    180 F or 194 F thermostat? (JD 820)

    180 F or 194 F thermostat? Preventative maintenance on a 1973 JD 820. Western Oregon is a fairly temperate part of the world. I can't tell if there is much of a difference for one vs another. Any thoughts? AT22961 Remarks 180°F (82°C) AT22963 Remarks 194°F (90°C)

    JD 820 (3 cyl) stalled and dead battery

    Hey everyone, I was able to start the 820 with a jump, but it stalled in the blackberries. It would not turn, or click, and I was unable to jump it again. The battery was showing about 0.4 volts and needs to be replaced. Could this be as simple as a dead battery? What should I replace the...
