Re: 440 "power plant"

Cooler is not necessary on a non turbo engine, and/or at these greatly reduced power levels. Are you running Delo 100 or equivalent oil? I can't see the 40 wt getting that thin even when warm.

Re: 1010C Info needed

They are normally available.
The pistons I think I have are .045, Deere only ever offered .020, so doubt it is worn that much.

Re: 1010C Info needed

Deere only as far as new. I might have a set of oversize piston if the deck is good enough to bore.

Re: Digging deaper into my Gearmatic 8a winch

I would replace any bearing that is in any way questionable, now is the time to do it.

Re: jd440ic cam pump

Filter has to go in return line, not suction. It will just exacerbate any air leak.

Re: new website design????

Nothing has changed for quite a while. You must have been getting in through an archived page or something.

Post moved.
I would have to believe that the location is in the service manual.

Re: 450B

I highly doubt conversion is even possible unless you take a part a C model and put all the parts in the older machine. It isn't just a function of the clutches running in oil, there is a lot more to it than that.
