My battery died today and all the information on the battery has been worn off or is unreadable. Can you suggest a type of replacement battery?
Other posts I have seen deal mostly with 3-Cylinder tractor or diesel tractors. They have suggested a 17tf battery or any plain automotive battery with at least 850 CCA.
Is it the same for 4-Cylinder gas versions of this tractor? I was looking towards buying one from Advance Autoparts.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Brand does not matter. However I prefer one of many that are produced by Johnson Controls. these seem to be a bit better in quality. Motorcraft, Interstate, Diehard are a few that are or were JC batteries last I knew.

If your tractor is still original 6 volt, you likely want a group 1-VHD battery.

Search back a little, I think someone was just talking about that in the last few days. I could have seen it in the archives though, seemed like it was a Delco. You might type Delco battery in the search bar and find it.

Despite having to disassemble the majority of my John Deere 2010's diesel engine, I was still hopeful I could leave the engine-complete with crankshaft and camshaft-in the tractor. This would make the whole engine rebuild job much easier-and much less expensive! I soon found however, that the #4 conrod bearing had disintegrated, taking with it chunks of the crankshaft journal. As a resul ... [Read Article]
