Re: 450b Undercarriage rebuild and steer clutches

I was thinking only of the manual itself. You are in a part pricing screen, and they will often times shows specs and are usually correct.

Re: 450b Undercarriage rebuild and steer clutches

Parts catalog does not give specs on thickness, only service manual. Service manuals are not available to search for free, must be purchased.

Re: 450b Undercarriage rebuild and steer clutches

90% of the new steel clutch discs listed for the B model are actually for the straight 450. The sellers are either lying or don't know, or don't care. Metallic discs were not original equipment, some one has put them in as a replacement for the standard discs. Doesn't mean they won't work, just not ...

Re: So What Happens To the Tooling?

What was told to me by a tour guide at the Deere foundry many, many years ago was that Deere has all of the patterns for all the parts stored somewhere. He also claimed that they would tool up a piece if someone needed it. Now my assumption is that he was incorrect at least on the last part, or at l...

A&I products and alternate Deere part numbers

This came up in another forum, but wanted to post it here as well.
If you search your parts on Deere's website and an alternate number comes up with an A prefix, those are usually A&I part numbers. I am an A&I dealer and can source those parts faster and cheaper than the dealers can normally.

Re: Leak around base of injector nozzle on 350 crawler

FYI, in the case of the alternate part numbers, I am an A&I dealer, and get parts from them overnight with no additional charge. Plus, I can usually beat the dealers price as well.

Re: John Deere 350b reverse problems

Something is broken, only way to tell what is to pull the top off the transmission and find out what it is, or eliminate it as a source, all else is just wild guess, and the more you try to diagnose without tear down, the higher the repair bill will likely be.

Re: Starter Issue 1952 MC Crawler

Often times on 12 volts they are so violent as they spin up that the starter drive won't engage. Dumb as it sounds, it happens. These starters do not like a steady diet of 12 volts, and will eat themselves or the ring gear or both eventually. Other problem that causes this is drive binding on the ar...

Re: Fuse blows when lights turned on.

20 amp is the biggest fuse you want to put in there.
Problem is most likely a short somewhere in the wiring, the lights them selves, or the switch itself. Just need to work your way through the system til you find it.

Re: Starter Removal 1952 MC Crawler

Battery box needs to be removed, or at least slid back slightly to give clearance for the starter.
