This may be a dumb question, but how are you supposed to get
to the gauges to change them? Does the forward section of the
dash panel come out without removing the steering wheel and
the aft portion of the dash? There's not enough length in the
the wiring of the ammeter to take the aft portion off over the
steering wheel. In fact, not enough to take the gauge out of the
dash, so I'm thinking it must have been wired in place.
The tach comes out easy enough, but my hand won't fit through
that hole to work on the other gauges.
Unfortunately, the shop manual I have doesn't cover the gauges.
Probably assumed it was so simple even I could figure it out. Rolling Eyes

Thanks PTFarmer, that would definitely help on my TE-20, but in
this case, taking the battery out doesn't help. There's still a metal
panel between the battery and the gauges. That's what I'm
wondering if it can be taken out toward the front of the tractor.
All of the gauges except the tach are enclosed between that panel
and the dash that holds the gauges, ignition switch, etc.

There is no easy way, if you are going to put new gauges, and rewire it, its easier to cut the wires, pull the steering wheel, then pull the dash off. If you are going to rewire it you can do it with the dash off, leave the wires long, then bundle excess wire up after you put the dash back on. If you ever need to pull the dash to work on something you can unbundle the wiring, pull the steering wheel, and dash without cutting the wires.

nothin but a major PITA to replace gauges on a 35. I did one last winter. I took the dash panel and cut most of the inside portion off. looks like heck but with the hood closed it is not noticeable. if you can find a helper with tiny hands that is a plus.

also in order to run the temp gauge correctly the battery tray should be removed. I did not do that and the new temp gauge line runs OVER the battery but it works.

have fun ! (no you won't)

I may have to eventually take a reciprocating saw or grinder/cutter, but I have started out with a 3 1/2 inch hole saw. I was tempted to go with a 4 inch but that would have brought me a little further right from the fuel gauge. Tried to cut the flattest area. I am replacing it along with the oil pressure gauge.
