    Default Warning!! Digital Instrument Cluster and Water!!

    A word of caution for owners of tractors (BX24 and BX25 for sure) with the instrument cluster with digital tach/hour meter. I was washing my tractor (no smart comments!!) after heavy work in ash and dry dirt and decided to take off the screen that covers the battery and rinse out the radiator and battery area. I finished with that and while washing the rest of the tractor, I noticed water had gotten into the instument cluster. So I removed it and removed back cover and front plexiglass and allowed it to dry in the sun.

    So, I will now remove the cluster when spraying under the dash like that again.

    Or Pre-spray with WD-40, which stands for Water Dispersant.

    Wasn't there some kind of recall about the gauge cluster and water getting in them?

    i use a garden hose with practically no pressure, almost like a light rain, and a scrub brush. i try to get as little water on the instrument pannel as possible. i don't spray anything like wd-40 (degreaser) on the tractor since it probably isn't good for most plastics and rubber. i don't see the benefit of spraying degreaser on the tractor before washing for the purpose of trying to keep water out. if you don't think it should get wet, and it doesn't need to be cleaned, don't hose it down.
