    I just bought a used Cub Cadet 2164 (16hp Vanguard). I want to change the fluid in the hydro unit - what type fluid is recommended and what (approx.)is the capacity?

    For the record, I only find the following #'s on my hydro unit:

    model# 618-3081
    serial# Q-020420

    Don't know what brand it is - hydro gear???

    I'm not sure exactly what typr of fluid they call for so I would suggest you go to lowes or your Cub dealer. They have OEM Cub Cadet transmission fluid. I'm not sure what weight it is so by buying the Cub Cadet brand you will know your using the correct fluid.

    Also, i'm not 100% sure but I think mtd makes their own hydro transmissions but I may be wrong.
