Air Cleaner Cup

My 440ICD needed an air cleaner cup as well. Like Brad, I looked for a long time and finally found an entire air cleaner. If I recall, it came from Arkansas. My old cleaner was pretty beat up so I just replaced the entire unit. I think the only thing I saved from my old one was the cup clamp.

Drott for 440

I found this bucket locally. They state if came off a 1010 machine. Anyone know if this will fit a 440? I have not seen many of these but the support in the middle seems odd but looks original. Image

JD 350

Going to go look at a 350B, anything specific I should be looking for in terms of issues for 350's? I have a 440ICD but I thought I recall reading that 350's have some issue with bolts coming loose and causing some major issues. I searched around a little and could not find any postings on this topi...

Lavoy: Thanks. The ridge is 3/16" thicker....The track will ride up on that, wow. I will reshim the idler while it is off the machine to make sure the idler is running true and reinstall. Getting this on and off is really no big deal. I do know the track frame is in pretty good shape. Not bent and I...

OK, remeasured all the alignment and while not exactly the same as the good side, it is VERY close. I split the track and removed the idler. I think I found the problem. The alignment must have been bad for along time and the idler is worn such that there is a large thickness ridge on the idler. Wit...

Lavoy: Thanks. I was starting to worry about this as well since when I took the machine off the jack stands and drove it back to the shed, the alignment changed a little. That involved some turning so that was not a good test. The plan now is to repeat all the alignment measurements to make sure I d...

Thanks for the information. I will recheck all the track frame measurements to see if I missed something relative to the frame alignment. I will also recheck the alignment relative to being centered on the sprocket.

Thanks for the clarification. Based on my attempts yesterday, adding or removing shims does not seem to change the alignment and I added and removed a lot of shims (10). I worked boths side independently. Idler is still touching the track links on the outer side. I did all this with the machine on j...

No Luck

Ok, spent the day trying to fix this alignment issue, no luck . :( Measured the track alignment on both sides and as best as I can tell, they are both the same. I also looked at the upper support idler/roller and the clearances to the track looks good. Sprocket also does not show any excessive wear....

Lavoy: Thanks. I will check this out. I recall making sure the sprockets were centered relative to the frames when I did my rebuild but will recheck everything. The right side track seems to run true so I am hoping this is a left side only alignment. I think I will just jack the machine up and align...

Thanks Lavoy. How is that done? Is there a specific point to measure and adjust? I do not see anything in the manual except removing shims.

440 Idler Wheel Alignment

Have not posted in a while but my 440 ICD has been pretty healthy since my rebuild. Was using it today to skid trees out from a December ice storm in NY, what a mess. I am having one small isssue. Getting significant wear on the left side of my left side idler wheel. I was looking at the manual to a...
