Well, if you plan on keeping the tractor, you should drop the pump and clean all the sludge out. Post back if you want info on doing that. Otherwise, let it drain overnight & fill it up. See tips 3 & 4.

Contrary to conventional wisdom, not a lot of water gets in the oil from the shifter boot. Of course, if it's bad, replace it, but you get water from the draft control spring & the dipstick. But, most water is just a byproduct of the heating/cooling cycle of the oil. I've seen the pictures of an experiment to test the 'leaky shifter boot' theory. With no shifter boot installed, a lot of water was poured over the transmission cover sitting over a 5 gallon bucket. Result? No water in the bucket.
