When reading the tranny oil level in a GT275, do you want to put the dipstick in as far as it will go without screwing it in to take the reading, or do you want to screw it in until it's seated, then unscrew and take a reading?

Usually there's some type of direction but I can't find anything here.

EFN:

Don't know the answer to that one. Still cant find my manual. Hope you find the answer as I just had to add a few oz to my trans. Would like to properly check the fluid.

Good Luck,
Steve

Unscrew ,and check your fluid level.

Oil should between top mark and bottom mark.
Sorry, but for clarification are you saying just put it in as far as it will go without screwing it in, or screw it in, then unscrew, then check?

The first line of your post could be interpretted either way....

Yeah , it can; in the hydro you screw in to check the fluid level.If you add transmission fluid drive around and do a forward and reverse and then on a level place recheck the fluid level to be sure your then up to the top mark.

Per owners manual for X748:

1-park machine safely
2-slide seat fully forward
3-remove dipstick and wipe it with a clean rag
4-Install dipstick until it rests on top of fill tube. Do not tighten dipstick
5-Remove dipstick
6-Check oil level on dipstick. Oil should be between crosshatch marks on dipstick.
7-Add oil if low
8-Install and tighten dipstick
9-Start engine and run for a few minutes
10-Recheck oil level after stopping engine. Add oil as needed.
11-Return seat to operating position

I suppose it's the same for the GT275, then again, maybe not.
