 Battery corrosion solution

Tractors that have the battery mounted in front of the radiator sometimes develop corrosion problems due to battery out-gassing. When I rolled my tractor one of the battery caps came off and acid dumped everywhere, so I had to replace the battery. I mentioned this problem to the dealer and pic 18 shows what they came up with. That should fix it.

 Battery corrosion solution

Well, that certainly seems like a low cost solution, how effective it is going to be I'm not sure about though.

On all our machines there are few little 'tweaks' we do as soon as we take delivery. One is a 'mod' to the battery box, we remove the battery and battery box and spray the entire thing, top, bottom and sides with spray on "Gravel Guard". It is available in large aerosol cans at most any auto supply house. It is meant to be sprayed on the lower portions of the sides of a car or truck to stop stones and dirt from sand-blasting away the prtective coating. It mostly dries in about an hour but overnight is better.

We also spray the rad with "Wax-oyl" which is a sort of thin waxy spray inteded to be used as rust-proofing. It seeps into all the little nooks and crannies and seals everything, it does not seem to affect the rads performance, and it does not melt off either.

Best of luck.

Sorry, no part no. but the dealer told me that the 790 uses a remote vented battery. It was my understanding that they took the cap off a 790 battery. Jazak, since you have a 790 maybe that's not the case. Hmm.

Next to a sealed AGM battery (which none are available that work properly), that is the best solution I have seen yet. You have a very good dealer Ken. He did you right.

Yes, I couldn't be happier with the way my dealer has treated me. Fisher Implement in Hillsboro, Oregon. They're not the cheapest, but the extra cost was money well spent.

Hey Ken, I went to the JDparts website and the online parts manual shows only the individual battery caps. No one piece unit like you showed with the vent hose. Can you ask your dealer if they can find a part number for it? That would be great as all of us with this problem could get that on order and fix the problem. Thanks!

I poked around on JDParts and I think the remote vented cap came off a 4300 battery. The only part number they list is that of the battery, LVA 11725. One would assume the battery would come with this cap, but it is entirely possible that the new batteries don't have it. The pic on JDParts doesn't show the vent tube but the cap is the same and it would be easy to find and install a plastic tube.

I got tired of the corrosion problem and afer sanding and painting several times I replaced my battery with the optima gel battery. I had to modify the tie down bracket abit but now I could go upside down and not worry about spilled battery acid. A few more bucks but well worth it.

jbs, what optima battery did you install? The 4310 is a group 22NF which optima doesn't make, and I didn't find one that would fit.
