Re: 440 reverser adjustment

Hi,

That pretty much describes any working on a crawler with a loader! :P

Re: 1959 440 ICD - How to get it running?

Hi, I always have a 1/8" aluminum plate handy to stick over the air intake of any diesel that hasn't run in a while, or just overhauled. Plate is large enough to cover and keep my hands away. Had to use it a couple times, too. Of course one needs to have the intake open and flat so the plate will su...

Re: thinking newer truck

Hi,

Excellent. In the Ford F250 world, HD gets full floating, SD gets semi floating. I found that out the hard way back in the 80s. ;)

Re: thinking newer truck

Hi,

If there is a hub-like piece with a circle of bolts sticking out of the center of the rear wheel, that is the drive axle flange bolted to the end of the full floating wheel hub where the outer roller bearing is.

If there is no piece like that sticking out, then it is a semi floating axle.

Re: 40c mod for 3 pt or 2 inch receiver?

Hi, Well, the crawler 3pt is different than a tractor 3pt as it has downpressure. And, more force down than up. There were precious few made to boot. If I wanted to be able to do a basic tractor type of 3pt, I would be making my own adaptation of a 40T 3pt to the 40C. I say 40T as it is better than ...

Re: 350 B Reverser

Hi, Link isn't working for me. Might be that I am not on Pintrest, or that sight might not like this tablet browser. I can't really tell. Reverser is all in neutral with power off. No hyd pressure to make the clutches in there up with the engine off. You do need to have both sticks tied back to turn...

Re: 420c 5 roller undercarriage specifications

Hi, Yes, the 420 u/c bits are pretty much all gone. The thing to do now is use JD350 as replacement. Note that it has a longer pitch. So, if you wind up needing to use 350 rails, you cut the teeth off the 420 sprocket and weld on a 350 ring sprocket. All the u/c wears against each other, so if your ...

Re: How much can I swap from a JD 450 to a 350?

Hi,

Unfortunately, none of the major bits. 4-cyl v 3-cyl, HLR v Reverser, etc. All of the 450 is larger than the 350....

Hi, Yep. You bought a blade and a winch. But, it is better than that. You bought yourself a *project*! Something to do! Keeps you out of the bars at night....or, drives you to one! :P At least it came to you completely assembled. Not on two trucks! ;) Keep with it. When you get it done, and push tha...

Re: 1010 Dozer Blade

Hi,

These are the things we tell folks they will never find one of when they bust one after making a power-angle-tilt conversion.

I think the only way to get one is by buying a parts machine. So, my first check would be with Lavoy. He has some parts machines.

Re: 440ICD Starter Woes

Hi,

Sounds like the shaft and/or drive is worn. Doesn't take much for the torque to bind it, and then it can't release.

Re: 26 Hr 350C

Hi, Well, it ended with no buyers but had 56 watchers. It was off a couple days and then relisted. It has since been pulled early 'due to an error in the listing'. Usually, that is eBay seller-speak for 'I sold it outside eBay because I don't want to pay my seller fees'. In this case, I think the er...

Re: Track pin removal

Hi,

Yeah. The manual is, shall we say, optimistic. I think they are reusing a line from an older manual from the days when they used the longer master pin with the round head on one end and the clip on the other end to hold it in place.

Re: JD 450C frozen track adjuster

Hi,

My guess is rust in the bore. That can be some tough stuff. I have not had to deal with it in a track adjuster, but have in long-sitting engines.
