1025r noticed missing hardware during oil change

I crawled under the tractor to remove the drain plug and saw this bolt missing a nut just to the rear of the oil pan. The opposite side bolt missing all together.

Anything special I should look out for or check after replacing? 98hrs on the machine now. 2019. Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately it’s a very common thing. Sad but these tractors should come with a bottle of lock-tight. Just because they put a marker to the bolt head doesn’t mean the torque gun was up to snuff or set correctly. And according to my tractor they don’t recertify.

About 6 years ago, I bought a new Mustang GT. When I got under it to do the first oil change, I found the lower bolt holding in the starter was hanging on by just a couple of threads. Lucky I caught it and lucky you caught yours as well. Now to get my brand new tractor up on ramps and take a peek. :)

Best,

Pride in one's work seems to be an ever diminishing resource in this country. It's sad.

Best,
You would think that being made by JD in the USA, they would assemble them properly with care and attention to detail?
Call the dealer. Had LOTS of problems like this with the 1025R lemon I had.
deleted....confused this with another thread.
