Looks like a good start to having it mobile again. My former neighbor purchased a 2020 brand new back in 1966 (iirc). That's the newest tractor he has. He's 91, still farms and other than plowing and baling, uses one of his many model B's for other farm work.

I rebuilt the hydraulic cylinders and the loader is all painted and ready to go on but I want to change the hydraulic oil first. When I got it home I drained the transmission and rear end and there was water in it. I filtered the oil and dumped it back in and flushed everything out. Now its time for some new stuff.

There was lots of water in the hydraulic system, I pulled the filter tonight, it was half covered in ice.

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?

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.

When I got it home I drained gallons of water out. It sat for years outside so I drained it right away. Once the oil started coming out I captured that in a bucket and put it back in to try and flush any more water out. Then I let it sit for months and let the water settle down to see how much I got, I bet I had a gallon more of water.

The other day I drained my other tractor that had good clean oil in it, I put that in the JD to flush out whatever else is left and then ill put new in both tractors.

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.

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.

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.

The hydraulic system is always going to end up getting moisture in it through condensation. I flushed it out pretty good.

Glad to see it running. Is it rough because its cold or still needs a little TLC?

Keep up the good work.

Most diesels are hard starting, sure are nice when they warm up. Fuel additive is good for cold weather. Nice machine.
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.

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 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.

It is a beautiful sound to here a diesel engine come to life. To me anyway!
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.
