    How much oil in 125 ?

    I have an 8-yr old model 125 lawn tractor and I change the oil/filter regularly, but something is always bugging me. When I ask at the JD dealers and even when I purchase the service kit, I am told to use 1 qt of oil. But, if I use 1 qt and check the dipstick, it tells me I need to add oil, may be another 3/4 of a quart. I checked the manual but didn't find this information (maybe I missed it each time). How much oil does the 125 take?

    Not to be sarcastic but it as much oil as the dipstick says. To give you an example I did an oil change on my 318 and bought everything separately, oil, filter and what not. The next time I needed to change the oil I got the kit from Green Farm Parts. The filter in the kit was physically smaller they the one I picked up separately, I needed less oil on the second change.
    John Deere 318, 50in deck, 54in blade w/ power angle

    Looking for JD Parts check here on JD's official parts website.

    Have no idea where to start with JD Parts check here for a how to.
