So, on my 1520 there is a piece of approx 1/4" plastic tubing that is flared on both ends with a plastic nut that runs from the reserve hydraulic reservoir (behind gas tank) down to the hydraulic pump. I broke one of these brittle plastic nuts and now am in search of a replacement. I have flared my own tubing before for automotive brake lines and such, but not plastic tubing. Is this a special pre-made part? Can I flare my own? I would imagine flaring plastic would require some heat?

I've ended up buying those lines from JD to get a good seal, patch jobs don't hold up in the long run.

I ordered one. John deere sure is proud of their parts! $25 for 3' of 1/4 tubing and 2 plastic nuts. Oh well, that's the way it is.

Deere claimed 1.7B$ revenues on the first quarter of this year while blaming on the flu for having to increase parts price. Who know what their revenues would have been without it....

It is very easy to flare plastic tube. Take a metal flaring tool and heat it with a torch and touch the plastic to it untill you get the flare you want. I do this all the time on 3020 and 4020's on the hyd pump bleed off line. Deere gives you one way to long. I have even bought new tube at auto parts and used the old fittings to make my own. Tom

Well, Tom, guess it's too late! I will have to DIY it next time. Thank you for the help!

Used to have oil line fittings like that
at plant I worked at. I just held a
lighter under the line a few seconds and
pushed it up onto the flare and
tightened the nut. All you need is to
soften it a little just like you would a
plumbing pipe.
