    Third Function install ?

    Pretty simple to do yourself, with basic tools and some sense. There are a few threads showing what to do on B and LX. Not sure about the BX.

    changing fittings on third function, straight to 90°

    Here is the summit parts list. They are 1/2” couplers. Could be pipe or JIC threads, I can’t remember.

    changing fittings on third function, straight to 90°

    On my 2610 with summit 3rd function, I used a few 90’s on the valve block as well. Mine were 3/8’s JIC.

    Wicked 55

    Used my grapple and 2610 a good bit yesterday burning brush. Was talking to the wife around the fire over a beer, how did I do this before?! You will love the grapple!

    What did you do to or on your Kubota today?

    Been working on my big pile for about 5 hrs. Have gotten all of the trees off the ground and some briar patches too.

    F3680 4wd Engagement advice please

    Yes, I agree with that. If front wheels are turning, while in 4wd, one or both rear wheels should be spinning.

    F3680 4wd Engagement advice please

    I don't believe that theory is correct. Part #10 moves a coupling in the housing onto a shaft in transmission, that spins with treddle movement. Shaft inside transmission is always spinning if mower is moving. The coupling takes that rotation and sends it down the drive shaft to rear wheels...

    F3680 4wd Engagement advice please

    Just happened to toss a 2690 on the lift. Maybe the linkage arm has popped out? That would be a very easy repair! This is 2wd This is 4wd. The lever doesn’t move much.

    What shoul my next attachments be?

    D2 is on the money. Being down there, that would greatly help in storm cleanup. My grapple is a QA. If you got a bucket mounted one, that would limit your length of log to pickup. A claw doesn’t do that.

    F3680 4wd Engagement advice please

    Our 2 3680’s and 2 2690’s are easy to shift, no real resistance other than maybe a detent type feel. I’m not 100% sure, but I don’t think there is a clutch pack, the breakdown looks like #10 moves a splined washer onto the shaft in transmission that is spinning with treddle input. Which makes...

    F3680 4wd Engagement advice please

    Ahh I misunderstood. I don’t think there is much linkage, I believe the lever goes straight into the transmission case. I can’t get a better picture, as I’ve since gotten this unit back together and out the door. Have you pulled up the breakdown on kubota site? Most of the pictures on there...

    F3680 4wd Engagement advice please

    The 4wd lever is on your left while sitting on machine. You can see it is the only lever on the far side in picture. The floor pan is easily removed with only a handful of bolts. After removing all pedals and roll bar.

    1st Post - Tilt Steering issue

    Had the exact same thing happen on mine and thought exactly what you did, I was hitting it. Asked dealer about it, never heard of anything like that... I ended up putting a double spring I found at work in there, seems to work well. You have to pull the dash up and remove a panel to access it...
