Re: 1010/350 winch

From what I have heard from people over the years, expect to put $1000-$2500 in the winch to make it serviceable.

Re: 1010/350 winch

You will need winch drive shaft, not PTO shaft. I do not see a controller in the pic, winch is useless without it. I am guessing that is why the price is what it is.

Re: 1966 straight 350

15W-40 diesel oil, assuming you have a diesel. If you like synthetic, then 5W-40 like Rotella T6.

Correct on the filter. I normally use diesel or kerosene to flush.

Re: Major incident at work today!

Sucks to be them, but life is hard, harder when you are stupid. Lack of courtesy is really disappointing, and I would have done the same thing you did, it is just a matter of principal.

Re: LGP tracks and then some

When you drain the oil, leave the plug out for a while and watch to see if you get any antifreeze draining out the next day. Not always a good test, but have had it work.

Re: To buy or not to buy

I would think tracks, crossbars and extensions should be worth about what you paid for the crawler. Almost impossible to find good ones any more.

Re: Backhoe Fitment on 1976 JD450C

First you need to determine if your crawler is set up as a hoe crawler. Unless you have the large pump, the bypass valve, and the hoses on the back of the crawler that run the hoe, it is not just an issue of finding a hoe. As far as the Case hoe, I highly doubt it is a direct interchange with Deere....

Re: Plasma cutters

I don't use mine that often, but I do use it, and they are handy. My advice to anyone is to get a 5/8" or bigger rated machine. What they rate them as is "sever", so deduct 1/8" or so, and that is what they will cut slowly. I've got a 60 amp, would really like an 80 amp.

Re: 450b Undercarriage rebuild and steer clutches

$800 for a pair of sprockets and turning the pins and bushings seems awfully cheap to me, I would make sure somebody didn't miss something there.
