Case 1830 Uniloader: starter/solenoid

Considering replacing myself. Bad idea? Is this a 10-20 step operation, or am I in way over my head?

Few wires and only two bolts holding it on, I'd do it.
Disconnect the battery first.

As long as you have unobstructed access, I don't see why you couldn't do it.

Can you help?

This is not helpful for you, but is there any way that you can measure the length of your oil dipstick on your 1830 uniloader? I have lost mine, and I need to know the length to replace it.

Welcome to the forums c1319wing!

Have you checked with the Case dealer to see if they have a replacement dip stick? I know on my old ford tractor those are items I can order.

They sell two different lengths for $80. If they order the wrong one, it's a $25 restock fee. If I have the correct length, i don't have to even order special one. I can just cut one to correct length.

Just drain the oil & replace it with the correct amount. If you have a filter you will need to run the engine to fill the filter. let it sit for an hour. than take the measurement & make your own dipstick... Hope this helps,,, Roger
