Re: Owners manual for JD 830?
Got all the hoods off today, new fuel filter and hydraulic filter installed. Hydraulic fluid drained (discovered there are two drain plugs). Got coolant drained out of radiator, drain **** was not froze up to my surprise but having troubles with the fuel drain ****. No rust and even after several applications of frozen nut spray and WD 40 over several hours, it will not budge. Turning counter clockwise like the radiator drain. I may just siphon out the remaining diesel and add fresh fuel with strong Sea Foam injector additive and see what happens.
I found the nut to loosen by the filter when I put it in and have it open. When I add the fuel will crank the engine till see fuel squirting out of the nut, tighten and then continue cranking till it fires. Not to exceed 20 seconds at a time to prevent starter damage.
Got the front wheel spindles greased and all steering connections in the front (total of six) Rear axle at the outer hub greased....20 pumps but not seeing grease oozing out of seal so guess it is doing that inside the hollow axle?
Could not find the bell housing grease fitting. Is this directly under where the batteries are? I am currently trickle charging both batteries at home, found and removed the 3 bulbs for warning lights, one was broke at base, the other had fallen out of the holder and laying at bottom. RPM cable I disconnected from gauge but it appears not broke. it will not turn with my fingers. However when i spin the end coming out of the gauge, the rpm needle moves so not sure what is going on here. Removed the front bucket cylinder to take to shop for resealing.
I was very dirty when I got home but got a lot done, only skinned one knuckle when removing 2nd Hydraulic drain plug.
