    Help removing front gear case

    True. That, a soft face mallet, or a block of wood in under the hammer all work well

    Help removing front gear case

    That's always a good sign. So, for future reference, it took just removing the bottom snap ring and a hammer to remove?

    Help removing front gear case

    Ok, that is different than I thought. There potentially is a snap ring higher up that is holding it together. I would say to take the case off first, it will make everything much easier. Also, on the WSM, it takes a couple of weeks to get a Kubota hard copy, but to could buy an online one for...

    Help removing front gear case

    Ok, in that case the snap rings should be what is holding it on. As rScotty said, pulling the 4 bolts will give you a better view and better access to everything.

    JD 4210 PTO not working

    Being an electric switch, I would start by checking the switch to make sure that it is working, and that power is going where it needs to go. Being as it is a $40 switch, if you are uncomfortable testing electrical controls, I would say try swapping it out and see if that fixes the issue. Also...

    Help removing front gear case

    Can you post a picture of the underside of the case?

    Help removing front gear case

    It is easier if you remove the entire final drive from the axle where it bolts together. Check underneath of the gear case, below the lower bevel gear. There may be a cap covering another snap ring underneath of the bevel gear.

    R1 or R4...probably kicking a hornet's nest

    Yeah, that .02 inch change is not going to be noticeable at all. RC changes of an inch or more is where the change becomes noticeable. It looks like Kubota offers a 12-16.5 factory R4 option, so you should be able to procure the rims you would need pretty easily.

    Turf Tire Pressure

    This, but I wouldn't go below 10 in the rears. I run between 5-8psi in mine, but they are each rated for more than the tractor weighs. A radial tire has to be aired down to a level that lets it flex and bulge out on the sides, otherwise one of the radial advantages is wasted. Keep in mind that...

    R1 or R4...probably kicking a hornet's nest

    Could you run R4s on the front and R1s on the back, provided that the rolling circumference is the same? You might have to purchase different rims, but this would get you both the traction and lift capacity that you want.

    Aftermarket Loaders like Westendorf vs brand matched?

    You're easily going to get the best price on buying a tractor with a loader already attached. Between the loader cost, brackets, install and anything else, the overall price adds up fast. As far as adding a loader, aftermarket should be cheaper, but might not hold its value as well as factory...

    New Holland snow thrower 74csr value

    Right, my bad. Based on Tractorhouse, $3000 seems to be about its market value from what I can tell. Similar ones with hyd chute rotation were listed in the same price range. As far as the hydraulics go, an open center valve plumbed should do what you need. Yeah some manufacturers can be...
