1) I am going through my tractor and changing all fluids, filters, spark plugs, fuel filter, and greasing all the fittings. When I changed the hydro oil in the system the manual says it should take 5.6 liters. I ended up putting a little over 7 in it? But that is approximately what came out of it. The manual says I should fill it up to about 5-6 from the top of the neck of the tank and thats what I have. Is this normal?

2) I went to carquest and they cross referenced a oil filter for me and it seems like it is shorter in length than the one that is currently in there. The existing is approx. 5'' long where as the replacement is a little over 3'' long. I gave carquest the filter #122-0645 for my onan 16 hp engine. Just want to make sure I dont fry the engine.

3) I have hear that you can change the high/low/neutral lever from manual to hyrdaulic or electric some way some how? Ever hear of that and it that recommended?

Thanks for any info you can give me!

Can`t explain your fill capacity dilemma. Possibly related to where you drained it. I wouldn`t worry about it, provided it`s filled to the proper level with MOTOR OIL

There is a long and short version of filter, either is fine

Considering that you have to finesse the manual lever into proper engagement, I think powering it would be a bad idea.

yes i did use motor oil for the hydro system. thanks for your insight. I will change the oil tonight then with my replacement filter. The manual says something about a foam ring around the filter. mine is missing which i am sure isnt that uncommon. do i need that? or is it fine without it?

I believe the foam ring helps keep the cooling air from escaping around the filter
" " they are no longer factory available (?)
Wouldn`t hurt to craft one up, but I`m sure that are many running without it

The gears used in the trans-axle are straight cut. Unlike a manual transmission in a car, there are no synchronizer rings that line up the teeth with each other. In order to shift from Hi to Lo or from Lo to Hi, you often have to rock the tractor with some body English to get the teeth on the gears to line up correctly. There is no real need to convert the shifter from manual operation. Lo Range is used for doing all of the work. Hi Range is only used to transport the tractor from the garage to where the work takes place.

The oil filter ring is indeed an air gasket. Prevents the cooling air from dumping out the oil filter opening.

They ARE available from Onan and I always try to keep stock on hand ... about $7. Drop me an eMail to [email protected] if you are interested to pursue one.

As noted ... the 0645 is a short filter, but I generally spec the 0800 which is a higher capacity and fits the tractors nicely. Also lets you get access to it a bit more conveniently come time for the next oil change (I keep those in stock, too).
