Has anybody cross referenced a thermostat for the JD 60 tractor,,I?ve got the original in mine and don?t want to pay a gold nugget to replace it. This original measures 2-7/8? wide which converts to 73.025 mm. Figured someone has knowledge of an automotive thermostat that will fit.

What year is it ? Mine is '53 and has shutters operated by a Sylphon (bellows type thermostat). and linkage located at the front bottom of rad. Managed to find a NOS Sylphon on E-Bay.

grayrider,

Ran into this problem with my 70 gas a couple years ago. After searching this site I found a thread that addressed your (my) problem. Mother deere is too expensive and when I asked my dealer if I could see the one they had in stock it was easy to see it would not fit. Thanks to buickanddeere I found a Gates stat that fit perfectly. Here is a quote from buickanddeere, "Try a Gates stat for about $40 on eBay etc. the #33049 is 2.875" in diameter and is 190F.
There is a Stant that also fits. A #45479 or #13479 for the cheaper Stant. If you prefer NAPA then a #357-180 or 33388 .
There, those are three sources of stats that will work".

I used the Gates 33049 . The NAPA 357-180 did not fit, looked just like the one my john deere dealer had, sealing flange too thick. Give B&D the credit, this is good info that will save you money as it did me.

upon which 60 you have.

The 60 throughout production had three distinctly different cooling system cooling control systems . The final version also provided the much needed bypass circulation .

My father s old 60 has the ill fated bellows shutters temperature control .
If it was more than a couple times a year parade tractor . I would remove the mechanical fan and install an electric pusher in front of the radiator . With the electric thermostat set to about 210F with a 50/50 mix of coolant .
