How does one go about checking the oil in the gearboxe(s) on the deck on an Exmark Navigator?
I believe you need to use a pump to suck the old oil out. There is no drain plug. Refill through the same hole.
There is 3 plugs on the front side of the gear boxes. Left, middle, and right. Pull out plugs and check/fill oil there. Changing it, you are supposed to pull the whole assembly off per the manual. I havent done mine yet. I plan on it here in a couple weeks.
Like walker said is what I do on my Walker decks I use an old soap or lotion bottle pump stick it down to bottom start pumping will not get every drop but you will get most of it out than fill back up to recommended level I usually run mine about a half inch or inch below hole where you feel it other wise you pull top cap which if like walker has 4 little bolts in each corner but than you will probably have to replace gaskets or pull plugs and tip deck over and drain them pumping it out is easiest solution
Look, it's covered in yer owners manual, no?

BigFish, there is no mention in the owners manual of draining/refilling deck gearbox oil. I checked before I posted.
In addition, I just found this thread
As did I.
There most assuredly is.
Trust me...ya DO trust me, right?
Could you just use a hand pump ?
Are they worried about not getting all the old fluid out?
