    JD 4210 4x4 stuck on.

    The tractor defaults back to 4wd when the 4wd solenoid doesn't work. It's letter "M" on the schematic. I believe all the solenoids in that stack have the same part # so you might be able to swap them out to rule out it is definitely the solenoid.

    Grand jury indictment for shop removing diesel truck emissions devices.

    Back in the 90's diesel sulfur was as at 500ppm. Through refining they were able to get content down to 15ppm. That was as far as current technology could get us. After that, Engineers had to completely redesign the diesel engine. A lot of good came out of it but fuel economy wasn't one of...

    JD 3032E

    A better compare and contrast is going to be what chores you are using your 1050 for currently. Loader work the 3032e will run circles around a 1050. Hydro, SCV, greater lift capacity and higher hydraulic flow will make a world of difference. If you are using it for things like bush hogging...

    4400 john deere starting problems

    Wasn't the battery posts it was the terminals that go to the posts. My positive lead had about 3/4 of the copper strands broken. It was still able to carry low amperage to the accessories but as soon as you tried to crank the starter it couldn't handle the amperage. Honestly I thought this...

    4400 john deere starting problems

    My 4400 had a similar issue years ago. Accessories would work, Try to start it would click a couple time and then all electrical and then come back after a few minutes. My situation actually ended being the battery posts. I cleaned the grounding point and then put new battery posts on and it...

    Wildland fire fighting equipment

    This is a situation where the best offense is a good defense. In that I mean if you want to save a structure is to prevent minimize combustables around your home. These dried out evergreen trees, shrubs, bark mulch, or especially pine straw are great fuels for a fire to take off...

    Does HST Transmission Rob Horsepower??

    Personally I would look for a good 10 series ford mainly because of their simplicity. 70 ac of brush mowing is going to offer a lot of opportunities for things to go wrong. With these newer tractors all it takes is one stick to catch a wire and all the sudden you have an engine shutdown because...

    What third valve kit do I need John Deere 4700

    I put a WR long Diverter on my 420 loader and one set of rear remote on my JD 4310. The diverter kit is for the grapple honestly is a better option for a grapple. It just is push button control and your hand never has to leave the loader joystick. WR long kit is great comes with all the...

    Drum mower for hay and all purpose? 3/4 remotes and TnT?

    Definitely recommend the hydraulic lift. You never be able to put it in the upright position otherwise. It's actually probably a better transport way then the transport position because then it sticks out so far out the back it will make the front light without a FEL unless you are using a...

    Drum mower for hay and all purpose? 3/4 remotes and TnT?

    Drum mowers ride along the ground on a disc/stump jumper. You can can raise the height through spacers but still cuts way closer then a hay bine or disc bine. With spacers you probably can get a 3-3 1/2 inch cut. Without spacers you are probably looking at 2". With 2 rear remotes already...

    Does engine HP affect driving power

    Years ago tractors used to list drawbar power which essentially gave a rating at how well the tractor could maintain momentum under load. Hydro tractors are incredibly easy to use and for loader or work that has constant F/R or finesse work they win hands down. Plus the ease of use is well...

    Drum mower for hay and all purpose? 3/4 remotes and TnT?

    I have a Tar River 165 drum mower that I use for hay and for that purpose it is incredible (only downside is it cuts very short) but it is fast and never clogs. For pasture management it would not be a good fit because it cuts too short and for brush management the breakaway would constantly...

    John Deere 950 Tractor Yanmar 3T90J rebuild.

    Just out of curiosity did you do a compression test and what was the PSI you got out of each cylinder?

    Can not replacing valve stem seals create bigger problems down the road.

    Texasmark I agree. Once the tractor is warm and everything starts expanding it goes away. It's only on cold starts and much more noticeable in temps below 30. I figured if I was going to dive into it eventually I'd have the valves lapped and other things since I'd have the head off. But the...

    Can not replacing valve stem seals create bigger problems down the road.

    It's going to be a little bit before I can get to it but I will post results when done. A bench injector tester can be found on amazon or ebay and are not terribly expensive. Basically all it is a reservoir for fuel, a pressure gauge and a hand pump. You hook the injector up and keep...
