Re: Dozer blade

Hi,

The trunnion plates are integral to the later trackframes. They have four holes to mount the trunnion pins, which the outside blade frame hooks to so it can pivot. Since the 420 does not have such as part of the trackframe, you have to add them.

Re: Seat cushions for 450B

Hi,

I always send Lavoy an email first when I need parts. He usually has what I need. More so than other sources and his prices are always in line. Plus, this avoids buying junk parts like automatically self-disassembling steering clutch fiber discs....

Re: Angling 1010 Manually

Hi,

The only thing I would use hooks on the blade like that for is carrying a piece of drainage pipe. As in, having just dug the trench across the road, now carry the pipe that way for ease of laying it in place. For pulling anything, that is what the drawbar on the back is for. ;)

Re: 40c 5 roller

Hi,

350 master pin looks like the rest, except for a dimple on the end. It isn't as obvious as a 420 master pin. But, to be on a 420, there needs to be a rim sprocket welded onto the 420 sprocket dish (the original 420 teeth are cut off and the 350 rim sprocket welded on).

Re: 420C "Skidder"

Hi, So, I take it this is a drawbar crawler, no blade or bucket? There was no factory canopy in those days. Those are usually home made. Lots of third parties made all sorts of stuff for them. No factory logging arch or winch, but plenty out there from other makers. The easy way to tell a 420 from a...

Re: 1958 420 Battery

Hi, My Dad's 58 had an issue where the fold down piece hit the clutch pedal, so he trimmed it such that it would lie flat with the pedal up. Now the battery slides right out and no messing with the pedal. I have a 440 gas crawler service manual because the reverser and related bits are not in the 42...

Re: 1958 420 Battery

Hi, The Pos goes to the dash right at the battery. The Neg goes to the starter. Cables are very short and need to be very fat. The usual issue is someone uses 12v car cables from the auto parts store. Too skinny. Won't supply enough current. First thing, get a new 6v battery. I use Deere brand. Inte...

Re: 1958 420 Battery

Hi,

Cut a bit off the fold down part. Now it clears the clutch pedal with it up.

I will take a pic of how my dad did his a little later when we have some daylight.

Re: Flywheel Issues 440 GMC

Hi, That last pic clearly shows that this a stress crack. It will only grow larger. When it grows large enough, the flywheel will come apart in a manner I refer to as 'catastrophic self-disassembly'. It will look like the turbine wheel from the 1989 Sioux City air disaster when it does. The one wher...

Re: JD 350 Starter Issues

Hi, All it takes is one cell out of the 12 to have some lead sulfate drop such that it is touching under the plates. Even disconnected, but with both batteries in parallel, the one with the shorted cell will drop the good one so then both are drained. Then, the starter won't do anything even with a ...

Re: 420c not shifting into gear

Hi, I do not see a reverser in the photos. Unless it is the early gear-type reverser and the lever is on the right-hand side and just out of view. The trans is the 4-speed based on the shift lever. The later differential-style reverser has a different center frame and bell housing and the lever is o...

Re: 3315 winch mounting

Hi, Yes, I think the splines on the winch drive shaft are different on the inside than they are on the PTO drive shaft. They are for sure different on the outside. And, the PTO is longer. But, that might only be the part beyond the trans case. It has been a long time since I have seen both shafts ou...
