Re: Old but good Simplicity 4212H
Finally have had enough time to get back to work on this mower.
The Hydro is an Eaton 7... I now have their service manual available online and only have one issue. I have drained the fluid and starting to put fresh fluid in. According to their manual, you remove the vent plug then fill the reservoir with fresh fluid until the fluid runs out of the vent hole. My problem is the oil once poured into the reservoir - it does not go into the transmission... if it does, it is very very slow. It will take a long time to fill the transmission at this rate... Am I missing something? or is this normal.
I have tried rotating the wheels and the input shaft but no measurable success.
any suggestions?? and thanks to Jacks for having the parts to get this project back in the yard.
