This oldy is new to me. It came without a carb. If anybody may know, If I put a carb on it from a 10 hp Kohler, which has the correct linkage and mount, will it lean out and hurt it or just less powerful than the correct carb ? Also if you please, does anyone know what exactly goes into the hydrostatic trans/diff/fluid pump? I believe it is all one unit as far as the fluid goes. I have read about ATF type F, Regular hydraulic fluid and dextron II but am not sure. The unit has a filter and I would like to put in fresh fluid and a filter before I test start it. More questions to come. Thanks for any help you may offer. Please excuse the repost as I seem to have started in the big tractor forum instead of garden tractor as I should have. Bill

RE: hydro fluid
Sooo nice to hear back from you guys. I am confused though. If on one hand you can use dextron III and for heavier duty use then use 15w40 then I am confounded how atf vs engine oil is even in the same ball park of comparison. I do hope to to use the tractor for heavy use as it has a loader and I will soon have tons of DG/sand to move. I wonder if the hydrostatic trans will hold up vs the clutch type tractors as I have no experience with these hydro's. I have not even driven this thing yet. Am hoping to find a used scraper box as this has a real nice 3pt hitch in the rear and I have nothing yet to take advantage of this great feature plus PTO. TKS Bill
