  1. What happens if its to high? Never thought about that. Guess Im not smart enough to know if acid or basic causes the issue. I presume acidic? I remember talk about the strips. Guess with the internet today, there's no excuse not to be able to find them. Ive never really seen them around here. Never looked to hard either. Sounds like Im about right, maybe a little bit ahead. The filter is cheap insurance. Some years it gets more use than others. Mechanic suggested once a year. Just curious as to other thoughts. Thanks.
  2. Did a search, didn't find anything. What's the lifespan of a water filter? My mechanic say I should change once a year. I put on 3-400 hours a year maybe. Baling and feeding hay. Buddy bought a 5488 and was unaware of needing to change it. He does heavy tillage only with it. I'm guessing type of use is irrelevant, but thought I'd ask.
  3. It seams like oil gets caught in the neck of the tube giving a false reading when it gets low. I had a small leak and discovered it yesterday. Added 2 gallons. Then this morning I checked the dipstick and one side showed fluid very easily and the other side I really couldn't tell. I'm guessing I'm still low, and if it was to it's mark, it would show a reading on both sides. Just a stupid design for a dip stick to have a bend in it I think.
  4. I got a 5088 and I've always felt that the dipstick was difficult to read. I'm sure there's nothing to change to improve it. Don't know if you don't ask.
  5. Go to HTP America. I can get 30# of .030 shipped via postal service for $45 I think. It's forien made, but it's good stuff
  6. Changing out my thermostat. Question #1, how in the heck does it do anything? Nothing there to hold it shut as far as I can tell. The old one looks the same so I guess it works. Question #2, how in the heck do you get the seal out? Tried a screwdriver. Not much luck.
  7. Oh......a blonde moment. I replaced the starter a while back. One wire wasn't hooked up on the starter..........ya Im beating my head against the wall!
  8. Got it figured out. Thanks
  9. The volt guage is normally in the green. It was clear over to the left. OK, there are 2 wires that come out of the harness. One is black...I think, and the other is yellow. The yellow wire goes into a plug. I checked the ground on my test light on the positive post of the battery. Light the test light up bright. When I touch the yellow wire on the plug that would come from the starter, it lights up but not very bright....or dim. Thats a spade connector that plugs into the alternator. The other side of the spade conncetor goes up to a little post on the back side of the alternato
  10. I wondered if a low battery would have enough juice to excite the alternator. Im pretty sure its a delco. Get them from Torco out of South Sioux City IA. The one that was on there I think was a 75 amp......red band. This is a black band, so its 100 i think. Last night I grabbed a battery from another tractor to keep baling. Didn't have enough juice to accuate the net wrap. I was trying to beat a rain storm with lightning and having baler issues....fresh battery to keep the monitor running. For what ever reason I had monitor issues....different story. When I was done, I forgot to shut
  11. Put on a new alternator yesterday, thinking that's what my problem was. Amp guage shows no charging and I didn't have enough power to run the netwrap stuff on the baler. With key on, the big wire coming out of the harness is hot, but pretty dim. I'd think that'd be enough to energize the alternator 🤔? Anyway my mechanic says that's my problem, but we're not sure where the power comes from for that wire. He's worked on a lot of 560-86 series. Not many 88 series. He thought starter. Looks like all the wires on the starter are good and tight. Any ideas? I'm not an electrical man!

    A/C temp control

    Never thought about the thing being stuck open that let's outside air in vs recirculating

    It's on the left edge of the evaporator pic. There's like a #9 wire looking thing on the left edge of the evaporator pic. It's stuck down through the fins of the evaporator.
