    Yes, I did mean getting in and out of. The salesman was a woman and she said I had a "little tractor"! I've never been told I have a little tractor.

    Rest of the pics attached.

    Last one (lower radiator hose) added, by request. I actually skipped this intentionally as I don't like the way it turned out, blocking the oil fill. This is how I interpreted the instructions, but I plan to get another lower radiator hose and try it in the bottom straight (vertical) section when it's time to do a radiator flush in a year or so.

    Diz,

    My John deere dealer gave me a good suggestion about the heater hose shut off valve.

    He said to mount it under the heater in the cab so that you can control the amount of water/heat coming into the cab. Also, it's a lot easy to get to when you want to shut it off or turn in on.

    Did you have any problems with leaks with the adapter for the top heater hose?

    That's a good idea, plenty of room there too, I'd think.

    I did have leaking in the fitting attached to the thermostat housing. Couldn't tighten it down anymore as it was hitting the temp sender, so I just added a layer of teflon tape. Hopefully that'll hold. That fitting was easily 50% of the time it took me to do the whole heater.

    I didn't install the shut off valve on mine. if you close the valve there is no coolant flow passing by the temp sender for the temp light so if the engine over heats it may be to late by time the light comes on if it even does.

    I found this valve and installed it instead of the one curtis gives you.Heater Valves & Cables I also ordered the cable made a bracket and mounted it on the side of the heater.Now it is as easy as pulling a lever to control the amount of heat.Here are some pics of it.
