Hello all,
I am new to the forums but have read many posts on this site over the years. I just recently bought a 1986 ford 6710 diesel 4x4 with a western loader on it. I am trying to get all the fluids changed and am currently working on getting the air filter changed, and realized that (I know this sounds dumb) that I cannot get the front grille open to save my life. I feel like its right in front of me, but i can not open it at all. There are two rubber hook type things on the front, leading me to believe that all i would need to do is open those and it would fall down/open, but it has not. What am I doing wrong? Do i need to remove bolts somewhere? is there a magical elf hiding under my hood holding it shut? thank you in advance for the answer,and hopefully it is super complicated and you need to be a rocket engineer with 4 hands and be born on a tues to figure it out so i wont feel as bad.

Thanks for the help, I ended up using a little bit of elbow grease and helped it off, but I do have another question, I just got my owners manual for the tractor and it says to use ETIC 137A oil in the tractor, where can I find that at or is there an equivalent that can be used that is readily available?

All purpose model... you need to undue the latch on either side, pull up and remove the mushroom air horn cover, then flip up the front hood piece. after front nose is folded up, there is a kick stand inside to hold it up.. then the grill can be pulled up, then forwards to remove if needed

row crop model.. two levers on each side of hood can be pulled out a bit and turned up.. then each side panel can be removed for access as needed..... The front grill is bolted in place and not normally removed.

normally a 6610 is an all purpose model and a 6710 is a row crop model.

Not so. 6710 has removable side panels to the immediate rear of the grille. Turn the little handles 90 degrees to straight up. Pull the top of the panel out and lift it off the pegs on the bottom.

I don't have a series 10, so this might not be 100% accurate...
Those latches allow the front part of the hood to flip up. That gets you to the air filter. The grill can be removed once the hood is flipped up.

Today's Featured Article - It's Alright Where It Is! - by Anthony West. I have a tale of a different kind to tell. Whilst rooting in the hedge bottoms this week I had cause to visit Chapel lane Farm, the home of an eccentric gentleman by the name of Austin Kendall. I had heard rumours that an old Case Model C was languishing away in the back of one of the outbuildings there. So off I went in search of what would turn out to be a very rare and unusual tractor. Mr Kendall is an excitable chap to say the least. He is amongst the last of a dying breed of farmer who ... [Read Article]
