    Fuel Grommets

    Hi all, been a fan of reading the forums in many places for a long time and wanted to get your alls opinion

    I have a 520 and I believe it takes a B3317R fuel grommet, My 80 seems to use grommet R1385R. I can find both of these in black. I am thinking it would be nice to have them in red but it seems that is atypical. Does anyone know if they came in red? What are your thoughts on having them in red? I don't think I will be showing the tractor but want it to look nice and for some reason the red speaks to me.

    Thanks,
    Tractor Gary

    Hi, Gary. Welcome to GTT.

    Have you tried the red R39613 grommet ?? I would think it should fit.

    I think yellow would make a great contrast to the green hood.

    Forgive me, I just still don't get it.

    I see a ring on an older JD hood for sure. But what IS it? What is its purpose, or what does it do? Is there some description for it that would explain the above to us ill-informed?

    I would assume it is to prevent rattling between a metal tank and hood or to simply reduce friction between the two so they don't erode.
