The frame of my Woods 1020 loader is blocking access to the lower cap screw of the starter on my JD 2130. Looks like I will have to remove the loader and then the loader frame on the right side. The loader has a quick connect, and the legs to support the loader are in an access point on the loader. I can get the legs out, but I can"t figure how to attach them to safely support the loader. So far I have not found a manual for the loader on line. Any suggested would be appreciated.

Thanks. I'm still having trouble figuring how to get the loader off. I found this link to a video of a different loader, which looks similar to mine. My tractor has two support tubes stored in the same location as the video, and the main pins attaching the loader is similar. From the video, I'm wondering if the tractors has to be running in order to remove the loader. If so, that is a problem, since the tractor won't crank with the bad starter.

If tractor doesn't have hyd hi-lo or reversr just put it in 8th gear and tow start the engine. Then you can operate loader. Parking stands should "pin" close to the "bend" in the boom.

Back when I worked for a Dirt Contractor, he had a couple of JD310 TLBs with that PIA bolt holding the starter on, and removing the loader on them is not an option. We heated and bent a wrench to get in there to remove and then retighten miserable thing.

After finding a manual for a similar LU126 loader, I have concluded that the tractor has to be running with hydraulics to properly remove the loader, so I'm trying to come up with an alternate plan. The loader is normally locked to the frame with a removable pin, and is supported by a larger main support pin. I installed the support legs as shown. Next step would be to cut a 2x4 and maybe a 2x6 to support the 2x4 on the ground. The 2x4 would be slightly longer than the distance shown. I would wedge the 2x4 between the loader as shown to support the loader, and then remove the pin. Then I would use a sledge to slide the bottom of the 2x4 until it supports the loader enough to clear the main support pin. Then I would tow the tractor backwards enough to clear the main support pin. Once that is done, then the support legs should support the loader, and I could remove the 2x4 and pull the tractor backwards away from the loader. Then I would loosen the frame of the loader enough to give clearance to get to the starter bolts. Does that sound like a plan? One possible problem is that the small bucket that is attached may not be heavy enough to hold the front of the loader down. Guess I will deal with that when the time comes. Smile

Have the same loader. To remove -- tilt bucket down to place weight on lower pin in picture. The top pin with the t handle can then be removed. Then tilt the bucket back onto the legs. Frame will raise up out of supports. Remove hose back out of loader. Reverse to install. The flatter the area the better. Top pins can be aggravating.

Thanks. I bought a half moon wrench, but it has too much curve. Heating a straight wrench and bending it just a little may be worth a try before I spend a lot of time trying to remove the loader. Sure is a good thing I'm not using this tractor to try to make a living. Smile

I had thought about trying that, but it does have a hi-lo shifter, and the manual said pulling it off would damage the transmission.

Not knowing ANYTHING about you situation, I'm wondering if you could'nt drill a hole in the obstructing frame, large enough to gain access to the starter bolt. My philosophy is---"gotta do what you gotta do".

Funny you should mention that. I also have an old JD 1020 with a similar starter. I looked at it yesterday, and it has a notch that apparently was cut in the frame with a cutting torch. I"m betting someone cut the notch to get to the starter bolts.

Back another tractor to it and use it's hydraulics to dismount the loader. Then pull the tractor away and pull it to start it, and drive it to where you want to work on it.

That's my backup plan. I have a friend with a crane, who said he would come lift the loader off for me. Hmm... Maybe this would be an excuse to buy that miniexcavator I have always fancied. Smile

just get another tractor and plug the hydraulics from the loader into it, unhook loader the way the book says and roll dead tractor out from under it. Pretty simple really.

Problem Solved: I managed to get the starter off without removing the loader. Went to Advanced Auto to buy a cheap 12 point 9/16 wrench that I could bend slightly. But I went ahead and tried it first, and was able to turn the bolt a few degrees. Then I turned it over, and found that the 12 points were just slightly out of line, so I was able to get another bite and turn it a few more degrees. It took about 30 separate bites to get each full 360 degree rotation, but after an hour or so it finally came loose. Thanks for all the suggestions. I know one thing: When I get the tractor running, I plan to practice taking the loader off and on a few times, so I will understand better just how it works if this ever happens again.
