gear oil

Postby karl » Fri Sep 20, 2013 7:25 pm

I want to change the gear oil in my tfr. How much should I put in it? Is it possible to over fill it and cause damage???
thanks for any help

I believe the TFR gearbox has three access holes. A drain hole, observation port, and a fill hole. In some gearboxes, the observation port and fill hole are the same. Remove screw plugs from all ports to drain ( preferably when gearbox is warm), reinstall drain plug, fill gearbox until fluid reaches observation hole, reinstall observation hole plug, and fill hole screw, and take it for a ride. Recheck level at observation hole, top off if necessary.

After making a decison, have no regrets.
