430 Fuel level sensor
I need to replace the low fuel sensor on my JD 430. It calls for part AM103333 which seems to be a temperature probe that shorts to ground as it heats up when it becomes less submerged in fuel.
It list for $130, but my local dealer says they will give it to me for $110. Kinda hurts paying that for a fuel level sensor but I do like things working as intended and the redundant safe guard of an extra way to check the fuel level, especially when having extended seat time.
They did state that the part is no longer in production and only a finite amount left available. Any alternative to this part? Perhaps a float that shorts to ground? I think I could modify the tank to fit something like a normally closed float switch.
