Yes, for the spring.

Dear Mr 1811 I took your advice on getting the Ford glow plugs and solenoid for my 782D I have been ill and now that I am just now getting ready to install I noticed I have no paperwork with the solenoid and no pos or neg marking on the device could uou help an Oldman out with a drawing or description on how to wire it up to the switch

Please refer to the attached photo for further clarification. Note the positions by the shape of the relay's metal base. Also ensure that the existing original dash mounted resistor indicator is bypassed by taking one of the leads off and putting it on the other lead, then tightening the nut. The factory original orange wire that fed the glow plugs will now be the wire that triggers the relay to function during engine cranking, and also when you turn the dash mounted key switch to the left to power up the glow plugs prior to cranking.

Please ensure that the glow plugs are the NGK Y-103V / 2031. They are not for a Ford. However, the glow plug relay was originally designed for a 1983 6.9L Diesel Ford truck.

Thank you very much I will let you know how it works out.

I did find an issue with the current glow plug power source. It was 12 volts to the resistor and 9 volts on the output but only 6 volts to the leg of the first glow plug power strip. I need to see if too much rust is loading down the wire. After all the machine was built in 1985. Any thoughts??

When you do the relay/new glow plug mod, replace the wires from the relay to the glow plugs as well. That will eliminate the voltage drop. IIRC I think you need 8-gauge wire minimum for the glow plugs themselves.

I finally got around to doing the cooling system maintenance on this machine. I flushed all of the old coolant out, replaced the thermostat, t-stat gasket, upper hose, and bypass hose with new OEM Kubota parts. The lower hose appears to have been replaced much more recently than the age of the tractor. I filled it with 50/50 green antifreeze/coolant. I ran it for 25 mins and it never got above 185.

Looks like a beautiful machine! And I'm one of the rare people that absolutely can't stomach diesels, of any kind. I hate they way they sound, the way the oil smells, the way the oil is always dirty, and the way they all sound like they are ready to rattle apart. And the exhaust smell is the worst! But that one appears to be a well cared for unit, and while it's in your care, she will only get better! Nice find...
It's an acquired taste is all!!
After about 4,000,000 OTR miles or so it will evoke lots of good and/or bad memories!!

I finished up the upper hose with an authentic replacement insulation purchased in a 6' length from Home Despot. Fortunately, it was just over $10. The insulation was cut to mimic pics of original unrestored tractors. The ends have adhesive to seal it up. I glued this to the hose using 3M black weatherstrip cement.
