I have drained the fluid and installed a fresh filter. The tranny fill hole under the seat has a screw in dip stick. My question is, when filling, do I check the fluid level with the dip stick screwed in or resting on the top of the fill hole threads?
Nope, no manual yet.......

Thanks

Hi,
I am new but own a 425 and just looked up in the owners manual...it says in CAPS do not screw it in...let it rest on the top of the fill tube to check the level.

Ok, gotcha. I'll go with the consensus and check the fluid level with the dip stick resting on the top of the fill tube.
Thanks much.

You can? All I've been able to do is view JD manuals not download. Is there a
link I'm missing?

Please point me in the right direction to do this. I have been able to download pfd Maintenance Reminder Sheets with part numbers and such but no manuals.

Hi mjac and Grateful11 ,

Here is the directions I used and stumbled upon ...

1.) Go to JD's Homepage ...
2.) At the bottom of the page go to (About Our Site) ...
3.) Scroll down to (Residential Products & Equipment) and go to Operator's
Manuals ...
4.) Go to (Search For Operator's Manuals) ...
5.) Put in 425 , hit search ...
6.) They do say they have a limited availability of older models , but there is
a manual for the Serial # 070001- ...
