Kit Fixes Leaky Hydraulic Valves On Deere Tractors
Galen Snoeberger can clean up the hydraulic valve mess often found on older Deere tractors. His kit costs about $100 less than Deere’s fix and takes less than 5 min. to install.
  “The little balls in female coupler tips can get worn down, loosening the connections,” says Snoeberger. “A kit from Deere to redo a valve is around $250. My bolt-on kit is only $150 plus shipping.”
  Snoeberger has been making the kits for about a year. They consist of male couplers with female extension tips and 2 retention plates with bolts to lock the replacement coupler tips in place.
  Installation is simple. Insert the male coupler tips and place one retention plate on the back side of the housing and the other over the male tips. Bolt the plates in place with the 1/4-in., 6-in. bolts provided and screw on the female tips.
  “Some valve castings have a burr on the back side,” notes Snoeberger. “They may require longer bolts, or they can easily be ground off.”
  He explains that his kit can update couplings on older 20, 30 and 40 series Deere’s. When ordering, select the more universal Pioneer-style female coupler tips found on newer Deere tractors. The original Deere-style female tips are also available.
