I spoke with you last week (or 2) regarding my stuck 1140 injection pump. I finally got it out, had a broken spring and one corroded plunger. It's back in and running, thanks for your help. I took the anti tamper screw out hoping it would make getting the pump out easier. It didn't help, I'm wondering how to set the screw adjustment properly again, and learn it's function.
Wolfman You once helped me with a throttle problem. Now it's steering.
I read a post that was virtually identical to mine, but he never said how it turned out. I'm not sure how to contact him with a PM. My tractor is 1998 L2900 DT, 4wd, FEL 643 hrs. Won't steer to right. FEL and 3 point works. Steers left but weak. With engine OFF and I turn wheel to right, I hear fluid squirting, and then I see fluid dripping under tractor. Found a rats nest under the steering column by firewall and I suspect he chewed a hole in the right turn hose. My plan is to order two hoses and 2 flare nut male to male connectors, color tape them for identity, disconnect them from the steering cylinder and pull the old hoses out and the new hoses should follow right behind. There is another hose, I assume is supply from the pump to steering controller and another that just has a simple hose clamp. Should I replace all 4? They're kinda pricey. Where does the low pressure hose go? Is my plan sound?

Wolfman, you posess more knowledge than any 5 dealers combined, so I ask you. I have a B7510 with a B2733 quick hitch running a BX2750C blower now. Love the tractor, underwhelmed with the blower. Looking at a BX5455HD, will it fit right up to my existing quick hitch ? If so, still trying to figure which 1/2 shaft to finish it off. Any wisdom you can offer is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Russ.
Thank you for the information on chains. I'm kind of accustomed to 24" rims and kind of extrapolated numbers based on that. I saw John Deere on the box and expected it was for a larger tractor, though you'll note I did include a caveat.
Hey, Wolfman, I didn't think you were rude at all. I'm not a professional mechanic but I observe cause and effect. I did get a LOT of very black gunk out of my flush with Thermo Cure. Subsequent refills and rinses of the system allowed increasing amounts of fluid to fill it. Chemical analysis of the residue may have told me what was happening but that costs money and you need to know where to have it done. I was just happy to get my cooling system capacity back. I don't know what you are but you seem to know enough that you may be a professional mechanic. Thanks for your input and no offense was taken. I am really amazed my new Kubota is so much like my old Mitsubishi - the layout between the two is almost identical. My neighbor's LS is very different. Now go have a great North Idaho week - winter's coming!!
Regarding crud buildup and Thermo Cure - The tractor in question is a D2350 Mitsubishi. I know I could initially install four quarts of liquid into the system. After Thermo Cure and several water flushes I could dump in six quarts of liquid. No, I don't think I got two quarts of crud out of the system. I do suspect there may have been some sort of blockage in there. It's a grey market tractor about 45 years old and spent about thirty years of its life in Japan. Due to anticipated future difficulty obtaining parts I bought a new Kubota L2501 last summer. It's a remarkable machine but similar in many ways to the old Mitsubishi.
