Over in the SCUT section is a very long sticky about the problems with the 1025R air filter set up and what JD is doing about it for some owners. From what I have been able to gather the first 3K or so 2018 2025R tractors were built with the same air filter system and have been included in the program. I have one of those tractors I purchased new a year ago last June. When I found the strap holding the air filter housing to the valve cover mounted bracket broken and on the ground I started reading about the problems and the fixes. My dealer after giving him the solution number done some checking and agreed there was something that should cover my tractor and agreed to order the parts. He said I could do the install myself if I wanted to do so. Picked the parts up last Monday and installed the following day.
Just wondering if anyone else with the early Gen 2 2025R has done the relocation kit as well and what the dealer experience was like. Granted like mine or denied? Was a quite simple remove and replace procedure. Only glitch was a bracket that sticks out the right side of the front of the engine needed to be tweaked a bit to make room for the new filter housing. Looks like it might have supported the front of the old housing. Can see no other reason for it to be there. Could not get the dust discharge rubber thing ( looks like a duck beak ) to point straight down. Is still angled down but slightly forward ( say in a 5 o'clock position versus a 6 o'clock position. May just hacksaw a bit of the bracket away so I can turn that duck bill straight down. Thanks!
