MH20 - working behind the dash (impossible) ???

Well, nothing is impossible but working behind the instrument panel (dash board I guess it's called) on my MH 20 is tough sledding. I suspect it was the same on the 81, 82, 22, etc. When I refurbished the tractor and put in all the gauges and wiring, the gas tank and tin was off so things were pretty easy. Now that I have to get in there and do some work, it is really a chore to do anything. Hood has to come off for a start and then trying to pull the whole panel up the steering column isn't much fun. My hands aren't all that big but if they were much bigger, I think the gas tank would have to be pulled. Anyone else ever experience this nightmare?

Beige .... not sure if you were replying about my MH20 but there is nothing wrong with my dash, just the way it was designed and installed makes working behind it impossible. Thanks anyways ....

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Yes, I sure did on a 22. When I restored my 81, I made the wiring harness about a foot longer so I could slide the dash up the steering column and give me some room. It is tough thought, had to put a new light switch in my 81 and it was still hard.
I also pull the battery and come up from the underneath side sometimes.

The previous own of my MF202 did this and I'm sure glad he did. Actually he made the bottom cut and four vertical cuts so he had three flaps to bend up and get access. I just bent the flaps up and worked them back and forth with a pair of pliers until they broke off at the top to make the one hole.

It sure would have been nice If they'd have put an access cover on the back of that dash so you could just remove four bolts and have access but, or course, they didn't think of that.

Steve, interesting photo. I assume you had the same situation as I did with your Fergy right? So yours had sort of two panels in the one, the finished panel that you see from the driver's seat and then another one behind (which you cut to gain better access)?
