Default DK55

Just joined the forum and I have a few questions on my DK55.

Mine is a 2013 model, 4WD with Cab and a loader. I set out to buy a "green one", but the $18,000 price increase led me to the Kioti. I have about 300 hours on it and zero issues so far. Great machine, plenty of power and easy to operate. Earlier this year I added a hydraulic top-link cylinder (Cat 2) and that works great for implement adjustments.

Hear in the SE it gets VERY HOT & HUMID in the summer and the AC seems to work OK until it gets 90 F or better and sunny. I know there is a lot of glass around the cab and that produces a lot of heat. I do need a bit of freon added and check the belt tension and I plan to do that tomorrow, but I ran across a WARNING label in the cab that states "...... close the heater valve during summer months for better AC operation". Can you someone tell me (or a pic) exactly where that valve is under the hood?

Second, does anyone have good filter cross reference #s for the DK55, and has anyone found a replacement cabin air filter cross?
