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...

Re: 3315 winch mounting

Hi,

On the 350, the winch drive does not have an in/out lever. That is for the PTO shaft. I don't think the winch drive shaft installs when the transmission internals are for the PTO.

Re: 420c not shifting into gear

Hi, The clutch and brake pedals are hooked to a rod within a tube under the transmission. Sometimes the rod and tube wind up locked together due to junk and rust. You have to free that up first. The two pedals have to move independent of each other. What I think you have going on is the brakes are e...

Re: 350c winch install

Hi, My 350C had a winch and the fuel tank has a sediment bowl. It still has the winch drive stub shaft and the trans has a reverse in it. Both signs of it having had a winch from the factory. Without a winch, it would not have had either the stub shaft nor the trans reverse according to the manuals....

Re: Dozer purchase JD Dozer comparison/info

Hi, Jason knows this stuff, that is for sure. I don't go newer or larger than the 350 C/D series, so this is out of my ken, so to speak. But, read my tag line. That holds true regardless of era or size of machine. You get to choose: Money up front, or time spent and parts bought. Me, if I were doing...

Re: gooseneck homemade vs mfgd?

Hi, Around here (NC) you can't have mobile home axles under anything that isn't a mobile home. Dexter makes heavier ones that look and fit like MH ones for replacing MH ones. The commercial trailer builders, like Hudson, use the Dexter ones. Agri-Supply sells them and all the parts for them. Not too...
