JD,

You need the hydraulic coupler kit. I'm not sure of the p/n, but will check.

Yes,

I've never installed one, but I'll bet you don't spill that much and can just top off what was lost. Then again, it may be a good excuse for a tranny fluid change.

You might want to pm Unit40 as he just went through this on his post which is something that goes along with the couplers: http://www.mytractorforum.com/showthread.php?t=54837

Fluid loss is next to nothing as long as none of the spool valves are pushed in either direction. Just remove the plugs, screw in the appropriate quick-coupler half and tighten them. Don't forget to use thread sealant.

You can check your fluid level after but you won't be adding anything.

jd power, i installed a blade with the angling cylinder this week on my 425aws. the part #for the 4 coupler kit is BM17763.
there is not much oil that drains from the ports when you remove the plugs.
