Re: Bobcat 453 - won't start 10/1/2014 5:33:45 AM   (Total replies: 1)

Yes, the 453 does have the same fuel line set up as the bigger machines but its so much easier to change on the 453 because the fuel tank is right behind the cab instead of under the engine.

Don't have to hang a jug on it to get a temporary fuel source, Just run new longer line out the door and drop it in fill port on the tank.

453 has a Kubota D722 engine

Are the lights on the BICS box on? None are flashing?

Sounds like the traction lock solenoid is functional or you wouldn't be able to move it anytime.

Maybe the override button switch has gone bad. You could pull the panel and use a meter to check it.

Re: bobcat 643 hissing cylinder? 9/8/2014 6:13:21 PM   (Total replies: 1)

Could be the piston seal or sometimes the nut holding the piston on the rod comes loose and fluid leaks thru the piston.

Here's how to test for a internal leakage.

My Borg Warner catalog shows the cap as part number C563 and the rotor as C577 for the Mitsubishi 4G series industrial engine. CARQUEST and Napa have always been able to cross the Borg Warner numbers for me.

The gauges going dead has me stumped. If it was just shutting down to protect itself then then I don't thing the gauges should go dead first. Check a couple things while we wait for some other minds to chime in.

Battery cables clean on both ends

All the fuses, relays are seated good and have no corrosion.

Pump drive belt(inside the large plastic cover on the left side of the engine) isn't broke or loose.

Can't tell for sure without the serial number(year means nothing on Bobcat, everything is serial number driven) but you likely have a digital instrument panel, if so press and hold the lights button for 2 seconds and see if any diagnostic codes show in the hourmeter display.

Press and hold the lights button for 2 seconds, any codes will show in the hourmeter display.

Try calling one of these places.

The “H” configuration on the stock heater is so that there still will be some flow thru the bypass hose when the heater control valve is turned off. There's a small orifice in one of their fitting that makes most of the coolant flows to the heater.
