    JD model R

    One if things I enjoy about old tractors is that you never stop learning. Can anyone advise if there is a way of checking the transmission oil level on the model R? I know there is a point for a pressure gauge to check pressure (why they never connected it to a gauge beats me) but no way of checking the level?

    As best I can remember, the transmission case and differential housing share the same oil.

    If your "R" is equipped with a Power Shaft(PTO), the Transmission/Diff Oil Level is checked from a pipe-plug(#55, or #56) on the left side of the Power Shaft housing.

    If your "R" is NOT equipped with a Power Shaft, the Transmission/Diff Oil Level is checked from a plug(red arrow) on the left side of the differential cover.

    Many thanks. Yes I have PTO, which I have never used.
