Re: Jd 350 track loader pressurized gear box!?!?!

Hi, Well, milky fluid is water emulsified with the oil. While that is bad in and of itself, I can't think of why that alone stopped it moving. Well, could have lunched a bearing, gear or shaft I suppose. That ought to have made some noise, though. It coming out can be due to it getting hot and the w...

Re: 350 B brake band

Hi, 303 marked oil isn't a good idea any more. What you want is a tractor transmission, gear and hydraulic fluid. Deere's own brand is HyGard, which is what I use. There are less costly brands, of course. Read the label, though. You want something that lists J14 (letter unimportant for your need) un...

Re: 450B transmission

Hi,

Yeah, the plates get whacked. Or, get gone. At least with a whacked one we can eventually figure it out! :)

Re: 450B transmission

Hi, You sure about that serial number. As in the last digit is a 1 and not a T. It ought to end with a T. Plus, you have a leading 0. That makes me think you have a 1968 Straight 450. The collar shift trans also makes me think you have a straight 450 and not a B. If the serial started with a 7 it wo...

Hi, No watches, no rings, no chains, no long-sleeves, safety glasses, long pants and steel toe boots. Oh, and also no neckties! Lucky that the watch didn't fry your hand right off. I have seen that happen with batteries and watches. The good news in that case was the hand fried off before the batter...

Re: Update on my Health

Hi, I have been thinking about you lately, wondering how you were getting on. So, thank you for the update. I know it is much harder to talk about these things when they are not good than when it is good news. I really hate the news regarding the logger. That is akin to salt in the wound, as it were...

Re: Replacement loader hyd pump setup, 420-440

Hi,

Sounds like a great plan to me. Seems as if there has been quite a few pump issues lately. As time marches on, we are going to see more issues, not fewer.....

Re: Locate by Area

Hi, It doesn't exist as the board is set up. It could be added. Need to enable it in the 'search by custom profile' field. If you hit 'members' in the 'board index' field at the bottom of any page, you will see all the data fields in the members list. The location field is there. Near the top is 'fi...

Re: Recommendations for Hydraulic Fluid

Hi, J20A was superseded by J20C and J20B by J20D back in 1989. Deere specs the viscosity of J20C as ISO 42-68 and J20D as ISO 32. I don't have a need for Low Vis here in NC, so I don't know how it varies in viscosity, but I can say that I have noticed where some pails of regular HyGard are a bit thi...

Re: Recommendations for Hydraulic Fluid

Hi, Um, yeah. Well, you are using only in the hyd part and three of the specs match up. Maybe it falls in between viscosity so they toss that fourth one in there..... It ought to be OK. In my older stuff, the M and the 420, I use Warren R+O hydraulic oil. They are happy with that. As Lavoy points ou...

Re: Recommendations for Hydraulic Fluid

Hi, He wants it in a separate hydraulic system. He is not using it in trans or finals. So, he has to see if what they have meets Deere standard J14(any letter) or J20A or C. If it does, it will be fine. If it does not, then we can say it is no good. Looking at several AW46 offerings online, some mee...

Re: Recommendations for Hydraulic Fluid

Hi, That will probably do it. AW means Anti Wear and 46 is the ISO viscosity you want given the temperature range you mentioned. AW32 is probably too thin. Anti Wear means they have those additives. The other common one is R+O for Rust and Oxidation. The final main additive is an Anti Foam one, but ...

Re: Recommendations for Hydraulic Fluid

Hi, We were just talking about 303 in a thread over in the Early forum. It hasn't existed in decades, since the early 70s. The original J14(303) formulation used oil from the sperm whale. That is where the number 303 came from. That became illegal, so it was reformulated several times and became HyG...

Re: Recommendations for Hydraulic Fluid

Hi, I would opt for HyGard myself, but that said go to a generic tractor supply store and get some ISO 46 weight oil that matches at least the J14A specification. That ought to cost less than oil that meets the J20A or J20C (standard viscosity HyGard, J20B and J20D are low viscosity HyGard) specs. T...

Re: 40C vs 420C hyd pump

Hi, Yes, if you add a filter it needs pressure to make it work properly. So, the return line is where it would need to go. On the 440, the valve is behind the dash and I can see adding one without too much trouble. On the 420, the valve is atop the tank and looks to me like a PIA to deal with plumbi...
