I tried talking to my local John Deere dealer about having the update done to my 1130 SE and he said that it is not warranted work, but they can do it for a cost.  Does anyone have a person at John Deere that I should talk to?

Here is what he told me:

Hello Sean,

I checked with the manufacturer and found that the water seal kit is probably not necessary so John Deere chose not to include it in the 1130SE model.  It is available for purchase for $47.61 plus $9.50 freight.  Installation is charged out at $82.00 per hour.  We have never received a request for this item.

The clutch lever kit would be a warranty repair if your 1130SE is experiencing drive slippage that can not be corrected with an adjustment of the drive system.

Let us know if you are interested in installation or warranty work. 

How can they refuse to supply and install the parts? the 2008 928e and the 1130 were shipped from the factory with the 3 parts missing, how do they figure they are not necessary? it's a seal kit to stop the water from getting on the friction disc and platter, it is a warranty issue, the parts were never installed due to inventory problems at the factory at the time of production, my dealer told me this after i showed him a parts diagram and the gap behind the cover.They first replaced the friction disc, saying it was inpregnated with oil,still had the problem, called them and was told they would get back to me about the missing parts, a couple of weeks go by and i give them a call and the service guy tells me about the inventory problem at the factory, and there was a kit availlable to rectify the problem, but was 7 weeks back order, at this time we were the middle of Febuary , and by the time they would receive the kit, winter would be over, told him i would see him in the fall, took it in last week, had the kit installed, at the same time, i showed him my muffler gaurd was cracked, and how come this years model was a more heavy duty one like the 1130? he looked at mine, took a new 1130 into the back, and switched out the gaurd for me no problem,  took less than 2 hours for the kit and gaurd to be installed, now just waiting for the snow to try it out.

ps, the parts manual you have, doesn't show the 3 parts that are missing, use the Simplicity 1 in the previous post, and show them that 1,  be polite, but perstant, if all else fails, call John Deere customer service, in Canada the # is 1-888-3068 not sure where you are, but if you are in the States, look in your owners manual for the #
or go to Simplictiy and order them there, it's like $15 for the 3 parts and instal them your self

Good morning, Ianningjw good for you, hopefully you won't have any problems now that you have had the updates done,  where did you find out about the clutch lever update? now that it has had the update, could you tell the difference from the original lever to the updated one?
John Deere 928e/1130 clutch lever update?

Good morning, in the other post started by Clay on the JD1130, one of the posts talked about a clutch lever update kit part #1687452yp .i can't seem to find any info about this, i asked the dealer and they say the haven't heard anything about it, if i check on the online parts catalogue, it shows as a good number for the clutch lever, what is this suppose to solve and should i nagg the dealer for this? the blower is going in monday morning for the belt cover seal kit, which should solve the slipping issues???
thank you

Does anyone know what this clutch lever update is? is it worth nagging my dealer about it?

I just purchase the JD 1130SE. I called the JD dealer and he knows nothing about the "Retro fix" for the Drive slippage problem.  The Sevice guy started to laugh when I told him that I was getting my information from the internet. He was not interested in what people were saying and said that he checked and found nothing about a cover or anything from B and S.

Well, I will have to wait until the snow flys in Minneapolis to find out if it slips and has problems. Maybe this is a isolated incident. If you can supply me with the "Fix" that your dealer did for you I can follow up with the dealer.


i had the same problem with my JD 9/28 bought new in december 08, these machines were shipped with 3 parts missing by the belt cover, my dealer laughed at me as well till i had him look up the parts diagram for the belt cover and pulley, it showed a shaft seal, a seal plate and a seal strip, then i took him over to a machine sitting in the show room, and sure enough these parts were not installed, if you go back to post #77 of this thread, the part # are there, but i think these are simplicity part #'s, your dealer has to do this repair on warranty
good luck
