JD. 5603

Not sure about the best fluid to use. We have a 5603. Do yourself a favor and remove the plug below the pto clutch. They plug it at the factory and the cavity will get water inside. The pto is a dry clutch and if water sits on it for an extended time it seizes up. You have to split the tractor to fix it.

Thanks for the reply’s  I seem to remember people saying that you can’t put hYTRAN in the older deers because of the brakes.    
 The water was added to it. They got a old bucket and wasn’t paying attention 😫

I think the hytran/JD issues is that they use a water soluble adhesive for their friction plates in the transmission. Hytran will suspend the water and remove the friction from the steel backing

Even worse I had just changed it the day before. It was a little over full and clear.  Dad 85 year old, thought it was out.  We flushed with new cheap oil and a gal of diesel.      Then put new jd oil back in. But 3 weeks later it's acting up again
