I was doing a 100 hour oil change on my 1025r and discovered my air cleaner bracket bracket ( part # LVU28618 ) also had broken at the base. It seemed to be an extraordinary situation as there wasn't an impact, excessive vibration or any other situation occur that would break, what I thought would be a capable part. I called the dealer and was surprised that there was an issue with that bracket and further they want to bring the tractor in, replace the bracket and look at the valve cover and the engine since there has been numerous issues with this bracket arising from (excessive?)vibration that affected other engine parts. I was told by the a service manager that they have had to replace entire motors on account of this issue! All this including transportation is being covered by the warranty. It may make sense to revisit this issue for some of you earlier guys who were rejected under the warranty as it appears to be a manufacturers defect that may either add clarity to subsequent repairs or serve as a FYI of issues downstream.
Here's a previous thread with some early discoveries of this issue: https://www.greentractortalk.com/for...r-bracket.html
