The hydraulic fluid began to overflow from filler cap when I went to operate downriggers. I Fill tank was at "full" level prior to this. I have not operated again since this happen, any ideas why this might occur. Thank you

Sounds like you overfilled the reservoir. Where did you add the fluid? Did you use the fluid level check plugs to determine the reservoir was full?

I'm trying to recall how that reservoir is constructed,
is it in both uprights with a cross over between them on the bottom.
If so your beather on the other side upright could be clogged or the crossover plugged

Your tractor should have a front engine-mounted hydraulic pump to operate the loader and backhoe. The hydraulic reservoir for this pump is normally in the loader frame itself. The drain hole for the loader hydraulics should be on the bottom of the loader frame, directly under one of the frame uprights, and the fill hole should be near the top of one of the uprights

The transmission on that tractor is a separate reservoir. The fill hole is on the top of the transmission next to the main shifter, which should have a large hex head plug/cap in it that also has a dipstick on the underside of the cap. The drain plug is under the transmission.

The rear axle center housing is also a separate reservoir for the 3 point hydraulics (yours may or may not have the 3 point lift) and for lubricating the rear axle. The rear end/3 point hydraulics drain plug is on the bottom of the rear axle center housing below the differential. The fill hole is below your right butt cheek when you're sitting on the tractor, and should have a large hex head plug.

Fluid level check plugs (SQUARE-HEADED pipe plugs) for the transmission & rear end are as illustrated by the attached photo (photo compliments of UltradogMN). The plug on the right in photo is for the transmission fluid level. Plug on left is for rear differential fluid level. You pour fluid into the transmission filler port till it dribbles out the check level port. Same method for checking fluid level in the rear differential section.

Do transmission and rear axle housing use same hydraulic fluid?

thank you
