Re: Why

Hi, Man. Now I feel even older. Not only am I still using Dad's 420c, I am also still using the Wright 5 CID saw he bought at the same time as the 420c in 1966. To be honest, I really haven't used the Wright much since I moved to NC in 1994. I don't burn wood here, so it sits on a shelf in the shop ...

Re: 440 "power plant"

Hi,

What I am vizualizing is a 2-53 plus bellhousing and clutch and then the reverser...that being what I think of as being forward of the transmission. That gets you crank speed and the ability to reverse the output shaft if you have the reverser.

Re: 3 Point on a MC

Hi, The M tractor had JDs own system, and the MC had a toolbar on the back. The 3-pt had been Furguson's patent, so only Ford had it until the patent expired. All the other makers had their own 'ours is the best!' schemes...until that patent expired....then they all changed over to the 3-pt. For us,...

Re: 450c new trans

Hi,

Yup. Heating and cooling causes breathing. Water enters as vapor during cooling, then condenses, and....never leaves.

Re: Guages for 350b - RPM guage direction

Hi,

I buy Stewart Warner gauges from the local racing/speed parts store. Most areas have them if not for racers, then for the street rod crowd. ;)

Re: thinking newer truck

Hi, The Dodge is a heavy 3/4 ton at 8800 gross and the Ford is a 1 ton at 10000 gross. Back in those years one had to go for at least a heavy 3/4 to get a Diesel. Personally, I steer away from any truck which doesn't sport a full floating rear axle. I have seen too many rear axle failures with semi-...

Re: thinking newer truck

Hi, A year ago I opted for a 99 Dodge with a Cummins Diesel for a second truck. This one being single rear wheels and a supercab versus my 97 Ford IH Diesel Dually with a crew cab. The Ford I bought new for hauling my race trailer literally all over the country. I have a permanently mounted service ...

Re: Why

Hi, Warning: Large Can. Contains Worms. Open With Care. And, I bet it is open now! :P The why?? for me is: My 420c can do things larger dozers can't and and can do things they can as long as I am not in a hurry. And, any size dozer can do things a tractor loader can't. Oh, I would go buy a brand new...

Re: 440 ICD trans oil drain and egine oil.

Hi, Sorry, I should have mentioned the trans drain was on the side of the bottom of the trans case and the one dead center on the bottom was the reverser plug. All I did say was don't get confused.... Reverser is full of hydraulic oil. It sits between the engine and the transmission and reverses the...

Re: 440 ICD trans oil drain and egine oil.

Hi,

The only engine oil to use is Delo 100. It has to be low ash, and this is all I know of which is these days. And, I only see it around here in 40 weight.

Yes, the plug on the bottom drains the trans. Don't confuse the trans drain plug for the reverser one. ;)

Hi, Lavoy runs the board as part of his parts business. Just edit the URL back to the end of the .COM and you will go to the home page. From there, you can click on the Parts tab and his phone number is in there with a parts list. Better yet, send him an email: postmaster@jdcrawlers.com as he has lo...

Re: Running Temp or Overheated

Hi, Yeah, water pumps came along on the 420. My 420 cap which is original is round, is rather large, has serrations along the edge for one's fingers and has writing stamped in it warning one that the thing is Pressurized. My 1950 M has a small cap with ears for one's fingers, no writing, and a hole ...
