jd gator overheating

just started smoking from the top of the radiator, thought at first the water pump, or clogged radiator. To check the thermostat I removed thermostat and ran without it. No change. Flushed radiator, and checked to make sure fluid was moving through the water pump. Next noticed that the battery was dead also. Figured a short somewhere was affecting both the cooling system and battery. Contacted JD mechanic for advice. He thought maybe the relay was dead.(the fan to cool the radiator was not turning on.) Tried new relay with no avail. Now think it may be themperature sensor. Can these short out and do you suggest any more tests? Thanks a million.

My thought is that you may have a burned out temperature sensor on your radiator. You can find this by simply looking for a plug on the radiator that has a wire chassis connected to it. these things can burn out rather easy and it could have been effected by being hit by debris or other objects that could have caused the sensor to short out. Replace the temp sensor. Usually located near or at the bottom of the radiator. Hope this helps.

i need to rebuild a hydraulic cylinder on a john

i need to rebuild a hydraulic cylinder on a john deere 4300 with a 420 front end loader. the cylinder is for the bucket. how do i disassemble it

  1. This cylinder is not to hard to disassemble.
  2. Place upright in vise or suitable bracing.
  3. Using a block or dowel of wood(maybe rubber mallet also), depress the top cap of the cylinder to relieve tension on the ring.
  4. Use a small edged screw driver or pick and spin "retainer" in until the bent end comes to the opening.
  5. Lift up and rotate the ring more to allow the ring to pass over the edge of the opening.
  6. Once the retainer is started you can tap it with the wood and rubber mallet around the circumference of the cylinder to release the retainer from the groove.
  7. If you havent done so by now the oil should be drained.
  8. with the cylinder firm in vise(but not too firm to "distort the integrity of the cylinder.) Place the cylinder Sideways so you can pull out piston and rod assembly.*** Put hose or suitable drain on holes of cylinder***. With the motion of the piston the residual oil will tend to spray out.
  9. Pull on the piston and position it to bottom out on the top gland(cap) ie:full extension
  10. Place support under the rod to avoid damage. The gland is a tight tolerant fit with use of O-rings and backup rings. Too much offset can lead to damaging gland assembly, and jamming in the cylinder. You may be able to just hold with hand also depends on size, bore, stroke, pressure rating. Use due dilligence.
  11. Now that its out you have the piston assembly with gland in hand..**if only the rod comes out there are more steps to take, and you need a new rod but sometimes its more cost effective to buy a new cylinder. If there is a farm supplier or hydraulic dealer near they can certifiably /replace repair the cylinder for you. Hydraulic pressure is kind of like lightening. If it strikes you under pressure it can kill you.*** Using the dead blow or rubber mallet try to pop the gland out by using the piston/rod assembly as the puller. You may not have to remove the top clevice or other end of the cylinder, so maybe you could tap on that.
  12. The piston can be removed from the rod depending again on make. Usually a socket head cap screw or king nut holding it in place to the rod.
  13. When the piston is removed you should be able to slide gland off also.
  14. You'll need that pick and or the screwdriver to pick out the seals carefully. Let me know if you require more...WF Services

I have a brand new engine (model 4045TF150 serial

I have a brand new engine (model 4045TF150 serial PE4045T773636) and it has an overheating problem. In idle it does not overheat but, when placed into run it overheats (240Degrees) within 1 to 2 minutes. The anifreeze is full and is through out the engine.

John Deere Gator XUV 2008 oil in gas

John Deere Gator XUV 2008
I am having a problem with gas getting into my oil. It would blow out a big cloud of blue smoke,When i checked the oil level it was about a inch and a half over the full mark.



On another forum i was told one guy had his entire throttle body replaced because of a possible electrical problem with it.



Anybody else had this problem? Thanks

I know exactly the problem. I work for a John Deere dealership and have seen this problem before. It is called short-tripping. When a machine is first started, gas does leak into the cylinder and crankcase past the rings--normal--simulates leaving the choke on too long with a carburetor engine.. As the engine temperature rises, the gas in the oil is burned off and there really isn't a problem. When you take short trips or do not let the engine run to get it up to temperature, the gas in the crankcase does not get burned off and will accumulate over time. Make sure the machine is getting up to operating temperature and this could take up to 20 minutes if the ambient air temp is low. Feel free to e-mail at ericf@greensouth.com with further questions

Replacing traction drive belt for John Deere L118

Replacing traction drive belt for John Deere L118. Is this a do it yourself similar to mower deck belt? No instructions in operators manual for traction belt. Are there instructions on line rather than buying service manua?

Posted by on

Answer

  • Most Helpful of 1 Answers

Actually this is a fairly easy looking one to replace. If you go to John Deere parts and do a search for your tractor, in the parts listing it gives a pretty clear picture of the routing and configuration of the belt as it should go on, you might want to print it out to have nearby while you are working on it. You will need to remove the mowing deck to get at it and possibly some large blocks to elevate the tractor to give yourself room to work.
Look closely at the old belt if it is still on the tractor to get an idea what is involved BEFORE you start, comparing it with the picture. You will need to loosen and move or remove the belt guards and do be careful of the nylon fan on top of your transaxle

The PTO usually has a clutch that has to be engaged so that you can select the PTO rotation setting. I had a problem like that on my tractor and all it needed was a little adjustment on the PTO clutch lever, so it could disengage the PTO gearbox properly.
