    2320 hydraulic pipe nightmare

    Snagged a root with the hydraulic line (part #LVA802862) coming of the outside of my filter. It pulled out of its bracket and into my u-joint which promptly wore a hole into it. Got the replacement pipe in from my local dealer and started digging into the tractor to remove offending part but I think the green engineers designed the whole tractor around this one pipe. So far Iíve taken out the seat and the plate directly underneath it, loosening the bracket that holds the scv and lever ( because the pipe terminated directly below it). So the pipe is disconnected but it wonít snake out of there. Off comes the left rear wheel - no luck, off with the right rear wheel, negative, taking off the floor board which means also the brake pedals, lower and upper dash boards. Now the right rear fender which means the Rops has got to go in the morning. When does it end? Wish I had just had a flexible hose made up on day one and just cut that pipe out. Wish John Deere made a repair manual available to customers. Any insights would be very much appreciated. PS This is a field repair. Wish it werenít so but too late. Learning the hard way on my first tractor. lol

    John Deere does make a technical manual for your machine, it's TM2388. You can look JD Techpubs or at other places like Green Farm Parts.

    I was not able to find anything specific in the tech manual for that specific line replacement. To remove the pump its attached to, the right fender, seat, floor boards all have to be removed. The same schematic posted is also listed in the file but thats all there is. sorry.

    Hey, Thanks for looking. Got the fender and floor board off and the pipe would still not snake out. Decided enough is enough and and just cut both banjo ends off. Got a flexible hose being made up with the banjos from the original pipe and rerouting over the top and away from the drive shaft. This is my first attempt at mechanics other than doing the 50 hour service. Hope I can get it all back together. lol.

    I did notice little white paint dashes next to multiple bolts as I was disassembling this thing. Do those indicate something like maybe loctite was used. Maybe some markings left by previous mechanic or factory? I could write a book on what I don’t know about tractors. lol. Will try to post photo. Put the wrong one up on this reply and don’t know how to take it down. Thanks again for looking. What a mess for one little piece of twisted pipe.

    Thanks, I knew they had a tech manual but I think the full blown repair manual is only available to dealers. If so it would seem they really want our business in a not so good way. Thanks for the info anyways. Will probably have to buy one soon as it seems to be a necessary item. Saving my pennies.

    The white paint are torque marks from the factor showing they have been checked. Good luck with the reassembly. Iím sure you learned a few things along the way abs perhaps a few choice words.

    Iím saving the choice words for reassembly. I have learned that I have no fondness in my heart for certain JD engineers. lol I actually bought this tractor from one. He was a nice guy, I think. So far Iíve ridden it for 40 hours and worked on about the same. Going into negative pleasure to work ratio tomorrow. Trying to look at it as an educational moment. Looks like it has been blowing hydraulic fluid on the right side. Hoping a little tightening down on the banjo bolts will remedy this. Donít have torque specs. Heck didnít even know what a torque wrench was until a week ago. lol. Yup, learning a lot the hard way. Got to admit itís a little fun and challenging too. Respect for true mechanics from a former college ceramics Professor. Still slinging mud, just off tractor tires now.

    I'm pretty sure its the same manuals that the dealers use, but I could be wrong. The ones I have are pretty extensive.

    Since you have it tore down, you might as well get some grease to the drive shaft U joints. That might save you some grief later. This sucks to have to do this in the field but keep grinding it will work out.
