I have had my 2040 one week. Just got the technical manual in yesterday.
A few questions.
1 The alternator on this 2040 is not hooked up at all. Could I switch to a one wire alternator to simplify things, or is changing from the original wiring a mistake.
2 I track down the loose steering to the steering arm and/or steering shaft(yoke). Where is a good place to buy these?
3 Should I stick with the original hydraulic fluid , or is there a more modern hydraulic fluid you would recommend?
4 Engine oil? John Deere only, or does any 30 weight work.
I worked on the tractor about 16 hours so far. Replaced all the dash wiring(a mouse had a field day), and cleaned layers of muck.
Still need to fix the steering, alternator, and maybe a little bit of stuff at the bell crank.
