Re: New - Just bought a JD 430

Still is either a fuel flow issue, or a carb problem.

Re: 3 roller support castings

The only prints if there are any would be in Deere's possession, and never available to the public.

Re: Machine Shop in Central Washington State

That's odd, not hard to do on a brake lathe. Find an old time shop if you can, that might help.

Re: Running a larger (78") Drott bucket on my JD350C?

Also increase stress on loader arms, front idler, track frame, etc. Not to mention the "twist" if you have one corner against something solid, as well as the added lift capacity in addition to the increased weight of a 4 in 1.

Re: Machine Shop in Central Washington State

Any auto shop should be able to cut them on a brake lathe.

Re: Best sourcing for new hydraulic cylinders?

There are no direct aftermarket replacement cylinders that I have ever known. If there are, they would be substantially higher than that. If I needed them, those you linked to would already be on the way to my house.

Re: 40c mod for 3 pt or 2 inch receiver?

Your crawler, your call, but my opinion is catastrophic failure with lots of hundred dollar bills on fire, and a lot of lost time trying. I have had multiple 3PT crawlers, and have seen first hand what they will wreck accidently, or due to stupidity on my part. Bracing to the arc piece or the draw p...

Re: JD450 steering clutch

I think you pretty much have it in a nutshell. Not a fun job, but just take your time, get help for the heavy stuff if you can.
Give me a call at 701-361-1006 if you have questions.

Re: 440ic Grinding on left when turning right.. PLEASE HELP

No track stop on 440's.
If it s grinding while just driving straight, bearings are likely out. The parts you may be destroying are probably about the same cost as renting a machine for a few hours.
If it stops when turning right, LH clutch is shot or out of adjustment, or oil soaked.

Re: 440IC with 602 Blade and Winch

When originally built, there were left and right clutch housings. In later years they figured out if you put holes in both sides, one housing covers two part numbers, so half the inventory to carry. Realistically, they should have just done this in the first place, would make life a lot easier for u...

Re: Tracks for 1952 MC crawler

Look at the pads, and there are two "slots" on the leading edge of the pad. They go over the part of the rail that would potentially hit the pad if they slots weren't there. Other than that, grouser on an MC is towards the rear if looking from the top, or the last to contact the ground if that makes...

Re: 440IC with 602 Blade and Winch

If all you are doing is the steering shaft bushings, no need to remove the housings.

Re: 450 Frame Question

Not sure if that is what is supposed to be there or not, but the theory is increases surface area on a load bearing bolt. Deere does exactly this on all of the two cylinder crawlers except for the 440 for the side frame to bellhousing bolt.

Re: 420c 5 roller undercarriage specifications

If pulling the RH lever stops the crawler, the LH clutch is out of adjustment or needs to be rebuilt.
