    JD 5303 Tachometer Intermittent

    Over the past couple years I have noticed my tachometer would not register immediately sometimes. On occasion it would work immediately then at times it may take several minutes to begin working.

    1973 Ford 4000 Hydraulic Control Valve

    Have a Ford 4000 with one set of rear remotes that feed from under the seat to the back of tractor. The control handle seems to be frozen or stuck. Someone suggested hitting it hard to see if it would break free. Seems a little risky?? Is this a rebuildable part or if there is trouble is this...

    1973 Ford 4000 Voltage Regulator Issue

    We noticed recently that the battery light on the dash started coming on periodically. After doing some reading we came across a recommended test for the regulator.

    Telescoping Draft Links JD 5303

    The first pic is the fixed draft link like I have. The second pic is the telescoping draft links I would like to swap to. The third image is what I found price wise on the JD Parts site.

    Three Point Spreader -- Poly vs. Steel

    I am in the market for a three point spreader. I have read all of the older threads and think may still have a different question to interject into the decision. I have narrowed it down to one of the Cosmo units. Will either go with the metal P500 or the poly P400. We have an older metal...

    JD 5303 Clicking Noise

    My 2008 JD 5303 4wd with 522 FEL makes a “clicking” sound when the tractor has been run for several hours at 2000 - 2400 RPM. Reducing RPM makes noise stop. I have videos of the noise and normal operating sound, but don’t see an option to post videos. First started noticing a year ago after...

    3-Point Hitch JD 5303 3PT Hitch

    There have been many posts about issues with 3PT Hitch issues with the 5xx3 and 50x5E series tractors. I have a 2008 JD 5303 4WD unit. I don't think the 5303 was made in a 4WD model very long and believe it be almost identical to the 5065E. The only difference I have seen is that one is reported...

    Pallet Forks for JD 5303 with JD 522 FEL

    Considering adding a set of pallet forks to my collection of attachments. Early on I was convinced that the Frontier brand fixed 48" forks was what I needed.

    Noticed yesterday while running my JD MX6 cutter in thick grass that it quit cutting. Raised it up and it picked back up and would cut fine.
