Posted by masswalt Mass. (My Page) on

What is the amount of oil that a Hydro Gear Transaxle, 150071 319-0650, Craftsman 42" 19hp Riding Mower, Model#: 917.270780 uses? And what type of oil? I drained the old dirty oil from the transaxle and need to refill it. It looked like 30w oil, and about 1 quart, but not sure. Thanks for your help.

Google Hydro Gear 319-0650

It "appears", from the answers posted, that it takes 81 oz. of 20-50.
It also "appears" that overfilling is a serious faux paux-
