Re: 455G.. starting problem

Hi, Cut off switch is good. Means you don't have to dig further in that direction. Check the batteries, and then wander straight into the starting circuit. The alternator is a good point. If it isn't charging properly, you might well get running current but not enough to charge up for starting. Here...

Re: Ripper shank source?

Hi,

I was about to make a comment about something actually being cheaper from Deere??? Then, I decided against it. Then, I decided why not say it anyway? :P

Re: 455G.. starting problem

Hi, Yes, that was what I was thinking. It cranked a couple turns, just enough to smell the fuel coming out the exhaust, and then died. So, I immediately think 'battery'. We all know they like to go all of a sudden. And, having two seems like that'd be better but a sad battery always yanks a good one...

Re: 455G.. starting problem

Hi, When you say 'the batteries are now flat' overnight, that would have me looking for a load which stays on when the key is off. If I didn't find that, I would be analyzing the batteries themselves before the starter. I presume this has two batteries in parallel. One weak cell in one battery will ...

Hi,

Aw, man! I hate when that happens! :P

I blame the Butterfly Effect, even though Diesels have no Butterflies! ;)

Re: Looking at a 450C anything to watch out for?

Hi,

One thing about turning pins and bushings is the chain 'snake' remains afterwards. So, while the pitch shortens up to go with new sprockets, the chains will still flex too much sideways putting extra wear on the roller flanges. Something to consider.

Re: Banjo style fittings

Hi,

Maybe the PO did something there. Like you, I don't know why they'd just up and start leaking all by their lonesomes.....

Re: Banjo style fittings

Hi, The hard steel parts have concentric ridges which crush that shaping into the soft copper washers. If you could exactly match the placement of the washer upon reinstall, it would seal. But, you can't ever get them back in exactly. So, they leak. The answer is to use fresh copper washers every ti...

Re: Does fuel filter need to be full

Hi,

Yeah, that'd be bad. Diesel thins the oil and it flies out between the rod bearing and the crank and....no more cushion. Not long after, beat up crank journal. After that, the best hope is the thing quits before the main bearings get it as well.

Re: Looking at a 450C anything to watch out for?

Hi, That doesn't look bad at all. Yes, the u/c is worn out. That is easy to see, but sounds like the rest of the machine is worth putting new u/c on. It might just need pins and bushings and sprockets. Measuring the rail height would tell, but I don't see where the bosses for the link bushings have ...

Re: Does fuel filter need to be full

Hi,

Needs to be full. Time to bleed it again. If it keeps happening, you need to find the source of the air leak.

Re: reverser oil flow question

Hi, Sounds like your oil is OK. I just had this sudden thought that you had an oil in there which likes to foam up, and shooting an air leak that doesn't really exist. Name brand stuff is good. And, using the same oil while troubleshooting is fine as long as you take some pains to keep it clean as y...

Re: Looking at a 450C anything to watch out for?

Hi, 450 HLR is a different beast than the 350 reverser. As far as F to R goes, you want the same easy transition on the 450 as the 350. But, it adds a High to Low, or Low to High shift the 350 does not have. That needs to be pretty quick, but not so much that it tends to lurch you out of the seat. T...
