By the time you look for a pump you can have the 10 or so bolts and clips off and drop the transaxle and dump the oil. Its easier than you think to get it out.That makes sense....:fing20:
I think I will change the oil without pulling the tranny out. I'll need to look for a pump to get the oil out.
Then you can be assured you get it all out and can clean the housing and put in fresh synthetic.
I just recently did this on my L130 and I'm very glad I pulled it too. I had lots of mud from the previous owner caked into the fins that was holding in the heat. I never would have seen this mud and been able to clean it out if I just pumped the oil out.
I put in Mobil1 10w30 synthetic and she is very happy. I just mow and pull a small trailer. I had 75 hours on mine when I changed it.
Don't know how accurate the info is but there was a recommendation posted as coming from Tuff Torq to change it at 50 hours and every 200 after that. An afternoon and a few bucks for new fluids was worth it to me.
