 Grease fitting missing

Just got my first tractor. 4300 Hydro w/ a 420 FEL. I was doing my first round of grease work and couldn't find one. The book shows one for the Hydro pedal link. For the life of me, I couldn't find it. Went to the dealer and we looked at 2 identical 4300 hydro's. The first one, he couldn't find it right off so we went to the other. We immediately found it. When I got home I went right to it and it wasn't there. Did JD make a variation of this link without a grease fitting?

If there was an upgrade, the dealer should have received a tech note from JD. There was some discussion here recently about a problem with HST pedals, but I seem to recall more Kubota than JD. From the discussion, it seems that an upgraded part might be designed.

George - I originally owned a 4400 HST manufactured in the fall of 1999. I currently own a 4400 HST manufactured in the fall of 2001. Although different versions of the owner's manual came with these tractors, both versions gave instructions on how to lubricate two grease fittings on the HST pedal linkage shaft. Neither of the tractors had two fittings; they only had a single grease fitting located in the "clutch housing" near the hydrostatic oil filter. I also have the technical manual (dated on the cover: 18NOV98) and the parts catalog (dated on the cover: May99) covering the 4200, 4300 and 4400. The technical manual has an exploded diagram of the hydrostatic pedal linkage showing two grease fittings. The parts catalog has an exploded diagram of the hydrostatic pedal linkage showing only one grease fitting - the one near the hydrostatic oil filter. Did Deere eliminate a grease fitting somewhere between the fall of 1998 and the spring of 1999? Did that change make it into the parts catalog but never show up in any of the later versions of the owner's manual? Your guess is as good as mine. At least you got to see a second grease fitting. I was doubting whether two grease fittings for the HST pedal linkage ever existed - despite photographs to the contrary.

Thanks Guys. Bernie, if I didn't see it with my own eyes, I wouldn't have believed it. It was definitely there. Talked to my dealer and he said that JD could very well have changed the link. Didn't seem to be too sure of himself. Told me that I was safe to skip it. I do have the fitting in the clutch housing. It helps to know that there is a reference to a version with only one fitting. Thanks again.

There were several running changes in the hydro link on the 4000 series, on the 4300, there were minor changes at s/n 130,001 and another starting at 131,505. FYI DEERE does not advise dealers of all changes, many times we only find them as you do, when there is a problem with them

Joe: I guess I have heard that manufacturers don't necessarily tell their dealers about all part changes. That certainly wouldn't make being a dealer any easier.

I find that the NH parts manual for the Ford '10-series compact tractors is a one way to keep track of production changes and upgrades. However, my manual is a factory reprint and the inventory system certainly changes much faster than a printed manual--even for an out-of-production tractor.

As an example, I ordered a new flasher recently. The part came in and it had a mysterious short jumper wire along with it. The wiring harness plugs on the flasher and wiring harness also didnít match. The flasher had one more contact than the harness.

I finally figured out that the extra contact and jumper wire were for a ground. The original flasher got its ground through its case and mounting bolt. I guess, NH went Ďuniversalí with the part and Ďuniversal partsí have to allow for newer plastic tractor that canít use the chassis for ground. Too bad I didnít keep the flasher packaging to see if the part number on the box was different than that in the manual. The part I got certainly was different than the picture in the manual. It also was an unexpected task figuring out which of the contacts on the new flasher was the ground. I suppose my dealer would have had to figure out the same thing.
