John Deere Coolant Eye
I just called a Deere dealer today to see about getting a Coolant Eye so I could make myself a coolant filter... BUT, the parts dept. said it was a discontinued part? The greenhorn on the phone had no idea what I was originally talking about but thankfully I got the part number (TY16423) from the good people on the forum. Does anyone else know anything about this? I also saw that napa has a visual radiator checker (703-1627).... but I heard this one wasn't as good?
I may just end up skipping the eye, unless anyone has any suggestions?
Another question I had (now I'm the greenhorn)... When using the brass tee's in the cooling filter system, how does the pump force the coolant through the filter? Wouldn't the coolant just continue to flow strait thought the tee and bypass the filter altogether?
