Looks like Im gonna be getting a John Deere Hydrostatic 175 (1988-1990?). It has an Eaton Model 7 Transmission. It appears to use a 30 weight oil that JD manual says
NOT to change. Well, after 30 years I am begging to differ? Would you change it and if so, what would you pour in to replace the oil?

No - not unless it is contaminated in some way (not likely)

Not familiar with that transmission, but it would be an
interesting exercise.
IF it has a drain plug it would be easier to do.

Tough Torque trannies usually have to be pulled out and
torn apart to change fluid, yet they 'recommend' fluid changed
every 200 hours give or take.

they spec synthetic 15W-50.
