    It takes a allen wrench, I dont have the size info, I have to go out to the shop to take a look and I am not there to do that now.
    I am sure someone will chime in with it.

    Here is the info on the change and when it took place.

    August 1, 2008.
    Discontinued use of 10w-40 motor oil in all Hustler Mini Z's, Super Mini Z's,
    Hustler Z's and Super Z's hydraulic systems to 20w-50 motor oil.

    I dont believe you will hurt the system is it is small amounts to just top off the system.

    Thanks PJ for the info on the oil and drain plug.
    Since I stripped out the drain plug wrench hole trying to take it out. I gave up a few years ago and so now I take the filter base loose and push it down to drain it out.
    I may try again to open the drain. It is so bad now I could not tell what type of wrench to use anymore.

    I would use a socket type drive for the allen, then you can drive it in with a hammer with a larger size to get the plug out, buy a new plug and install it after.
