Did you know new holland has an online parts system that allows you to put your model number in. Then you punch where it says figure listing.Then you can scroll down and chose any part on that model,then it brings up an expanded view of that section. then you can go over to the right and get the part number and the price. sometimes you have to pretend to checkout to get the price. Its a neat system but has some quirks when backing up. I use messick.com once you figure out how it works its great. you can go to the dealer prepared with part number and know what it should cost. You can get a good look at what pumps and other high dollar items cost before buying.
I m not great at giving computer instructiions You can probably go to messick.com and figure it out. Mike

When you get the expanded view on screen. make it fit screen then zoom out. you get a better look of complicated sections. you can then move the screen around like adobe reader.
I looked at your ls185b. The b could also indicate high flow. Mike

The letters always seem to mean the second version of that model, a good example are the Cat excavators, first were the Alpha models, then the "bad bee's" then the C's, now the really hot smoking D models.

the "B" on you unit means its a 2nd generation 185. Has the cummins/iveco built engine and the hyds differ from a 185.

steve ignore last post. www.messicks.com/newhollandparts.aspx Mike
its branded as a New Holland engine but is a Cummins, Iveco and Fiat joint venture. So far has been a good engine. Some of the 1st ones has oil PSI problems and we had some fuel system issues but after that its been smooth sailing.

Motrac: I have an early '05 Ls185.b. What kind of fuel system issues have you seen? And do you know if the rubber motor isolators being bad would allow the engine to shake or vibrate, especially when the outside temp is warm to hot? Any tips or pointers?
