Re: Looking to buy a 350B

Given what you said about wanting to buy, fix up, and resell, I have a question or two. Are you looking at buying that crawler for say $3000, putting at minimum $5000 in parts in it plus you labor, and then sell it for a profit? What if the reverser is out, isolator bad, trans bad, then add another ...

Re: Alternator or Generator

I would add that my 440 is on 12 volts, and I will be rebuilding the starter to 12 volts. For me, sooner or later I am going to be forced to start it well below zero in the middle of a blizzard to move snow, or dig the groomer out of a ditch some place, so I need the reliability of the 12 volts for ...

Re: Looking to buy a 350B

Without some concrete information as to what is wrong or not wrong with it, it's already at what I would pay for it.

Re: Alternator or Generator

I would go back to completely stock, or 12 negative ground alternator conversion, 10SI or Denso. I have mounting kits available for the 10SI, bolts right on. The Denso is smaller, might fit under the hood better, that is what I have on mine.

Re: 350B dozer no power

The power steering is just a booster cylinder, it won't affect the mechanical function. I seriously doubt that the problem is external unfortunately.

Re: Brake band dragging on a 450()

On 40 or more year old machines, the book specs do not always work out due to accumulated wear and other issues. As Leonard says, I adjust to function, not necessarily what the book says on those occasions.

Re: lubricating my undercarriage on my 40C

No need for low pressure gun on a 3 roller, but the guns I have are also high volume which works great for 3 rollers.
Get the stickiest heaviest grease you can find.

Re: JD 350b weights

Our B model with sprocket weights, and belly weight weights 12,250lbs. Add for 4 in 1 and extra weights, but still a positioning issue I feel. If I load forward enough on my trailer, like when I put two crawlers on, I can't imagine that I could hardly spin out in 2 wheel drive let alone 4 wheel driv...

Re: JD 350b weights

Whatever weights you can take off will not be a big factor in going up the hill. Seems to me traction is the issue, not weight so to speak. Even if you could get 1500lbs off the tail, is that really enough lighter to make a difference. I would load the crawler farther ahead to get more traction on t...
