Re: Fuel wont Bleed after Fuel Filter replacement

Hi, The fuel is obviously blocked. My first thought was the same: old gasket didn't come out and now there are two. One is probably blocking the inlet port of the number two filter. Fuel passes from the outside to the inside and the passage is part of the filter housing and pretty close to the gaske...

Re: Banjo style fittings

Hi,

Probably caused by Bad Vibrations from my 420c because it has to share shed space with the upstart, younger, 350C!! :P

Re: Ripper shank source?

Hi, Yup. I do the same thing. The one I use stock orders on a daily basis anyway. Actually, they usually have what I need in one of their 14 locations and so that gets me the part tomorrow. If they have to add it to their stock order, sometimes it is in tomorrow and sometimes the next day, depending...

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

Hi,

Ah. I was thinking of a different machine, a 350 dozer, with lots of rust and worn out loader tracks. These are dozer ones, of course.

Looking at the pics again, yes, they look like sealed rollers.

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

Hi, Edit: never mind me. I had images of a different machine in my head. This one has sealed rollers and dozer tracks. Weight still wrong, though. Maybe 8600 pounds after you blasted away the dirt which was holding the rust in place..... :P No, that can't be right. This is a 4 *50* , not a 4 *40*. ;...

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 ...

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.
