Customer Question
My dad has a...

My dad has a ford 555b backhoe. He believe's it is a 86. He is having issues finding what type of transmission fluid it takes as well as wondering if the two yellow caps under the floor of the cab would be where to pour this fluid? He can not find any dipsticks there for the transmission

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

Not sure where to find the serial number and all that is known is that it is a Ford 555b. From what I am told the model plates are wore off.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?

Umm i think that covers our questions for now. Thank you
