1) On a cast iron Kohler twin (K482) are head bolts the same as any old bolt or are they some special bolt? One of my head bolts has a different size head than the others.

 

2) How do I Identify which 1886 I have? I understand there are 6 versions, not 9,576 haha but is there some sort of I.D. tag where I can look. I think some models have a Eaton hydro and some have a Sunstrand right?

 

3) What should the hydraulic controls be labeled on my 1886? Sorry for he noob question, but the decal has faded and I just got this tractor.

ID tag should be on the top engine tin or the side of the dash.  You could post photos of the tractor from all 4 sides and I could ID it for you....

Haha sorry I took the picture at around midnight, and my phone battery was low so I couldn't use flash. I will get some pics tomorrow.

Head bolts can be replaced with grade 8 bolts of the same length. Sometimes they can be an odd length which is hard to match from standard length bolts. Before replacing the head make sure the bolts will thread in easily and far enough for the head to seat properly. A bolt that is binding or bottoming out will give a false torque reading and end up causing gasket failure.

The hood isn't secured but this should give you an idea.

Another question.... I discovered the Trans dipstick is busted. Is it OK to try and weld something up using a few bolts and a wing nut? Or should I try and get a new one?

Looks like a 1886-04.

 

 

Let me see if I still have any of the dip sticks I had made up left.
