wash out trying to finish mowing the pasture before the rain this evening after work.
I noticed something bubbling off the exhaust and found it was anti freeze.
Looks like i am going to get to change a water pump.

Good luck! Is it a fairly easy one to replace? I am hoping so anyway!

Yes it's a little short of 200 hrs since I got it. I have done nothing other than check the fluids regularly.

I had been adding about a cup of anti-freeze about once a month this summer. But I thought it was a radiator cap needing replaced.Since it had never gotten the least bit hot.

 

It does not look as if it will be a tough one to change. I am not sure if I will have to pull the radiator to get to the fan bolts? But everything else looks easy to get at. I will call the New Holland Dealer in Sully this morning and see if they have a pump. I checked on line last night and I can mail order it if I have to.

I will move it from the Shed to the Garage as soon as I have found a pump.

It rained last night so I could wait up to a week before I need to plow out another row of potatoes.

WOW!!! I just called the New Holland Dealer and they want $400 for a remanufatured pump??

I found them from a couple suppliers on the net for $85 & $105 last night. Looks like I will be going that direction.

New Holland is, to me, the most expensive for parts. They verge on the ridiculous.

That's a pretty big gap in prices, JD. I've found the same issues trying to get parts for the LGT 165. Best to shop around!

My 1st John Deere F935 had it's water pump start leaking.  Rebuilt off the web around $140, JD dealer wanted about $280.  Contacted the guy that sold the rebuilt pumps, and he sold me the kit for $65 delivered.

Yeah I have yet to find a Kit offered or I would go that route. Napa had a luisting for a pump for the 1510 but not the 1500.

Arnolds Motor Parts said they could send my pump in for a rebuild, but that would take 2-3 weeks.

That was about the same turn-around from this guy I got the parts from, so I called them & asked the guy if he was willing to sell & ship me the kit so I could get right back to mowing.  He was happy to oblige!  Now I just hope I can find him again if I need parts again. When my hard drive went down, so did my info.

ordered a pump from Stevens Tractor Supply in Louisiana. They did not list it on their website, but I called and they had one in stock. It is on the way.
