420, 430, 440, 1010 pins and bushings coming

Just got my quote back on pins and bushings for 420-early 2010. Limited run this go around, about 7 sets, 4 are already sold. I have some room to increase production this run, but will only do so on sold orders. If you want a set, let me know by the end of this week, April 3, 2020. I was able to get...

Re: 6 wy blade rebuild

Almost all older Deere hyd stuff is Deere, not off the shelf. You will find very limited parts availability for any blade or loader from Deere on the older stuff.

Re: 420c throwout bearing

I normally stock the service manual, if not, short delay to order. I would get a parts manual too, way handier than trying to get the info off the internet when you are standing next to the crawler.

Re: 1010 Crawler Foot Brake

Bill needed some additional manuals that I did not have ready access to, and a couple of them, I do not like the quality of, so I will not sell them. For basic 1010 manuals, not an issue. I do not have any on hand right now, they come with my regular order, so no issue to get.

Re: 420c throwout bearing

Something is screwed up, nothing you will be able to repair from the outside. Two quick guesses are previous owner never set the pressure plate fingers with the gauge, or damage to the throwout tube and associated. My other guess is that 'Did both clutches" might mean a single part replaced, not com...

12 volt starter conversion for 2 cylinder crawlers

Working on my first starter converting to 12 volts from 6 volts. Going to build one and test it in my 440 to make sure I like the results. If I'm happy with the way it turns out, I will order enough parts to do several more. A couple of you have asked me about it, and finally getting to the point of...

Re: j440ic new 6 blade fan

Bolts on around carb and goes between exhaust manifold and the water manifold, look in your parts book. Running without is can give false reading at the temp gauge due to the manifold heat.

Re: JD450C third head gasket This is getting old

As prelubed as you are, make sure the throttle is at idle and spin it over. You don't have any fuel in the injector lines, and can't bleed them without spinning it over, it will be pushing oil around long before it starts.

Re: how to chain up a dozer blade

Hold the hyd lever back, leave the rams in place, lift the blade up to where you want it, let off the hyd lever, chain around where the cylinder pins in to the blade on one side and you are good to go.

Re: j440ic new 6 blade fan

Check temp with infrared thermometer to make sure reading is accurate?
Does the engine have the heat shield in place, that will lead to false reading on the temp gauge.

Re: i bought a 1010C loader

Counterweight brackets and hoe mounts are visually identical until you look at the bracing that goes forward to the frame. Unless your crawler has a swivel seat, a diverter, and a pair of auxiliary hoses on the back of the crawler on 1" hyd line, I highly doubt it is a hoe crawler, and the counterwe...
