    Caught Fire!

    Mating season. Nest real estate must be at a premium to go under a hood. One of many ways to fix. Need a copy of "L3301, L3901, L4701 Workshop Manual." Free copy at Kubotabooks.com. Last section in WSM, Electrical, has wiring diagram for the L4701, with conductor color coding. Can use this to...

    Kubota BX2200 Unit Flasher

    Kubota does not sell individual connectors. But, that is an 8-pin connector used on Lexus and Toyota. Unique keying shown on your screenshots. One way would be to cut one off a salvaged vehicle. Another is to match up the automotive connector for ordering from an automotive connector supply.

    PTO grinding L3800

    Please, some questions for those who have split their machines. It looks that the transmission case is held by eight stud-washer-nut combinations. Splitting at this plane, does the bearing holder stay with the front of the tractor, and the transmission spacer stay with the back transmission...

    PTO grinding L3800

    saxon L3800 HST from your other thread. My take is that I would rent a tiller because of time. If you have to order parts to fix something it may take awhile and you could lose your window. Not being there, I don't know the cause of the noise and would be concerned about secondary damage from...

    L3800 runs then stalls

    saxon While waiting for Dave's reply, a quick word on L3800 air purge. Many posts on this forum about watching a Youtube video and wrenching fittings to purge air. You do not want to do that on an L3800. It will purge using the knob. Just follow the operator's manual and it will work exactly...

    Need a replacement battery

    The critical thing here is vibration and shock to the battery plates. A Kubota battery or a Deere TY21764A will be built with that in mind. The (brand deleted: I ain't married to none of 'em) ... So it does depend on how you use the machine.
