Re: new website design????

Hi, Earlier this morning I was informed the the Host Name Did Not Resolve, and did I want to load from an archive. So, the DNS must have been in the middle of refreshing at that moment. Now, how long it might have been like that, I don't know. My browser asks in those situations. Others just go ahea...

Freezers!

Hi, No, not snow plowing on a crawler when it is Zero out there. :P I have two 20 Cu Ft upright freezers. Usually, we only run one and it is Cleverly Loaded. Meaning, packed to the gills. The other comes in handy when putting up stuff from the garden. Get it vacuum packed, load it into freezer two f...

Re: 350 B brake band

Hi,

Sounds like both clutch packs are releasing if the machine stops when both levers are pulled back. They are supposed to release before the brake bands engage the drums. If the left lever goes further back than the right, and it won't steer left as well, then you have a brake band issue.

Re: City people, gotta love them, or laugh at them

Hi, I know the area as a really good friend and ex-coworker lives in Oil City and has a weekend place at Henry's Bend on the Allegheny. And, I know about City folks with places up there also. Yeah, they call Oil City a city, but that ain't a City like we're on about. :P Anyways, City folks are alway...

Re: 1010C Gear Shift Pattern

Hi, Ah. That would explain it. I have used a few 1010 wheel tractors but not a crawler. The tractors were row-crop utility and essentially had the same 5-speed trans and finals as a 420w (or 430w or 435 diesel). The 420 and 440 crawlers I have used all had 5-speed trans, although I know some had 4-s...

Re: 1010C Gear Shift Pattern

Hi, The few 1010s I have been around used the same 5-speed trans pattern as the 420, 430 and 440: 2-1-4 N R-5-3 Did the 1010 get a different box at some point? Similar to the later 350 pattern, perchance? Which, is a 4-speed: R-1-3 N 2 4 So, on the 5-speed, the lockout bolt ought to be lower left. B...

Re: 450B

Hi, Dry clutches are fine as long as you keep the machine under a shed roof when you are not using it. While you are at it, the track chains will be happier if you keep some planks between them and the ground. My 420c dry clutches were last done back in 1998 and it only gets used a couple hours a mo...

Re: Track Adjuster installation

Hi,

The way I was reading it, he threaded the weep hole for a screw (because the ball is gone and the grease keeps weeping out). So, I am thinking those threads might wind up being too little against the possible pressure.

Re: Track Adjuster installation

Hi, I had this thought that the threads you cut might not be enough against the pressure of the grease if the thing sucks up a rock and tightens the chain such that the safety spring comes into play. In that case it might spit the screw out of the hole and then you'd have the track permanently slack...

Re: Track Adjuster installation

Hi, There is supposed to be a check ball in under the release screw which keeps the grease in until you turn the screw out a tad. Then, the grease is supposed to come out the weep hole. It is common for the release screw to be removed to get the grease out faster, and good-bye check ball. So, now th...

Re: Regular Hy-Gard or Low Viscosity Hy-Gard

Hi,

Something wrong there. I just bought a 5 gal pail. The Deere dealer list price is 77.08 and my dealer price is 70.28 for one pail. So, no quantity discount which would drop it a tad more.

Re: Woman steals Bulldozer and Crashes into Building

Hi, My old 2-cyl stuff has no keys. But they are safer because no one looking to use a key can figure out how they work. ;) The 350 uses a key, but has two starter buttons. So, there is a 50/50 chance they would use the one which blows the horn! :P Stan Edit: what I mean is that the horn button spor...

Re: 450c Ripper Mounts

Hi,

Loaders with the rear weights pull rippers with their style of tracks. I think more loader machines were equipped with rippers than dozer equipped ones, actually.
