MAINTENANCE
TRANSAXLES
Inattention
to proper safety, operation, or
maintenance
procedures could result in personal
injury, or damage to the equipment.
Jacobsen
recommends
returning
the machine to your
authorized
CGC, Inc. dealer for service or repair.
Perform transaxle maintenance with the engine off,
spark plug wires disconnected and PTO disengaged.
TRANSAXLE
FLUID CHANGE
Change the transaxle fluid every 200 hours of
operation.
It is essential that the exterior of the
transaxle be free of debris, prior to fluid maintenance.
1.
Remove the three 1/4" filter guard screws and
filter guard A. Remove the oil filter B from the
transaxle and discard.
Dispose of used oil in ac-
cordance with local requirements.
2.
Wipe the filter base surface off and apply a film
of new oil to the gasket of the new replacement
filter. Install the new filter by hand, turn 3/4 to
one full turn after the filter gasket contacts the
filter base surface.
3.
Re-install the filter guard and torque the three
screws to 65 in. Ibs. each.
4.
Remove cap C, fill the transaxles through the
expansion tank D with approximately 2 quarts of
SAE 20W-50 engine oil PER TRANSAXLE.
Do not overfill! If you overfill the transaxle while the unit
is "cold", it may overflow as it reaches normal operating
temperatures.
The oil level should not be above the
manufacturer's suggestions.
This will allow the space
needed for the oil to expand as it warms up.
5.
After starting engine, check the fluid level and
continue to add oil to overflow tank D to fill line
on tank.
6.
Purge the transaxles, following the purging pro-
cedures on Page 29.
