Ha ha....then you have 10 or so more screws to get the air-box apart! :ohno:

There are more than 10 Bolts ...

I think there are 5 on the Filter Cover, 11 on the upper Air Box and 8 plus two Hoses for the lower ...

Soft music in a candle lit room with a little dirty talk and the hood pops right off. It's that easy.

Two black Allen Heads coming in from the front through the rubber Pieces - Caution those two have special Tipps !

Two black Allen Heads from the Side at the rear

One silver to undo the Meter2 Cover

two black Allen Heads which hold the Fake Tank down to the Main Switch Cover

two Silver Allen Heads connect the Meter2 with the Fake Tank

Don't forget the seat has to come off and there are 2 more allen heads that hold that down!

vmaxmercer

I'm sorry, you're right, i forgot those two.

But i long replaced these two Bolts with turned down Allen Heads(M6x40 long, turned the Allen Heads down to 6.2mm on the Lathe) so, i can pull the front Seat without using a Tool.

Regarding the Dimension of this Job ....

Yes, i also don't think they made a Masterpiece in mounting that Fake Tank. I really tinker around with the Idea to replace the Bolts with some 1/4 Turn Fatseners like Dzus. On the other Hand, once you know the Drill, it's not that hard and doesn't take long.

Lutz,

Good Job !

I read it and forgot the seat too ! Thanks Rudy !

I just hope he doesn't put it all back together and decide to check his coolant !

I usually just pull the scoops to begin with --It makes the whole job easier to begin with !

Here are the parts your left with to see whats under the hood. Not bad, I have been a Tech with John Deere since 1989 so I HAD to see what made this thing tick.

Very nice illustration!


Couple other pointers:

Lay out bolts in pattern removed ...they are specific for location!

Be very cafeful lifting and replacing around the scoops...don't want to mark one up after they spent 30 minutes polishing each one of them.:)

Item 8 - Be careful tightening, they are low torque and compress a rubber bushing at the rear cover ears.

Item 11 - These may not break loose freely the first time as I believe they thread into brass inserts (dissimilar metals sometimes hang up) Mine was a bear getting out first time.


I've lost count on how many times I've had mine off along with the disfunctional scoops. Opps, did I say disfunctional scoops...I meant hollow and open on the inside.:laugh:

I remember when mine use to look like that with the cover off. Now I have so much stuff tucked under there it's hard to get it back on!

Ty,

I'm gonna guess your right !

But the bolts are not missing !

I just know every time I've done that job(5 times I think ?) I've always taken the scoops off .

Just thinking---Does it make it easier to get at one of the nuts on the rear side if the F & R scoop bolts are out ? So the scoop will somewhat move ? Seems like I remember something like that ?

It gets tougher to remember details the older you get ! :unsure:

You Know What The Worst Thing about Getting Old Is ? :huh:




Getting Old ! :ohmy:
