John Deere LT133

I have one of those John Deere LT 133 ....built like a tank....lawn tractor. Steering this thing is like trying to steer a 1958 Impala, with the power steering disconnected....UGH. Also, the hood hinges are broken, and would rather not spend $300 for a new hood. Are there adaptors available to substitute for the hinges...? Thanx much for any info.
Charlie.

No, there are no adapters that I am aware of. You will have to either buy the parts or get creative and fabricate something yourself.

Generally once the hood hinges break, the rest of the hood is not far behind. The plastic the hood is made of dries out and gets very brittle and begins to break apart. Eventually you will barely be able to touch it without it breaking. Very common problem on Deeres. Even their farm tractors... imagine how upset farmers are to find out their broken hood costs $3,000 to replace!

The front end has grease fittings, have you greased it?

I was afraid of that.....well, with all the good epoxies, and adhesives on the market today, I'll attempt something. Thank you for the reply.

You can do a lot with fiberglass and some scraps of sheet metal.

I have yet to find any glue, epoxy, or fiberglass that sticks to this plastic. JBweld doesn't even stick to it.
