Good morning and happy new year.

I just joined this group yesterday. I have no experience with Toro equipment or zero turns. I am helping a friend out by going over his Toro Timecutter.

I am replacing all of the belts on this machine. The pumps seem to function well, and I would like to change out the fluid.

There are tubes that extend up behind the seat that connect to the pumps. There is piece with a small opening at the top of each tube and a cap that fits over that insert. Apparently it provides a vent for the pump. I can not see any way that was designed to check the level of the fluid in each pump. Likewise I don't see any way of draining the pumps to facilitate renew fluid.

Any help in checking the fluid level as well as draining the pumps would be greatly appreciated.

The pumps on this particular machine do not provide a way to drain the fluid. Apparently if you remove a plate on the bottom of the pump the fluid will drain. However, I was warned by a tech that after doing that many times the area around the plate will leak. I was told that if you added too much fluid the excess would be discharged through the breather tubes.

It seems like an odd setup but that was what I was told.
