    Looking quickly at Messicks parts I found this safety switch which does not say what it is for but looks the same as your broken one. Dave

    L3901 died instantly an and now giving error coded E-20

    This style of switch is more likely related to a clutch pedal, pto selector......... seat switches are not under the tractor. When I have a bit more time I will try and dig thru the WSM. Are there any colors and stripes on the two wires? You need to be under the tractor while someone in the...

    L3901 died instantly an and now giving error coded E-20

    I have had bad experiences doing what you did crushing brush piles. Inevitably sticks pop up and may have dislodge an electrical connector. Get under your machine with a good flashlight and start looking up for broken or dislodged wiring, Dave

    L1500DT Loader Question

    I had saved this info from an old post regarding hydraulics on old generation L series. I no longer recall who the poster was. Perhaps it has info that might help. It is part #64. Early L hydraulic block cover Now is where I brag about Ronnie Bowman at Tractorsmart.com - a VERY helpful guy...

    L175, L185 rewire

    For my money you will do better with a volt meter rather than an amp meter. Now you do not have high current flowing thru a meter. For modern vehicles with warning lights instead of gauges, the idiot light is really a voltage signal. Dave

    3 point hydraulic issue

    Start by looking for the feed back linkage which will be connected to one on the upper 3 pt lift arms. Usually on the right side. The link's purpose is to unload the hydraulics feeding the 3 pt piston once the 3 pt hitch has reached the desired level in order to relief the work the hydraulic...

    Older B6000 namely I think 73-77

    The charging system is a DYNAMO. It produces alternating current which it outputs through two blue wires. The alternating current is rectified to DC to charge the battery. Any excess output from the dynamo is dumped as heat by the fins on the rectifier. There is no feedback to the dynamo to...

    GR2120 Front Axle Pivot Adjustment?

    I believe the pivot adjustment's purpose is to keep the front axle vertical and prevent it from rocking back and forth. I do not mean rocking side to side but along the axis to the tractor from front to rear. The axle pivots to keep all 4 wheels in contact with the ground and if the ground is...

    ZD21 isn’t getting gas to injectors

    Do you have the manual? Since you opened the fuel system and now it is not starting it sure sounds like there is a bleeding procedure you did not follow. Do not start taking things apart as you will turn a simple problem into a major one. Dave p.s.

    Help. LA723 loader cable adjustment???

    This is a generic reply. You decide if it fits. Most joysticks operating cables have a lock to prevent inadvertent joystick movement especially when driving on the road. Engage the lock. Disconnect the cables from the spool valves. Now the valve spools should be in line and in their neutral...
