I'm about to split my 2510 to replace the rear seal and will need to cap or plug various lines. Does anyone know of a kit with a good assortment of sizes? Or is this better done one-plug-at-a-time from Deere? I found some auto parts store kits but they seem much overpriced, for just small pieces of plastic. Thanks.

Thanks for all the responses and ideas. Tom, per the block number I believe this one uses the later cheaper, easier seal. Guess I'll find out soon. Thanks.

Can't you just wrap a piece of plastic around them and secure it with a rubber band, women's hair tie or a zip tie? It works for me.

I have a collection of caps, plugs from hydraulic hoses and valves I have purchased. A couple years ago at my hardware/farm and ranch store I found some tapered rubber plugs in different sizes. they work good and being tapered the cover a pretty good range. They were sold individually not a kit

Years ago I went to a hyd place and bought a nice assortment of metal caps and plugs and a nice plastic storage bin for them. Not sure of the cost but we do use them fairly often. I also have a drawer of saved plastic caps. For one time use you might want to consider just buying an assortment of corks. Another hint is if the tractor sets for a day before splitting much of the hyd oil drains back and makes less mess. Drain the antifreeze ahead of time as well. Another hint on a 2510 if your tractor is a very early one do not buy the way overpriced seal from Deere. Update your rear housing to the newer number. Ask for housing for a combine as they will be cheaper. You will also need the special tool to install the seal. Tom

I can't help you with the immediate question. I have saved all caps over the years and have 5 gal pail full. I buy clear silicone in the little 3oz tube, I think it is? They come with a nozzle I don't use, but save. They come in handy for plugging smaller lines, similar to the old golf tee.

Hydraulic shop near my sells a kit with a selection of soft plastic plugs and caps that would work in most cases.

I have saved caps and plugs for years and I still don't have one to fit everything. I often use aluminum foil to cap lines. A 4x4 piece of foil covers and caps lines nicely.

I save plugs/caps every time I got a line or hose with one on it. A hydraulic shop with have steel plugs and caps. Me personally if I don't have plug I use a rag to keep dirt out.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review - by Staff. When we finally checked out the 3000 PSI North Star, the whole story chaned. This unit was equipped with an 11 HP Honda engine with fuel shutoff, adjustable flow and optional syphon degreaser dispenser. It didn't have a pressure release or electric start to facilitate easy starting but according to the instructions, simply pulling on the trigger while cranking was sufficient. This method of starting proved more than adequate and kept the cost down on the unit. It had all the important ... [Read Article]
