Ok guys, I have a 2032R with around 40 hours on it. Upon blowing it off after mowing the yard this afternoon I found a bolt/plug on the rear end left hand side. I have blown the tractor off every time I mowed and newer seen this before and I have pressure washed it once. The bolt and o ring both look brand new with no noticeable oil by the o ring. Can anyone tell me where this bolt/plug should go? Maybe it’s an extra I’ve been carrying around and just noticed it tonight. The oil level in the transmission is good and so is the engine oil. The bolt was lying behind the sensor in the pictures BECB8EF1-C66E-418B-A930-B759466EBF62.jpeg 2AFE532A-F14D-442C-81C4-DF4BA9FCCDDE.jpeg 6CBFEE47-E6C3-4C16-8553-70A8B17F8AAE.jpeg A1406D61-E05C-4074-BAD5-5DF6653404C0.jpeg

That can’t be good. It’s gotta go somewhere.

Do you know what the plug is for in the first photo?

Looks like a temporary manufacturing plug that is installed until tractor is assembled. But then again, if my theory is correct, why wouldn't a plastic plug be used? So, I really don't know what it is for, I'm just rambling on. I haven't posted anything in a while and just thought I'd chime in on this one. Someone will come along and give a better answer.

The same plug is used on the rockshaft control valve.

That plug is quite a bit larger. The plug I have has a head of about 5/8” and a total length of 3/4” roughly.

Do you have a way to accurately measure the hex size, overall length and thread diameter? Metric would be best. That way we can try to match it up to the specs.

My guess is that during final prep before testing the plug was dropped and lost so the mechanic installed another one instead of wasting time searching for the one he dropped. Time is money and rather than look for the dropped one just grab another and keep going. on an assembly line you always have a stack of different items needed as things move

Next time you are at the dealer ask one of the shop mechanics or maybe the parts guy. Parts guy can pull up an exploded view and maybe locate it for you

I’ll have to take the plug to town to get some better measurements, all I have is a tape measure and I know that’s not the best for being specific.

If I'm looking at the correct part on the parts breakdown, it looks like that electrical connector is the neutral safety switch. The threads on the safety switch are 14mm in diameter. Is it possible this plug was removed to install the neutral switch? (I'm thinking outside the box). :)
