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...

Re: Cutting Edge

Hi, Man. I am in the same boat as Lavoy. I just don't know quite what to say. Except maybe the phrase we used back in my fire and rescue days: Don't sweat the small stuff, and if you're still breathing, it is all small stuff. Sounds silly, I know. But, we were all folks who had gotten into situation...

Re: What is in a JD350 fuel tank

Hi, It has been pointed out to me that, once again, these parts weren't in place in the beginning. They were added as a running change as the years went past. So, an early 350 didn't have the strainer or the sump drain. I know the straight 350 I once had didn't have a strainer. I just figured it had...

Re: JD 2010c Diesel No Start

Hi,

Keep in mind that I was asking how that option works on the 2010. I never had a 2010, so I don't know.

Re: JD 2010c Diesel No Start

Hi, Is that one of those 'flamethrower' type things the old Perkins (and some newer brands as well) engines used? Argh! The name escapes me now. I got CRS. Can't Remember.....Something.... :P Anyway, it screws into the manifold. Has a heater element which looks a lot like an old cigar lighter. Heat ...

What is in a JD350 fuel tank

Hi, I also posted this exact same thing in the FAQ forum. But, there have been a couple recent posts on the Late Model board here where this info might be useful. So, now you can see these nice pics in two places! ;) Or, what is *supposed* to be in a JD350 fuel tank! More often than not, this stuff ...

What is in a JD350 fuel tank

Hi, Or, what is *supposed* to be in a JD350 fuel tank! More often than not, this stuff is missing. I got lucky when I bought my 78 JD350C from Mark a couple years ago. This stuff was actually still in place. Actually, everything was still in place and the machine not all beat up. :) So, the first th...
