Is the plastic hood extension that holds headlights on MT372, S373 and S470 available anywhere? It looks like part number is 1974 2528 000 and description is Holder, light. Are they being reproduced? They are kind of fragile so finding a good used one seems unlikely. But I'd guess that there are some used hoods floating around with that piece intact. I need a couple of them.

No one is producing a replacement to my knowledge.

are you looking for the front headlamp cover in the image around the healdlamps, the white plastic thing? If so, then there are places where you can send the part in, they 3D solid model in SolidWorks and then 3D print you new parts. I know, I replicated parts a whole bunch too for Yanmars.

Here's an example of a 3D printed tractor headlamp grill. The tractor own then just paints it the color they want.

If you are looking for the headlamp assemblies, they are made by Stanley Japan for motorcycles and ATVs for all of the Japan name brand tractors. Even your round ones.

Oh, if you want a slightly different look, the S372, MT372 has another variant, it's the Iseki TX1300. Same machine, just the grill and headlamp grill are slightly different. The machine is more blue and white vs. more white and blue.

Thank you. It looks like the Yanmar headlight grills are available from normal parts sources. One would think that a Mitsubishi parts source would have a batch of headlight grills made up.

I believe that the Iseki TX1300 is equivalent to Satoh S370. I have owned the domestic equivalent, the Bolens G154 which had a tag identifying it as TX1300 and also owned Satoh S370. But the two are not identical even though they share the engine. The MT372 has even more differences.

I wonder, if you can not find a match up, would a Yanmar headlamp grill and headlamp set be easily retro-fitted in your machine?

There are plenty of hot knife and tricks found on Youtube vids to understand how to go about this.

Or download FreeCAD, 3D model the MT372 headlamp grill and export the file in both STL and STP formats. Then a 3D print shop can make you a part. If you are well skilled in this, there are some considerations and knowledge to have a successful part. I've done this now for about 8 years already.



Your headlamp grill is less complicated than these,

Thank you for more detailed help. When winter weather has me avoiding other things, working on that might be good. But I am 78 years old with no experience in that stuff.

The only similarity between the Iseki TX1300 & Satoh S370 is that they both have a KE70 engine. Rest of the tractor has different parts.
