    New CK2610 : rough running/clanging engine, cold and hot

    It's right behind the starter about 2 inches, red/white 12 gauge wire. You don't even have to open the hood. Mine melted at the heater connection itself on the intake, 6 mm stud, 10 mm wrench you can't miss it.

Excellent clearing house of current conspiracy theories and some just could be true. SHHHHhhhh don't tell your family or friends you looked through any of...

    New CK2610 : rough running/clanging engine, cold and hot

    Make sure the induction pre-heater is working (at the intake manifold entry). Makes a huge difference at cooler temps. Throw an amp clamp around the wire they draw 30 plus amps when they are working correctly. I disconnect mine in Summer by removing the fuse. You'll know it's right if the...

    L cab seat suspension options

    A quick fix or try would be to add a rubber jounce bumper from a car suspension. There are many varieties if you could get your hands on a few from an auto parts place or if you have a go to shop that does suspension work you could at least look around to find one to try. Cheap fix and easily...

    L3560 First Service

    More bolts never tightened. Block heater install is easy once you remove the exhaust pipe for excellent access. Used a 8 inch lone 3/4" threaded pipe to seat the block heater collar where the frost plug was. Installed the correct length bolts for the loader frame so they bottom on the frame...

    L3560 First Service

    Not mine, I agreed to do the first service on this L3560 with 135 hours. Obviously never touched, it doesn't look like the loader has even been greased. Loose bolts everywhere actually some falling out. Makes me angry to see poor dealer prep on a machine like this. Alternator belt loose...

    http://www.pentosin.net/specsheets/Pento_High_Performance_II_5W-40.pdf I buy this in 55 gal. drums for my business, it's great oil. Interesting you speak VW oil specs, 505.01 isn't allowed in their DPF equipped Diesels in lieu of 504/507 but if you notice this oil has the Mercedes Benz 229.51...

    I Still Hate My Tractor II

    Kubota Engine Dealer for New or Remanufactured Engines & Engine Parts I called one Kubota engine supplier in New Jersey they never returned my call. I've been Googling far too many hours trying to find info and these guys are on Ebay so I figured one call wouldn't hurt. Scott there knew exactly...

    I Still Hate My Tractor II

    Kit came today, all pistons, Bearings, seals to rebuild this thing. Turbo pistons have a different top and the upper ring land is steel or hardened whatever. Looks like the turbo goes back on this lemon. I had no idea one can purchase the whole kit quite a stretch cheaper then buying just...
