobil). Do not use hydraulic fluid or transmission fluid.

Hydro static transmissions on most lawn tractors are very similar. Most of them are made by one or two manufacturers. Tuff Torq makes a lot of them. They definitely make all the John Deere lawn tractor hydro drives. The lawn tractor manufacturers (like JD) often say they are sealed and not serviceable. That is flat out, a lie. All of the JD hydros, and most all others, are serviceable. A complete line of rebuild/replacement parts can be found at Tuff Torq. Info and instructions can be found there. It's quite likely they made your tranny too.

Additionally, I have found that the mower manufacturers fill them (or spec them) with motor oil, 10W-30W. In the service manual, and at the hydro manufacturer, you are told if your tractor is used in extreme or heavy duty situations it's best to drain the oil and replace it with 10W-50 synthetic motor oil (like mobil). Truth is the tranny should have this oil from the get go. It will give you more power and extend the life of the tranny. The mower manufacturers are all just being cheap. They figure why not, you're the one who has to pay for the early failure. Oh yeah, one other minor detail, the tranny manufacturer also recommends regular oil changes, like every 100 hours.

Virtually all of these trannys have a black plug on the top. You have to remove the tranny from the mower (not a difficult things to do, takes about 30 min). Pull that black plug and turn the tranny upside down for about 30 min to completely drain. Most hold about 2 quarts. Flip it back, right side up, and refill. Install plug and reinstall tranny. Note: under the plug there is often a magnet which collects metal shavings. Lift this magnet out while you have the plug out, clean it and replace it. It may fall out while the tranny is upside down. When you refill the fluid just keep filling till it comes up within a quarter inch of the plug. You may have to go through a bleed process after reinstalling the tranny. The tuff torq site explains the bleed process.

I have a Husqvarna YTH24K48 mower, it barely moves forward, but does good in reverse, any suggestions?


Might be that you need to bleed the tranny. Or perhaps the tranny has an internal problem. Following are some general notes. Go to the websites and review the tranny instructions.

Tranny slips when i accelerate from dead stop/


Before I would drop the transmission to replace it, I would add about 1/2 cup of brake fluid to it, and when you take it from PARK, (to go in forward motion) pull the gear selector all the way to "1" and as it starts rolling , then bump it up into drive.
The brake fluid will "soften" the seals inside the transmission and "clean" some of the trash off the bands in it.
This should be your decision to try, I did it and after about 300 miles, just put it in "drive" as normal, no need to replace fluid sooner, just normal intervals.
Use this info. at your discretion, best of luck with it!

I have a 79 firebird that hasn't been used for years. i want to flush all the fluids add new ones, jump the car and see if it runs. i just don't know where to start. how do i do a fluid flush?


ok.. oil simply change it and the filter don't forget to add oil to rubber ring.. water jus unhook the hose at the bottom of the radiator using pliers and make sure you have a drain pan.. you can run water through it if it is unclean, otherwise you shouldn't need to flush, then reattach hose and clamp.. fill to top.. the water pump on the vehicle will need to be rotated or cranked to get water into the engine, and refill... be careful not to crank the water pump by hand because that will mess up the timing and you will need to redo that.. tranny fluid should not be changed because if there is a certain amount of metal shavings already in it clean fluid will ruin it, but i suggest checking the fluid level and maybe topping it off if needed there should be a bolt on the side of the transmission that you can take out and put your finger in the hole and the fluid should reach the hole and no lower if it pours out its fine let it level out too much tranny fluid is just as bad as not enough.. you will need to have the car on jack stands as level as possible to do this... also you can disconnect the fuel lines at the carburetor and connect a hose to it turn the key on and the fuel pump should pump out the old gasoline..
