    JD horn kit BLV10359 installation

    Today I installed the JD horn kit BLV10359 on my 4066R with cab. I could not find it in the technical library, so maybe the admins might want to add it as it appears I am unable to do so myself.

    The hardest part was getting the knobs off the 4WD lever and the throttle lever. The 4WD lever is flat and the throttle lever is round, but both pull straight off. However, both are very difficult to pull off, especially the 4WD lever. There is nothing in the instructions regarding how to remove the knobs. I used a claw hammer to pull them off. The entire dash must be removed and there are several electrical connections to disconnect. None are duplicate, so you cannot reconnect incorrectly. There is plenty of length on these connections, so you can pull the dash out quite a ways to be able to remove the connections easily. Be careful around the horn connections after installation as they are live all the time, meaning the horn can be honked without the key turned on.

    1..Dash back before horn button installed..note the indentation where the hole is to be drilled. I did not have a 16mm bit, so used a 5/8 inch bit.

    Thanks Dave, I've copied those to the tech library. If you have a direct pdf of the instructions you can email them to me and I can add them in too.


    When I added the kit to my 3720 (not sure it's the same part number), I just lifted the dash cover up slightly to ensure clearance and never took the knobs or wheel off making for a faster install.

    I started installing this horn kit on my tractor today. After struggling with the 4WD lever I used a heat gun to warm it and it came off easy. When I went to install the rubber horn cover the metal ring is not threaded. Should it have threads to screw onto the switch or do you press it on? Seems way to tight to push on.

    I don't remember having any problem with the horn cover. I checked the installation instructions and it only says to install it, but not how. If there are no threads, then it would seem to be a "push on".

    Strike two. The new cover only has half the threads cut and they are cut at an angle. Hopefully the next one works
