BX 23 AIR CLEANER BRACKET


At 397 hours mine finally joined the ranks of the Broken Brackets.

Did Kubota ever come out with an up graded replacement bracket?

Is the Bracket a warranty item?

I am on my 3d one there is an updated bracket not sure it is any better than the others. I think the solution is to make one out of someting flexable I have some 1/4 rubber strap I am going to make one from.

I ground a "flat" on the bottom of the flange that comes off the engine block and re-attached the air cleaner housing with a long hose clamp.

Problem solved.

My dealer replaced the bracket with an "updated" version although the change, if any, must be very minor because I could not readily identify it. He also made a modification to the mounting flange. According to him, the mounting flange mod is necessary to prevent the problem from returning.

Iíve replaced the band part once and the brackets that hold the band to the engine three times they where all covered under warranty. Check out the BX 24 the air cleaner is part of the radiator mount and not attached to the engine. Hmmmm!

Yes, not one of the best deigns to hold the air cleaner, had to replace mine around 200 hours.
Side ? BX 23 owners. Does your temperature gauge move at all during cold weather? I was not concerned during the summer, as it never hit the first line. However, with my using it more this winter I am afraid that it is not getting warm enough. Now I am not running it hard but I am leaving it run unless not using it for an extended time like lunch breaks or going in to get warmed up. Thinking of putting a wind block in front of the radiator.

Get the engine as warm as the gauge will register, give it a good work out, then carefully open the rad cap and stick a cooking thermometer (the metal ones with a dial gauge) into the coolant and take a direct measurement of the water temperature.

Dashboard gauges are notoriously poor at reading the actual water temperature.

Best of luck.

Placement of the air cleaner is not as easy of a design choice as it might seem. If you put it on the engine, as with the older BX designs, you have the obvious problem many of us have experienced. However, mounting it away from the engine means the hose must absorb all the vibration. So you're either going to break a bracket or wear out a hose. At least the Kubota engineers addressed the problem though.

rlsmith,

My temp gauge doesn't move hardly at all in cold weather. I guess I have the same question for Murf. If a direct measurement of the coolant temp yields something too low, what is the best way to get the temp up if there is no good way to "give it a good workout"? Higher RPM's? Partially covering the radiator?

=====
I was thinking of making one out of spring steel or maybe a heavy rubber bungie strap.
Another Idea is to use rubber fender washers on the bracket mounting bolts.
Another thought is to put a spring on the bolt that is on top of the strap.
