Re: Up date on 1010C diesel

Hi,

The older IPs use the throttle as the fuel cut off. The lever has to be pulled up past half way or no fuel flows. This as opposed to the later IPs which have an electric fuel cut off. Those will flow fuel with the throttle lever all the way down.

Re: free 440 crawler loader

Hi,

I was like: What is wrong with a crawler painted yellow?

Then, I realized that is someone's screen name. :P

Re: Size 12 volt battery

Hi, Yeah. Modern small 12v car batteries are not as rugged inside as the 6v ones. They don't last so well on bouncy crawlers. Makes the flakes on the plates which form from use fall off the thinner plates into the bottom of the battery faster than they do on a car. And, the 12v has less space for it...

Re: Up date on 1010C diesel

Hi,

Is this one of those IPs with mechanical fuel shutoff? My newer straight 350 had one of those. Had to pull the handle past halfway before fuel would flow.

Re: thermostat 40C

Hi, It will run cool until it doesn't. Make sure you have a proper radiator cap with a vent hole so the expanding coolant has someplace to come out when it gets hot. When it cools, add coolant. They don't work if they aren't full. The M and the 40 are like this. With the advent of 20% greater power ...

Hi,

No thermostat. Thermosiphon system. No water pump, either. ;)

Re: 420c float

Hi,

The original dual valve with rods to the handle setup has a float position. There is a tang on the handle you have to flip to cause the handle to remain in the down position to let it float.

Re: 350B Final Drive Gearing

Hi, Why they are called rails goes back to trains: folks laid rails to form a road for the train to ride on. Early crawlers were called Tracklayers. They lay their own tracks, ride on them, then pick them back up, send them forward, then lay them down again. Yes, they are actually chains with pads, ...

Re: 40C fluid level

Hi,

Nope. Not a Harley. ;)

JD is 2 cyl out of 4 when it comes to the firing. Harley is 2 cyl out of 5. Quite different sounds. :)

Re: jd440ic distributor

Hi,

Old rotor probably has a tiny crack in the plastic allowing the high voltage to go to ground. If a new one fixes the problem, then use a new one. All these parts are consumable.

Re: Alternator or Generator

Hi, Wiring is easy since the battery cable goes to the starter. Get a 12v one. Get a one-wire alternator. Run that wire to the starter. Run a wire from the battery to a toggle switch, then from the switch thru a resistor to the 6v coil. Or replace 6v coil with a 12v one. Then from coil to points. Do...
