The John Deere dealer wanted $148 for a new one, I found out you can clean them out. I cleaned it in the parts washer and blew it out from the inside out.I'm going to take a wild guess and say you will be getting a new filter?
Or is that one that can be weashed and reused?
How do you plan on cleaning the hyd. system?
oh yeah, this JD kinda bugs me like that. It obviously wasnt properly cared for and when I first got it home I drained gallons of water out of the transmission. The people who had it were trying to get it started. So basically they were circulating a 1:3 mix of hydraulic oil and water all through the hydraulic system.Sounds like you got a pretty good handle on it but do you ever get that feeling that there just might be a little more?
Not enough to hurt anything, just enough to bug you from time to time.
The hydraulic system is always going to end up getting moisture in it through condensation. I flushed it out pretty good.Well I guess 1:3 (water/Hyd) is better then 3:1.
Do you think just putting clean hyd back in will take care or stopping any rust or further damage or is there a hyd system cleaner for that. I neve had to go this far so I don't know.
My IH 484 doesnt have glow plugs. That doesnt like the cold. The JD 2010 has glow plugs and a little hand pump on the dash that will spray a mist of diesel fuel into the intake manifold.Most diesels are hard starting, sure are nice when they warm up. Fuel additive is good for cold weather. Nice machine.
My Case doesn't have glow plugs either, it does have a good battery and a strong starter that overcomes most cold starts. I try to avoid starting fluid, but sometimes I have no choice. It has to be pretty cold for that.My IH 484 doesnt have glow plugs. That doesnt like the cold.

My 484 is a either start, it has a little gizmo that you mount a can on and when you hit the button is shoots it down a tube to a nozzle in the intake manifold. I dont use it though. I did put a block heater on it. I need a better battery too, that 3cyl take a lot of juice to crank up.My Case doesn't have glow plugs either, it does have a good battery and a strong starter that overcomes most cold starts.

I let the 2010 run for a while, I was working on a mazda me and a friend got at a auction to try and make some money on. I didn't want to shut it off.It is a beautiful sound to here a diesel engine come to life. To me anyway!
