As far as #3 goes I had the same problem. All I did was pull the
steering wheel with a gear puller and put the plastic bushing back
in. It did seem as my shaft was lose but the bushing fixed it. I
did have a lot of play yet and found my steering box to be lose,
tighted it up and it works great. As far as #1 there are three 3/8
drive plugs in the back those are your fill holes for the three
compartments. To drain the finals I think you have to take the
bottom covers off which face foreward on a loboy. The trans has a
drain plug on the bottom under the tractor, don't forget to change
the filter by the seat. Andy
