I finally found the drain plug on my hydrostatic trans thanks to your forum!

Got this LX188 used awhile back and the trans fluid probably has never been changed since the assembly line in 1994.

Drained the black crude out and replaced with a full synthetic oil 10w30. After the oil recirculated through the trans, it sure felt great when driving it around. New oil does make a difference. It took 3.6 qts. I used a no name Auto Zone oil.

I'm envious of the newer JD lawn tractors having the 5 gallon bucket holder, so I had to fabricate one up to fit this tractor. Provided a couple of pics for you all. It's getting painted JD implement black and the black JD logo buckets will arrive next week.

Take care and happy tractoring
