Need help with my new tube frame!!

So i just picked up this new tractor with a snowblower the other day and starting to dive into it. It currently has an 18 hp brigs but the old owner said it used to have a 14hp. So my list of questions starts as is this a 1455? He painted over EVERYTHING and i know next to nothing so it's a guessing game for me.

My other questions that may be in the wrong area are
1. He added a pipe to the rear end with a hole drilled in the cap is this necessary to release pressure because it sprays fluid out of it, maybe its overfilled?

2. How much and what type of fluid goes into the rear end? Going to drain it to see if it's overfilled in hopes that it is that simple.

Thank you in advance for all help it is really appreciated!

Not sure exactly what model you have. Could be one of several. Hydrostatic transmission looks like. Repowered tube tractors are a challenge, hard to find room under the hood for both battery and gas tank. It should have plenty of power.

Re: Need help with my new tube frame!!

Just a guess, presuming that the hood in place belongs to that particular tractor. Looks like it is flat without the added hump used with the ohv Tecumseh motors. That should suggest the 1256 or 1257 model originally using the Wisconsin motor. Again just a guess, and I'm not an expert on these. Possibly someone can confirm or correct my assumption. I also would guess that a manual for the 1256 ought to give you helpful info.

Re: Need help with my new tube frame!!

Alright, thanks! He said it had a 14 hp in it prior to the swap so maybe hood isn't original or something who knows really haha! Are all of the manuals for these tube frames similar? I'd like to drain the fluid and refill it but I don't want to put the wrong amount or wrong type of fluid in.

Re: Need help with my new tube frame!!

I think it was an H14, if the original engine was a 14HP. The hood decal does not match the steering wheel cap vintage so that has been replaced. Everything else would look correct for a H14 from what I see minus hood, engine and paint of course

Bolens called for type "f" fluid in the hydro , you can find the Tubeframe service manual with grease locations and capacity for fluids

Thank you that is super helpful! Do you know off hand if the hydro is supposed to have a pressure relieve port on the rear? The guy rigged up what i assume to be a filling port on the back but it just dumps fluid out of it when it runs can I just put a normal plug in its place??

Yeah haha the end cap has a hole drilled in it as if it lets the hydro breathe. Is the hole necessary or can I just rip all that off and put a solid cap in its place? Im guessing it was a "well this plug fits lets just use it" sort of thing but don't want to mess it up if the original plug had a hole in it

Any idea as to what would make the hydro pedal stick? Its like 50/50 on if it works perfect or not but when it sticks it literally wont move from "neutral" position. Its as if the brake is on but its not then randomly it will just start working again like nothing happened so far it has only happened from a stopped position but I cant figure out what is holding it up. Filled the hydro fluid back up with ATF like it called for and it is AWESOME haha. Coming out of the garage I had it gased up pretty high and it popped a wheelie coming out I couldnt believe it.

Medinaman,

The fill plug is also the fluid full level. So, all the extra piping should go.

Best, Paul B
