Re: Looking for 450 tool tray pictures or measurements

Hi, Its away! Stan With the board out, my only tool in the tray - a hammer to work the tilt wedges on the blade - is now lying in the bottom of the hydraulic tank box. Probably a better place for it anyway. Shorted starting batteries are really scary! I used to teach volunteer fire and rescue folks ...

Re: Looking for 450 tool tray pictures or measurements

Hi, You can see in the pic where I show the straps in place, one end of each strap slips into a slot. I can't imagine how the whole tool tray would move downwards such that it contacts the positive battery terminals. But, I can all too readily imagine a tool bouncing out of the tray and slipping dow...

Re: Looking for 450 tool tray pictures or measurements

Hi, I think it is a Deere item. My 1968 straight 350 had the board but the tool tray was gone. That one had the same cross bits added as this one. You can see the one on top of the board which keeps the tool tray from going all the way backwards. There is one on the bottom as well which appears to k...

Re: Vandalism guard and tool tray insert for the left box

Hi,

Well, it didn't get off today. I did get some pics, though. I stuck them in the other thread specifically for this toolbox part of this thread:

Re: Looking for 450 tool tray pictures or measurements

Hi, Ok. It isn't shipped yet. I can't find a box near the right shape for this. I see where my wife has one with some of her crafting stuff in it, but I better wait until she comes home this evening before I, well you know, get in Trouble! :P And, didn't get pics done yesterday. It was a day trip to...

Re: Looking for 450 tool tray pictures or measurements

Hi, They sit in the Outbox until they are read at the other end. I will get some pics of the bits today and post them, then pack them up to ship tomorrow. For those folks not following the other thread, I'm loaning my 350C tool tray so it can be used to make new ones. The 350 having the same as the ...

Re: Vandalism guard and tool tray insert for the left box

Hi, I am good with sending you my tray and you don't have to be all in a hurry to send it back. Keep it until you know you don't need it for any 'now, how exactly, did they do that?' moments. ;) All I have in it is a hammer for the blade tilt wedges. PM me your shipping address and I will get it off...

Re: Vandalism guard and tool tray insert for the left box

Hi,

Is the 450 tool tray the same as the one for the 350? If so, I have a tool tray for my 350C which could be used to make up a pattern.

Re: Rotating flywheel for timing on 450c

Hi, There are different tools by era. Might also be by engine type. Probably best to check the special tools section in the service manual for what you have. I had one for my 68 350 and it works on my 78 350 but not on my 08 5103. All are 3 cyl diesels. I went to my Deere dealer and their are about ...

Re: root rake for jd440ic

Hi, I have the 58 420c and the 78 350 parked next to each other and the only difference between the blades I can see is the 350 one is wider (outside mount v inside mount). And, the 350 has ears on it to mount a rake. Sure is easier to angle the outside mount blade v the inside mount one, too. So, I...

Re: Rotating flywheel for timing on 450c

Hi,

There is a tool for that. Essentially a pinion gear which goes in the hole. Put a ratchet on the other end to turn the engine over.

Re: root rake for jd440ic

Hi, The 63 blade for the 440 was pretty much the same as the 62 on the 420. Not sure about the 64 for the 440, but suspect the same as far as a root rake goes. Anyway, my 62 manual shows one as being its own unit. Looks like you remove the blade from the frame and put on the root rake. Finding one i...

Re: Purchase questions

Hi, I will have to go look at my 350C tach, but IIRC the 540 power shaft speed is 1500 RPM. Not 2400 like on the wheel tractors. So the crawlers have lower PTO power than wheel tractors. The other thing about adding a shaft to a crawler that doesn't have one from the factory is no reverse in the tra...

Re: Cutting Edge

Hi, I think the way you do. We are talking as if we were in the same place. I have always thought that way online. That is because I have been in amateur radio much longer than online has existed. I began in the traditional way: Morse Code. Not voice, so I am not bothered by not hearing anyone's voi...
