    So my dealer did the Kubota update, where they put the turbo spin pre cleaner intake and the updated dash with fancy light. Our problem is the rubber hose running from charge air cooler to top of turbo keeps blowing off. It's a black molded rubber hose, with the fancy clamps. Dealer keeps having us bring it back (3 times now)
    but after 8 hrs or so it blows off. They say it has 6.5 lbs of pressure and when its running it swells up under load. They told me others are doing it too, so does anyone else have this problem? Can you go back to the old after they update it? Frustrated. Thank you

    Have a look at the Donaldson catalogue, ( same as filters). They may have something better.

    Boosted hose should have nothing to do with a precleaner. I can only assume that the boosted hose is of a new shape to clear the precleaner.
    From my diesel drag racing days, we would coat the boost hose nipples with hairspray after cleaning them, before installing the hose. But, this was for 60psi + connections.

    How about pics of the new precleaner install? I put precleaner lids on my svl75 & SVL75-2 machines.
    And a pic of the fancy clamp that keeps letting go?

    We have a newer 95-2 that came with the updated filter. Just over 300 hrs and never had this happen

    Put a self tapping screw or 2 through the hose into the nipple underneath the clamp that (is supposed to) holds it on.

    So the dealer put a new turbo on, old one the port was at 11 o'clock, new one is at 12. New hose, and new charge air cooler per Kubota. Had some big brass out there studying up on it. Hope this fixes it. Also have some pics. 1st one is Jose coming from charge air cooler, where it used to blow off. 2nd is where it hooks to turbo. Noticed they went back to cheap radiator style clamps! Dealer has been awesome in taking care of it. Couldn't ask for better people.

    Ours just went in yesterday! Dealer called to book it in, luckily I was working near by so I dropped it off... they showed me the fancy dash light upgrade too... not impressed
