    Replacing wheel on gator after flat

    I made a bolt as you describe for the rear wheels on my JD 2030. It has 16-9-28 tires. I got a bolt that fit and made sure it was not threaded all the way. I wanted a smooth surface to slide the wheel. I cut off the head and used a grinder to add a taper, then a hacksaw to make a slot for...

    Buying Advice Considering an early 70's 830

    Yes, non-synchronized. I normally only use 8th to "road" the tractor. I never use 7th. 6th is the highest I use on my property, usually moving place to place. 4th is highest I use to brush hog. Range II does not get much use (at least for me) Diesel engines have a lot of torque, they can and...

    Buying Advice Considering an early 70's 830

    The transmission requires complete stop to shift gears (1-4) when in range I (2-8) when in Range II. Reverse only gives gears 1-4. You must stop also to shift ranges (I & II) or to reverse.

    Change shifter boots on 1970 820 3 cyl

    The ones on my JD 2030 screw on/off. I replaced them just to make the tractor look better.

    Are special tools needed to replace a clutch on a compact tractor?

    I am not familiar with your tractor. Does it have a wet or dry clutch? If a dry clutch, you will need a line up tool, but I have successfully "eye balled" the alignment.

    Deere 62c deck anti-blowout kit... what's it for and should I get it?

    I added the JD kit to my 62C deck. Works, but I am not using Gator blades. I also felt the kit would reinforce the leading edge of the deck.

    Fuel Line Protection

    There are spots on the fuel lines of my JD 6415 that have the split loom for protection against abrasion. You buy for a lot less than JD sells it for, and indifferent materials. I would pick whatever is the most wear resistant

    fuel leak.

    I had to replace all the hoses (fuel lines) on my JD 6415. They started to leak at the fittings where the clamps were. Not enough line to cut them shorter. I used Gates Baricade hose. It comes in both high, and low-pressure versions. High is for fuel injected cars/trucks. I used low.

    1972 john deere 820 open center

    I somehow kinked that same brake line on my JD 2030. Probably snagged or hit something. I ordered a new line from JD. It came prebent with flare nuts installed. Fit perfect.
