Default Orange 'Do Not Adjust' Cap

I have not posted in a while, just mostly lurking... I searched the forum, but found nothing so I hope someone here can answer. While changing my oil and filters recently, I came across this orange cap that says, "Do Not Adjust". I can't find where it goes for the life of me....

Anyone got an idea? Thanks

I am not sure where you found it; on your tractor, in the engine or what! I do not however think it is related to your tractor. The only time I have ever noticed one of those caps, it was on a bottle jack; I think it is a 'dust cap' or similar.
BTW, anybody out there got a 5mm, 0.8 pitch, left hand jamb nut? I need one, which my dealer will order for me if they can find one. It is only, $27.43 for one nut. WTF; are they nuts? Now, they do stock the right hand, and otherwise exact same jamb nut and it is a bit more reasonable; $0.26. Messicks has it for about the same price/cost.

MilkyWay, might contact these folks. https://www.mcmaster.com/=1hl0t5r

Or maybe find a turnbuckle of the correct thread and remove the end you need.

About the size of a dime. I was working on the B7610 HST at the time, but the floor jack was next to me... I'll check that too....

Thanks.

I think Milky-Way has hit the dime on the head. It's a protective cover off of a floor jack pressure-regulator-screw.

For that left hand jam nut, try get this tap from amazon
https://www.amazon.com/Pitch-Left-Us.../dp/B075J85W4H
then drill out a nut with the correct drill for tapping that thread, and create the jam nut for the price of a tap. Now you have a left hand nut, and a tap.

That reminds me of Dakota Johnson in 50 Shades when she was drunk, talking to some guy in the movie and said "you hit the hail on the ned". Some things just stick with you. Also thanks to each of youse guys for help/advice with the nut; I did not get a chance to go there yet but I will. Have a look if your interested.

If still looking for a cheaper alternative to the $27 Kubota nut.

https://www.belmetric.com/thin-jam-n...kcs8sqskpmerr1

Not a jam nut, but economical.
