 JD 2210 Temp Gauge

Gentlemen,
Am new to the site and new to tractors. Will take delivery of a 2210 with various attachments on Friday or Sat this week.

When I reached agreement with the dealer, one of the items I added to the purchase was the installation of an engine temperature gauge. As my significant other (wife of 22 years) often implies that I may be an idiot, I really do not think a diesel engine should be worked hard while relying on an idiot temp light.

Just returned from the dealer where I was told that a temp gauge can not be added to the 2210. No specific reason yet as the tractor "expert" was not there today.

Can anyone provide insight/info on the topic? Does JD or aftermarket make a temp gauge accessary kit?

Seems I've seen something posted on this before but can't find it.

Thanks!
John

Kubota BX's have a temp gauge and no tach.

Deer's 2210 has a tach and no temp gauge.

Go figure.

Is the a place on the engine block to attach a sending unit?

I've looked into this issue and found that you can replace the idiot light sensor with a temp gauge sensor easy enough. Just buy a temp gauge kit. BUT..what I want to do is retain the idiot light. To do that simply requires a "T" with recepticals for both sensor bulbs.

I haven't followed up on that part yet. I need to take the existing bulb fitting to an auto parts place and find the correct fittings to accomplish this. Shucks Auto sez they can do this.

I changed my thermostat from a 160 to a 190 for added heat to the cab heater so feel the engine temp should be monitored a little more closely in the summer, though my boat diesel engine runs a 190 and stays around 180 during high cruise settings. I believe the idiot light on the tractor is set to light at around 200 or so. The light would at least be an immediate visual attraction to a problem where as the gauge might not be, hence..have both.

On the boat I installed a high temp/low oil pressure audible warning system to augment the gauge only panel.

Mark..you're right..go figure. What's another $30 or so to add a gauge with the idiot light?? 'Course gauges take up more panel space, which inspired the idiot light..and most people dunno what a gauge is telling them anyway..duh.

 JD 2210 Temp Gauge

I have a vague recollection that some consoles on new tractors are weatherproof. If not and the tractor doesn't have a cab there might be some difficulty finding a surface mounted all-weather gauge. The alternative would be to get a tractor style gauge and sender and use a big hole saw to cut a hole in the console. I'd keep in mind that not every gauge works with every sender. I also seem to recall that some gauges on JD's I think had serious fogging problems. Between weather and fogging I don't think an auto box-store gauge would be too good.

Tom..good point. A marine gauge would probably work. Stewart Warner has marine gauges that are waterproof versions of their auto gauges.

Good comment too. Don't know why I didn't think marine since we're surrounded by 'marine' during the summer. Well, my version of it does run more to bush and canoes.

 JD 2210 Temp Gauge

I installed a water temp gauge on my 2210. I removed the plug in the thermostat housing above the alternator, drilled it and pipe tapped it. I use both senders.

Also, the reason for the 160 thermostat is due to a situation on these IDI engines when they are started and run at or near full engine load prior to the thermostat opening and allowing coolant flow through the head you can get hot spots in the pre-chambers causing cracks. So the engine manufacturers lowered the t-stat to 160 so the engine gets to temp faster and coolant flow is allowed. This is more common on stand by generators or reefer units that go to full load almost immediately after start up.
