    Welcome to the Forums Cathandler!:drinkup

    Does the TH62 models have a "one piece" instrument cluster like the 360B/460B models? The main reason why I got rid of my TH460B was the continuing problems with the gauges. Cat replaced it twice under warranty and the fuel guage was not working for a third time when I traded it in (that was the reason why the whole assembly was replaced twice).The first time we ran the lift out of fuel, the guage showed 1/2 tank. :bash

    Thanks :)

    All the guages seem to be working its just the hours well I guess the power that won't switch off even when I've turned the ignition off and removed the key. It will stop the machine but it seems as though its shorting somewhere and so still geting power.

    Yeah, your going to have to get out the tester and do some checking. The 62 have individual gauges, and the electrical fuse panel is under the seat. Sounds like your key is cutting off the fuel solenoid, but not all of your acc. items. You aren't going to find it without a tester, and just start backtracking the system, Electrical is a ball of fun, ain't it. Wish I could give you a easy answer, but its one of those things that when you finally find it, it will be easy, but its finding it that's the problem.

    I know we had trouble with a short on one of the old tractors turned out to be a broken wire up in the cab roof.
