alright got an update for you guys. she melted and dried up here perdy nicely the past 2 weeks. so i got antsy and hooked the ol girl onto 50 ,count em 50! feet of spring tooth harrows. just needed to bust the manure apart on my hayfield so that it didnt clog the swather knife come haying time. so i hooked her up put it in 6th gear to get around 7 mph, and got going. she played with the harrows! in 6th gear! only time it started pourin a little smoke was climbing this one hill in the field, rest of the time it was golden. but she got toasty. rads clogged. full of 25 years of grease from a leaking oil line up in the front end and doing light work just cooked it into the rad core. gotta remove it and clean it. the temp gauge read 200*F and thats not that hot, but apparently the oil dont like it. because at 650 rpm idle the oil presure light come on. but it goes out once the engine cools down to about 195 so its just the clogged rad. once i get that thing cleaned out, im gonna finish harrowing the field, and maybe hook onto my 12 foot CCIL deep tillage cultivator and go work up some quack grass around the edge of some of my fields. but the old 404 diesel is running strong and the old tractor drives like the day it was new. just a little less shiney ;) .

Excellent thread. I was particularly interested in the section discussing fenders. Where would a guy go to pick up a set of the small round fenders like on an early 4010? I have a 1960 (that what I was told) 4010 Standard or Wheatland and the fenders need replacing. Trying to pretty it up and do some local "stock farm tractor" pulls.

4010 looks way cool with the curved fenders. Fixing to put on a gear drive starter on a 4020. Anybody have any recommendations for a cheap gear drive vendor?

The old 4010's had Bendix or American Bosch injectors which parts are non-existant.

Treat them like gold. May have a few parts for them if any of you get in a bind.

Sweet looking tractor. We have an old JD3020 row crop from the mid 1960's. Was told they should have held out for the 4020....

Around here, the 3020, 4020, 3010, 4010's are still in use! Mainly the "small" farmers that run 80 acres or so. Or for pulling trailers in the fields during harvest or other light duty work. Most of the ripping, disking, plowing has went to the big 150+HP tractors now (cab w/ heat, A/C) and 4wheel drive.

Thanks...I'm quite proud of it. The 91 year old gentleman I bought it from in Oklahoma farmed 67 acres with it from 1970 until 2011. Just installed an old M&W turbo set up on it and have been cleaning it up for paint (still knocking the old red OK dirt out of all the nooks and crannies). Hope to have it completed by early spring.

What do you think about using Mobile 1 5w40 synthetic engine oil in a 4010 with the 4020 recall fix?

I bought a bunch when Autozone had the clearance.

Generally I run whatever Amsoil recommends.

I'm surprised nobody is checking back in on this thread.

Has anybody done a dry air filter conversion on their 4010?

Are there any grease/lubricating tips, tricks or secrets?

The last 4010 I had was over 30 years ago. I've been missing it ever since>

I just got a 24 volt alternator for my tractor. I went that route as opposed to converting to 12 volt, as I would have rather done, as the starter has recently been rebuilt and I guessed a new alternator would probably make the pair outlast me.

On the one hand I hope they outlast me and on the other, I hope I stay kicking long enough to have to replace them both and swap to 12 volt at that time
