  1. Should be able to find at a steel supplier or give a local machine shop a call. That shaft should be available off the shelf. Maybe Fastenal. John
  2. You honestly think the green goblins won’t do the same. Last I heard they don’t want you to be able to change your own oil. John
  3. Got a part number of the head. I have a head for a MD in the shop (as long as the boys haven’t tossed it out) and it might work. John
  4. If you try turning the engine with the head off you’ll need to lock down the cylinders wth bolts and washers. If you don’t off times the piston will lift out the cylinder and then you’ll have to tear it all down to reseat the cylinder. Do not ask how I know this. I’d have to lie. John
  5. 20 litres will do it John
  6. 5 gal (20 litre) pail of ep2 is what was recommended for the JD 882 DLC I have. Used the bulk fill pump on the pail and a hose into the cavity as you swing the house. John
  7. Great story and thanks for getting back on your repair ole815. Always good to hear back on someone’s repair and experience to help some of us others along. Got to pull apart my other 240 and will be looking for some of your findings. Thx John
  8. Didn’t happen to pull the drive shafts off the final drives?? If not that tranny sure was spinning. John
  9. You can buy the u-joints at any heavy truck parts vendor at a more affordable price that CNH. They will be greaseable. Also you can cut two holes in the shield so you can grease them once or twice a year. The drive shaft only goes in one way some are marked some are not. John
  10. It will be more and more of an issue as time progresses. I can buy some parts for the early mx240-280,215-285 from outside sources not made in China. If to many of us do this CNH will stop making, stocking just because likely their buying from the same sources and adding their profit margins. From experience some parts are cheaper like Cummins parts from a Cummins dealer but say MX exhaut parts unless you want a straight pipe is not available aftermarket. Supposedly the straight pipe may help with heat but you don’t want to listen to it all day. jmo, John
  11. Drink some milk from cows that where let out to graze on sugar beet tops. That’s a whole new milk experience. John
  12. Not much help but would it be possible they’re tied to the low beam high beam switch? On when in high off in low. John
  13. Top tank center can see it when you open the top screen. If you’ve ever had any oil in your cooling system it will impede the probes ability to sense the level. John just beat me to the response.
  14. You can roll the chain over the frame rails and your good but hooks or hold downs need part # to be legal but as in many parts that’s up to the the officers mood of the day. Also now you need the weight rating of the binder, ratchet strap, cable or chain clearly visible or you SOL. John
