    L2201 water temp sensor

    Latet update, the sensor works fine. The small tempertures I used to see were due to the combination of cold weather and the lack of a thermostat. Now with outside temp from 20-26C when I use the bush hog it goes up to 100-105C.

    L2201DT hard start

    I have 10,5volts on the glows plugs. I also have taken them off to check them with 12 volts directly and they work fine. I ‘ll take off the starter to check and rebuild it if necessary. I looked to older posts and from the pictures and part numbers I can tell that my starter is different from...

    L2201DT hard start

    No difference on the starter. It turn it over fast. If I turn it off immidiately after it starts I have to repeat the procedure. If I actualy use the tractor 10-15 minutes and it gets warm, then I can restart it with no issues. About 2650 hours on the tractor.

    L2201DT hard start

    Hallo everybody, my tractor is usually difficult to start, especially if not used for a couple of days. Most of the times I have to repeat the preheating-cranking procedure 3-4 times. The battery is new, glow plugs checked and work fine, new fuel filter and I just had my injectors cleaned and...

    L2201 oil pan gasket replacement

    Hallo, has anyone replaced the oil pan gasket on an L2201 or L245? I need walkthrough on how to remove the oil pan. Is it doable without removing anything else? Thanks!

    L2201 water temp sensor

    Major update, there is no thermostat at all installed. Someone removed it with its housing and welded a pipe that goes to the radiator. I will order a new housing and a new thermostat and see how the sensor reacts.

    L2201 water temp sensor

    Update, I used some heat conductive grease but still the temp is 45-50 Celsius and 60-65 under load. The responsiveness though improved. A mechanic told me that it could be normal for old tractors like mine. I am not sure what to believe. I could try a new brass fitting that goes even deeper or...

    L2201 water temp sensor

    The gauge is analog so the sensor with its cable is preattached to the gauge. I already tested the sensor and works fine. The grease is a good idea though.

    L2201 water temp sensor

    Fluid level is fine. I believe there is a water pump but since the tractor is not overheating I can’t see why would it be the problem. My guess is that for some reason the sensor can’t pick the true temperature. So far without the gauge I never had issues.

    L2201 water temp sensor

    On a post for the l1501 which is the 2 cylinder version of mine 110 Celsius is mentioned as the normal operating temperature. Isn’t 45-50 Celsius a little bit low for an engine?

    L2201 water temp sensor

    Hallo everybody, tried to hook an analogue water temperature gauge on my L2201DT. Pretty easy job but the readings are 40-45 Celsius when idle and 60 degrees under pressure. I tested the sensor before installing it and works fine. I use 50-50 water with antifreeze so I would expect a normal...
