So far I have not found anything in the owners manual.
You just need to keep the oil temp below 100 centigrade. Plug the dipstick and fill the tranny housing to the gills and you should be ok for a while. You can also improvise a shaft brake with a couple of 2x4's and hose clamps if you don't have a strap wrench and you are a long way from the barn.
