    hydraulic fluid smell normal?

    When my tractor was new I used to sense that smell sometimes. I guess I’m so used to it now that I don’t notice it anymore. Remember when cylinders are extended fluid is removed from the sump. Air is sucked in. When cylinders are retracted fluid is returned to the sump. Air must therefore go...

    I always thought that holes were drilled in glass BEFORE IT WAS TEMPERED and if drilling was tried afterwards the glass would shatter. if so, this would increase time to manufacture something. I believe laminated safety glass can be drilled however, and may end up being a practical solution if...

    Cycling glow plugs?

    Mine are cycled by manually by me. So when cold the cycle time is longer...maybe 10 seconds if really cold... If no start, which is rare, I do another cycle with fuel now in the cylinders, and it starts right up. Both tractors. :)

    How to Test Tire Fill for Freeze?

    You could also drain enough to get a cheap antifreeze tester filled and actually read the point down to which you are protected. Simple and not expensive. $3 here at Autozone...

    Canopy angle

    Plus it then adds down pressure and increases traction when moving forward.

    Canopy angle

    I think common sense says angle the canopy down in the direction you likely will be moving most of the time...:)

    Glow Plug Location B7800

    You are wise to take care before trying to start the tractor. Maybe ten years ago I did not realize that the PCV tubing is the route by which crankcase oil can find its way into the cylinders, if a tractor is tipped over, due to valves being open. I tipped my B2910 on its side over ten years...

    How many hours on your BX2200?

    Bought mine at the same time. I THINK it has about 1800 hours on it. At least 1500 anyway. Have to take a look…

    Ominous noise in bx front end

    “DO NOT GO UNDER the tractor if you are depending solely on the loader to hold it up while your under there” is an even better policy to follow.

    Loader Broke the loader

    You have a couple weeks to figure this out before the dealer gets involved it sounds like. The more details you give the better the chances are that you will get help that is meaningful. For example, it’s not clear if the loader was on the tractor when you bent the lever which controls the...

    After rain B7800 will not run?

    This was suggested in his parallel thread over at OTT. Wonder if he will bother to check?

    Advice for 1980 Kubota L345

    No...worst case is the damage the tractor might do to the operator during such an event! :oops:

    What have you hit with your mower lately?

    Been more than 30 years and it was with a garden tractor mower. I mowed over a turtle I did not see...Still remember seeing eggs inside the lower half that remained...still feel bad about it to this day... Also mowed over a rabbets nest once. Fortunately the little ones were not injured....I...

    Liquid in tires

    You take the tire off, lay it on the ground, and fill it completely while it is laying on its side. This never occurred to me, but read a post here a while back where apparently this was done by someone who did not understand filling should not be 100 percent. If there is a will, there is a...

    Can all tractors flip over easy?

    I ran out of steam reading before the end of the first page of this thread. But from personal experience one time, I can assure everyone it is easier to tip your tractor on its side than you think. Back flip, not sure. Debate the theory as much as you like. But be careful. It can happen...

    What is this lifting ?? tongs for ??

    It was probably discarded when it did not work for anything useful...:D And you found it a few decades later...BUT holding a pot over a fire might be a possibility...LOL

    Kubota B2630 flipped on the left side

    Loader looks like it is pretty high. Adds to the tip over possibility. Sounds like the OP got lucky as far as possible engine damage goes. I did too, ten years or so ago. The issue with hydrolocking is more related to the PCV tubing, than leakage past piston rings, as I came to understand...

    The B7800 is essentially the same tractor as the B2910. The B7800 supplement is at the back of the WSM that covers the B2910. You can download it here:

    Timing Window

    How do you turn the engine on your b2710 by hand. Using the fan? Like to know as my B2910 should have the valve clearance checked, but this is a question I was unsure about...

    I was looking for a chain saw chain at Lowes a few years ago. The right one was there, but only one was left on the wall. Fortunately, I looked closely, and it was a used chain in the plastic holder...told a store employee. Remember a guy at work saying he put a new roof on his house, or...

    bx1500 fuel injection pump

    Thanks for reporting back. Glad to hear of your success. Could you share what taking the pump totally apart actually means? Asking because I know nothing about the internals of these pumps, but have read that timing is a serious consideration, and that they must be assembled properly, or...

    B7800 - intermittent power loss/low idle to stop

    I think you are right. Time to pull out the workshop manual and verify at my end!

    Can I temporarily run without a hydrostatic safety switch?

    My understanding is generally the safety switch is there to prevent unexpected movement of the tractor when it is started. Once started, the switch no longer serves that purpose. At least on my tractors. And if your switch only has two wires, probably works the same on yours too. My BX might not...

    Kubota BX1860 Will Not Start

    B7800 - intermittent power loss/low idle to stop

    I was going to ask how the OP determined his fuel filter was good. Years ago I had a different, but similar, issue on my B2910, which is the same tractor as the B7800 with some deluxe features.Turned out it was caused by the fuel filter. Changing the fuel filter is a good idea, unless perhaps...

    Kubota BX2200 starts then dies

    Just a small point, but one wire should be powered all the time, except when the key is turned to the off position. The other wire should only be powered when the key is turned to the start position. White would be the start wire, and red would be the run wire according to your voltage...

    Kubota BX2200 starts then dies

    Kubota BX2200 starts then dies

    My BX2200 did the exact same thing when the run coil of the 2-coil solenoid failed. Bought a replacement off eBay for 20 percent of Kubota cost roughly. Been working fine now for a couple years.

    When is a BX enough?

    I started with 3.5 acres and a B2910 with backhoe and loader. I never regretted buying a tractor larger than a BX, although my son-in-law bought a BX23S for use on 3.2 acres, and I think that was a good choice for him, because most of his property is steeper than mine. Over the years I’ve...

    kubota 2501 won't start

    Sounds like a safety interlock circuit issue. You essentially confirmed this when you jumpered from the starter main power lug, to the terminal that the safety interlock circuit connects to. You need to get a workshop manual, or at least a wiring/schematic diagram, to determine how many safety...

    FEL level indicator

    I don't remember if I posted to this thread or not. BUT every time I see a thread about bucket level indicators, I keep wondering what they actually do. I have the simple type indicator like the one member "repeat" provided the picture of. It tells me the relationship between the ground and...

    L2501HST VERY hard to shift from low-medium-high

    While I have never had an issue with changing gear ranges on my HST tractors, I did notice that if I change gear range when the larger tractor is moving SLOWLY, rather than being stopped, the transition is smooth and I have no need to come to a COMPLETE stop. Of course, I am saying SLOW...

    Making a pond questions, mainly keeping mosquitos from breeding

    WoW! Fifty feet in diameter an 12 feet deep? My spring fed pond is probably only 75 feet in diameter and maybe averages at best 4' deep. Lots of gold fish and other fish, and frogs too. Never worried about mosquitoes so they must not be an issue for us.

    Bx1800 fuel pump?

    Here is a link for an aftermarket one on ebay for 23.99 and free shipping. States for a BX1860 or BX2200. Hard for me to imagine that the 1800 and 2200 would use different pumps, but I guess it is possible. I would probably try one of these first. I got lucky with a fuel cut off solenoid for my...

    New Boom Needed for BX loader
