    That's the best input you can get!
    This is a known issue by JD, if you dealer doesn't know about it then they can find out with these numbers, if they are unwilling, go to a different dealer or go up the food chain. You should be reimbursed for any expenses too IMHO.

    If they refuse to repair/replace engine under warranty tell them you will take legal action against them!

    I don't recommend doing that at all. Just give them the numbers, it will be taken care of.

    If they balk, I wouldn't get all nasty. Sometimes that has the opposite results of what you want done. In that case, I would start pushing the problem up the food chain ladder at Deere. This is known problem with the valve cover. So much so they changed how the air cleaner is mounted on new models. Sooner or later you will hit the right person at Deere.

    Just to be clear, did your tractor go to the dealership with the hole in the engine like shown in the photo you posted and they replaced the damaged components and returned the machine to you?

    Or is the picture you posted of the current condition of the machine?

    I sure hope the dealer didn't replace the damaged pieces shown in the photo and return the tractor to you. Such a failure would always at a minimum, require a disassembly of the upper engine to remove metal fragments and inspect for the damage which the failure caused. Usually, once metal fragments have fallen inside an engine, its a very bad thing. If the engine ran at all with the hole in the top of the valve cover and intake plate area from the picture you posted, damage was likely happening every second the engine ran. Fatal damage......as now confirmed.

    Very simple issue here. The engine was damaged by the air cleaner bracket mount failing. This is a known issue. It's not real common, but it happens. I think your case is the 3rd or 4th which has been reported 1st hand here on GTT by the actual tractor owner, which led to catastrophic failure and will require engine replacement. Once the top of the engine is exposed to the metal fragments from this failure, it's all over for the engine. Don't fret about oil samples and other details, they don't matter now.

    Deere is responsible, there is a lot of documentation on this matter. They should order a new engine assembly and remove the damaged engine and install the new one. The existing engine can not and should not be "rebuilt" by the dealer. Not only is it not a cost effective way to solve the problems, its also not the correct way to deal with an engine which has ingested metal fragments. New Yanmar engine assembly, John Deere part number MIA12147, is what your machine needs. (retail price $7,993.39 from Green Parts, other sources have other prices listed)

    It shouldn't require any nastiness or threats from you to anyone. If the dealer won't deal with it, write an email letter to John Deere customer service department and include the photo you put on this thread, the number of hours on the machine, the VIN number from the VIN tag on the front right frame rail (behind front right tire). Provide your contact information and ask for an immediate response. I will bet that you get one.

    If your dealer is not willing to deal with this, find a dealer who will. Each area is assigned a John Deere Service Specialist (they call the positions something else, but I can't recall the title). These are John Deere corporate employees who are assigned to work with difficult customer service issues related to repairs and warranty issues. They work with the dealership service manager, the customer and they see the issues are properly resolved. This should be nothing more than a formality of the company official approving the repair, the dealer ordering the parts and seeing the machine is repaired and returned to you.

    The new engine will have a warranty on it since it is a new assembly, so you will have that benefit going forward. In the end, you shouldn't spend a dime and you should end up with a good running tractor. I would expect the entire matter to be resolved within 30 days and your tractor returned to you.

    Many people "find" GTT when they are having a problem with their tractor or not sure how to handle something related to the operation or maintenance of their tractor. Now that you have found GTT, you have found a wealth of information about your tractor and frankly, many, many things related to John Deere. Now that you have joined GTT, I would encourage you to regularly spend some time and learn about your tractor and it's service needs and issues. It will help you much more in the future to understand the real needs of your tractor and the proper way to service it.

    We might not turn you into a mechanic, but we will definitely help you understand more about your machine. You will find new ways to use it that you never imagined. You will learn about ways to prevent issues (such as this one) before they become a problem. Also, you will develop a bond with your tractor and also meet a bunch of really good people who have vast knowledge about these machines as well in many areas of life. So, make sure to stick around here on GTT and really learn about your machine and develop some new friends.

    Please make sure to keep us posted on the progress with your machine and let us know what happens. Hopefully, the dealer steps right up and handles this issue for you. If not, we can coach you on how to handle this issue in other ways.

    Under no circumstances allow the "Your tractor is out of warranty" issue to be the excuse as to why this problem isn't handled for you by John Deere. Deere corporate is well aware of the issue with the air cleaner assembly posing a risk to the valve cover mount. Don't let anyone attempt to convince you your situation is any different. That's why Deere re-engineered the system and moved the entire air cleaner assembly off the tractor engine valve cover and mounted it on the core support bracket. When failures do occur, Deere has replaced the engines at their expense.

    You should end up with a new engine in the tractor and no out of pocket costs to you. Frankly, I would expect the expense you incurred to replace the air cleaner assembly as well as any expenses to repair the damage from the picture you posted should also be reimbursed to you as this is all part of the same issue.

    Please keep us posted on this matter and how its going. Understand, we are also tractor owners and we are NOT speaking for John Deere. We are members of a website which is probably the most complete source of individual tractor use, operation and service issues and other aspects of owning a wide range of John Deere products. Not only would we like to know, we want to see that you are properly taken care of and this headache put behind you.

    The only thing I would like to comment on from @SulleyBear 's post is, typically a part that's covered under warranty will usually only be granted until the end of the original warranty period.

    ie: If you had a 5 year warranty and a part failed at 4 1/2 years that was replaced, they will typically only warranty that part for the remaining 6 months. Its usually considered a 'customer satisfaction' claim the company grants you when replacing an item once your warranty has expired. (and in this case, definitely warranted)

    If the part is changed for a failure when it was actually out of warranty, the time allotted for the new warranty is usually only 30 days.

    The scenario is whats typical in the auto industry so might not be the same for JD, but I cant imagine they go above and beyond whats considered industry standard. Regardless, I'd definitely want whatever warranty they give you on the new engine in writing.

    But....yea, a brand new engine should serve you a lifetime of pleasure, provided you keep up with the maintenance.

    The program from John Deere came out April 29, 2019 to replace the air cleaner and engine if damaged 18LV188, see your dealer.
