    Oil & Fuel Oil coming from valve cover breather

    What about synthetic, I dont like it because once you use it, you cant go back to regular as the engine becomes accustomed to it, much like regular versus high octane for gas.

    Oil & Fuel  Oil coming from valve cover breather

    I finished putting on my backhoe on my John Deere 790 and fixing or replacing the hydraulic hoses that were leaking, and when I cranked it up to test, all of a sudden a rush of oil came out of the hose from the valve cover breather. I always had it vent out and drip a little but never stream out...

    Bent my John Deere 7 Backhoe hydraulic cylinder.

    I had my brother in law and he couldnt understand how the rail system hooked up underneath the tractor, and it went sideways and I think that is when the hydraulic cylinder got crushed.

    How much will that tractor cost, the true price of ownership.

    Finding out what was brought in by just that tractor can be a bit tricky, take for example my case, I have a JD and a Kubota, so which one did I use more and how do I track that and how much did it benefit me....not so simple..

    How much will that tractor cost, the true price of ownership.

    Thats why you get a tractor like the John Deere, or similar that hold their value, with low depreciation and good residual value. In this case a 3025D with a FEL with 10 years/1000 hrs will sell for much more than $10,000, so you get greater value for your money than lets say a comparable Bad...

    Why would an L3901 feel weaker than a 2003 L3301?

    Very true, the new tractors seem to need the Kubota branded products more so than before, I think its by design but no one can prove it.

    How often should you grease a tractor for light duty?

    Thats why I still have it, the backhoe is tight and the tractor itself has no issues, but the FEL has been a constant issue and even greasing it every 10 hrs would not have done much as the design for the joints was not very good. It just had a straight bar for the pivot pins at all the points...

    How do you find the correct part numbers for tractors?

    I went to check a part and found out that for the FEL LA525 there are different parts for the pivot pins depending on location. That seems a bit much as all the pivot points are basically the same but the upper bucket pivot pin has a grove in the middle while the other pins appear either not...

    How often should you grease a tractor for light duty?

    I never greased my old tractor except when I changed the oil which I think I did several times in twenty years, so I was shocked when I saw in a video that you need to grease every 10 hours of use. What is a more normal level for greasing a tractor under light conditions or usage?
