Bought a positive battery cable for my 3910 last December. Never got around to installing it until yesterday. I found that it was 6" too short! I found the part number on the old one, so back to the dealer's I went to get the correct one. Took the first new one back and exchanged it for the second new one. The second new one was identical to the first, except 6" longer. The first one cost $78.00, the second one cost $48.00, so I got a $30.00 credit!

Is Dalton Tractor not, now? I'm not a frequent customer, so if they have stopped, it could have been a few years. That will leave me going to NY for parts, if true. Add another half an hour to the trip needed...

They haven't been for a while so far as I know. I ship parts to Northern Berkshire County more often now than in years past. I think a guy I work with shipped parts last week to a guy that used to work @ D.T.

I "googled" them, it would seem that they're still there!

I'm certain I didn't post that Dalton Tractor was no longer in business.

I'll just slip in my two cautionary tales, one personal, one oft-seen but not personal...

Personal - the ends of cables can be a problem. As I was about to unbolt my starter to go see if that was why the tractor would not crank with a good battery, I was unbolting the cables from it, and the end of one fell off in my hand. Quick trip to the welding store got a new end crimped on, good as new and a lot cheaper than auto parts/tractor parts.

Not personal - the tendency of the clever Ford routing of the positive battery cable past the projecting seam on the fuel tank to light the tractor on fire when the insulation wears out. Keep an eye on and/or sleeve that cable.

Chappel's certainly charges more than my "local" New Holland dealer (Dalton, MA), as I found out when I was driving past them and opted to get some parts I needed "Right Then" - then I found out I needed more parts and got them from my local dealer, and price-checked what they would have charged for the others.

I'm not doubting that Chappell's % markup may be higher than some other CNH dealers, lot of overhead there! I do think that their % markup is prolly the same across the board, thus the battery cable price difference was most likely determined by CNH's pricing!

JMHO, Dave

How long has it been since Dalton Tractor has been a NH dealer?

They stopped carrying NH well before Keats went out of business, so I'd say it has been 6-8 years. It keeps getting harder to buy parts from a store around here.

"It's all about turnover" I figure the dealer puts the same % markup on all. I figure CNH sets the price according to volume of sales.
Now the bad news: Got the cables changed out and connections nice and shined, only to find that the problem was still there! Let me backtrack a bit! 1st, tractor cranks slow, so I hitched up the charger! 2nd, Charger shows full charge, still cranks slow! 3rd, clean connections & replace cables, still cranks slow! 4th, check battery with hydrometer, Dead cell! 5th, put charger on new battery that's also been waiting since last Dec! I'll change batteries this afternoon!

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
