    Default help needed to find parts for heatr in cab

    Parts for a 2305 and looking for parts that only Curtis cab seems to have
    Where besides a JD dealer ,then ordered from Curtis Cab, could I get the fittings to connect a cab heater.
    I bought a heater from a person and it had no fittings with the unit.
    Checking w/ local jd dealer he wanted over $125.00 just for the 2 of the 3 items I would need . Then checked with dealer where my son-in-law bought his jd and they wanted close to a $100. but they would mail me the parts. Parts would be coming from Curtis Cab,

    One is a 3/8 univ tee w/ plastic bushing and the other was a 1" tee to 3/8 in middle.
    I have searched net and had no luck finding the univ tee.

    Had gone to Lowes and tried using 3/8 brass to make the tee. but will not tread in

    I just hate thinking of paying $100. just for these two items.
    Have fun and be safe !!!

    Ask a plumber or stop by a good plumbing supplier. I can tell you as a plumbing and heating contractor it can't be that difficult to match up.

    It seems like the 3/8 should thread in , the sending unit threads into the brass tee. Just connot get the nipple to thread into the tractor part.

    Sounds like you need to make sure the threads and size are a match. What did you remove to gain access to the hole? Whatever was removed could be checked against a tap or die to confirm whether you have the proper size nipple. It may be metric or fractional and you need to know for sure.

    I removed the temp sending unit. I had a 3/8 brass tee the sending unit would screw into the tee. but could not get the 3/8 nipple into the sending unit location.
    according to Curtis Cabs website the fittings are NPT

    If the sender unit you removed was 3/8 npt and yet the 3/8 npt nipple will not screw in you should chase the threads with a 3/8 npt tap. I would not be to concerned about finding the specialty fitting in the picture but would instead buy a 3/8 hose nipple and a standard 3/8 tee and make it up.
