    Help! L3240 won't start when cold

    Bferris01, To test the temperature sensor you'll need to know the exact coolant temperature and resistance value of the sensor. It is best if you can do this at two known temperatures. Since you're unlikely to have the exact temperatures referenced in the WSM, I've calculated the equation...

    Mowing Travel Speed: What range is everyone using?

    About a year ago, I purchased a used B3030 Cab tractor with 72" mid mower, FEL and front snowblower for my 77 year old Dad to replace his BX2200. The B3030 has 3 speed ranges while the BX2200 only had 2. According to the published travel speeds, High range on the BX2200 is very close to the...

    Tie-Rods: Poor Quality

    Noticed a good bit of play in the front right tire/wheel when going down the road and confirmed the tie-rod was bad by lifting the tire off the ground and moving the tire left and right. Ordered a new Tie-Rod for a bit over $110 with tax, so it must be some super deluxe part that will last into...

    Reference: Hydraulic Coupler HNV38NP Kubota PN: 7J417-66320 Two couplers have developed a leak after putting the FEL back on after sitting for the winter while the front snowblower was on. I believe the o-ring visible inside the coupler is the root cause. Does anyone know the o-ring size or...

    B2650 Alternator Output for LED Lights?

    You might be drawing less than the rated watts suggest. I went through the trouble of measuring the current draw on a variety of the smaller LED lights (18, 27 and 36 watt units). The 18 watts either come in a 1x6 LED arrangement (row x # of LEDs) or 2x3 Led like you have. Both styles consumed...

    Adding aux lights

    CMV, After measuring 3 different styles of LED work lamps, I found the rated watts to be overstated. If you disconnected your headlights, you'll have plenty of current to work with. I've bypassed the headlights in several applications without altering the wiring by using an equivalent plug...

    Canopy LED light replacement for cab M7040 of other

    I bought the same LED for the dome and was wondering how you mounted the LED inside the housing? There isn't a flat spot to mount using the 2-Sided tape. Did you just lay it inside the dome cover? Perhaps the photos will help describe the situation. Sorry for the flipped picture below.

    Snowblower Wings Homemade

    Moving the 72" front mounted snowblower from the L3130 to the L4740 cab was easy enough, but unhappy how the blower barely covers the rear tracks of the R4's. Looked at purchasing wings from Kubota, but unfortunately the wings only add an additional 5" of overall width (2.5" per side) at a cost...

    Backhoe BH90 on L3940-3. Why not?

    I'm considering upgrading my tractor to a cab tractor, but hate to get rid of the BH90 backhoe I already have. According to what I have found using the Wholegoods documents from the last few years, only the BH92 is compatible with L3x40 cabs. While the BH90 will fit non- cab GL 40's, there...
