    I want to service the hydro in my JcPenny MTD 990. The manual say to us Fram PH16 filter and 20 Weight oil with added zinc. I was going to use a NAPA/WIX filter instead but I'm unsure about the oil. I looked around and straight 20W oil with zinc doesn't show up. That leaves me with 2...

    Are the 3 point hitch parts interchangeable between the 960 and 990? Manuals show that the draft bar connects differently between the two models, but the parts look the same. The 960 looks like it attaches to be bottom of rear frame plate assembly, while the 990 attaches to the rear axle...
