Yesterday I installed the radiator screen kit from a 3038E,
it was a very simple and straight forward install. The kit comes with the screen, the two guides and hardware. The radiator shroud already has the four holes in it for the guide bolts and the right side guide as a bracket already on it for the radiator overflow hose. The radiator overflow on mine was bolted to one of the guide holes, so I simply had to move it about an inch to mount it to the included bracket. I did shim the top main brackets to move the tranny/fuel coolers out, but this was only to give me a little more room. The screen comes with a lip, probably about 3/16" on the bottom of the screen, I actually ground this off carefully. Now the screen slides in and slides out with ease. It is a bit more work getting the screen in and out than it was on my 1023 and 2025, however, this screen is at least twice the size of them screens. I'm hoping for this to be a game changer come brush hogging season, that is honestly the only reason I wanted this.
The entire install took about 45 minutes, the only tools needed are a 10 & 13 mm wrench, and a ratchet with 10 & 13 mm sockets.
My intention was to show the bulk of this in the video, but it is a small work area. By the time I got my arms, a flashlight and wrenches in there I think the only thing you would have seen in the camera was the back of my hands and arms. But, this is a very simple and straight forward install and I am certainly not a JD tech.
