2210 Transmission / Hydraulic fluid fill tube

Hi folks. I have a JD 2210 with 950 hours. My 200 hour service is due and I will perform it myself for the third time. This time I wanted to use my mytevac fluid extractor to siphon out the tranny fluid so I would not need a bathtub under the drain plug. However, when I tried to pass the hose down the fill tube it just bottomed out about 2" in. Figuring the tube might be too large I tried to pass a much smaller tube, same issue. I know the fluid goes down this tube just fine so now my curiosity is peeked. This time I tried to pass a wire coat hanger down the tube, same outcome. I thought perhaps the tube opening was on the side, so I tried to find this opening with the wire by putting it in from all different angles and still I cannot find ANY opening. I know its there, but where? Anybody have any luck trying to siphon through this fill tube?
thanks much

Not likely going to happen with any of these small hydro transmissions. There is all kind of stuff in the way on the way down.


I had a similar issue with my F150 when I got it - could not get more than a pint of oil out of the dipstick tube. This is why.
