A tractor friend stopped over today to see my 871 and told me to that the front grille was not assembled correctly.
I had the grey colored screen slide into the red outer grille and mounted to the hood.
He said the screen lies behind the red front grille or in other words the red is placed directly over the screen and then bolted to the hood.
I said i would ask the question here and see what is correct.way to assemble the front grille. Wasn't a big deal - he just had his way of doing things.
