because it is a sealed unit I have been told I have to replace the entire transmission. the cost of transmission is just about the cost of new tractor. my question is, now, that the hole has been sealed. could I drill a hole some place on the transmission houseing and pour oil thru the hole and then tap the hole and install a plug. This seems like it might work, and if it could work, what type and how much of the fluid.
