I was looking for a place to install the air filter service gauge (tells you when to change filter) on my 1025r (I had one on my x758 and I miss it) when I found this thing in what would be the perfect place to put it:

The white plastic thing screws out easily and there seems to be nothing there but a brass threaded hole.

What is it? Is this where the air filter gauge used to be?

That's what I thought it was. Can I still buy this indicator from JD?

Cute looking device, but a visual check that I do every month followed by a cleaning from my air chuck is my go to method. $50 for an indicator is a bit pricy for me and IMHO too late when it does it thing. :dunno:

I agree. It's a Donaldson item(X002252), $11.26 Cross-over part here.

The fitting is a pipe thread 90°, 1/8" x 1/8". Local hardware store should have that.

I bought the Donaldson unit cheap on flea bay as well. I thought I would need a 90 degree fitting to clear the hood but you don't. A restriction guage is an excellent method to monitor air filter condition without having to constantly remove and blow out the primary element. I have seen many filters on industrial compressors that looked good but were restrictive.

Exactly. Each time you open an air filter canister you are taking the chance of dirt entering the system. A diesel engine's worst enemy is dirt.

When I worked for the state (and instructed) with heavy equipment the operators were not to touch the air filtration system unless an emergency. You were instructed to only go by the air restriction gauge, and if shown that the filter needed changing, only a mechanic was authorized to do so.

All it takes is dropping a filter on the floor to damage it's seal - or too much compressed air.

Yeah, I know, might be overkill for our little tractors. But I carry knowledge like this with me the rest of my life.

Awesome find! I was curious about that too when I was looking around but just figured it was for some sort of maintenance or diagnostics. I think its a cheap, easy peace of mind indicator that I want. As a matter of fact, just purchased one of an auction/bidding site for $18 using your guys part #s. Thanks a bunch guys and mine should be here shortly.

Go to the auction/bidding site and just enter 302215680680 into the search bar. For $18 you can't go wrong!

My 1026 came with it and it works great. Never steered me wrong yet and it does let you know when it's plugged when you don't think it should be.

Well, you guys bought all the 302215680680 that were on ebay. I found some more for the same money on ebay by searching for X002252. I bought the two package for 22.15 including shipping. Anybody close to Brainerd or Hutchinson, MN, I'll sell the extra one for $11.00 if you want to stop over.

This place seems to have them for $17.41

I wanted to mention also, if I think back through the fog of last year that underneath my plastic plug in my pipe behind the air filter there may have been an insert of a pressed felt type material. I determined that it was fixed in place and did vent through the pipe. I figured it was maybe to help dampen vacuum pulsations or keep dirt out or in I dunno... But I left it in place and just used a 1/8-27 close nipple to mount the filterminder. Could have added a 90 but had room to leave it off. The filterminder seems to work fine.
