Re: Moving a 3325 winch from a 450C to a 550B

PTO shaft slides right in like your 450.

Exact same mounting as the 450, so yes it will fit. Uses the same style control cable, might be longer. Control handle will work as well.

Re: 4.219D to 4.039T swap possible in 450B?

I’m shocked as you don’t have any 4-219’s available in your area. A 4-239 natural will be a power upgrade from a 4-219T. I have engines here in Edmonton Alberta but shipping would be offensive. Think I’m going to put a 276 in my 440B powershift skidder. Have to pull the engine to fix a major hydraul...

Re: Engine removal 450C

You do not need to pull the loader to pull the engine. You need to raise your loader and install a brace on a lift cylinder.

Re: 550G Torque Converter Leaking

I’ll let you know in a few months. Have the same issue on a 450G. We have the dozer and cab off it make it a bit easier. We plan to pull the whole engine and torque assembly and swap out the entire torque and convertor with one on hand from a machine that had an engine fire

Re: John Deere 440 icd advice

It will most likely be a cracked head. You should tell me where it’s at and I’ll check it out for you? Detroit’s are a very basic engine. 253 parts are getting hard to come by, the common parts with 353, 453, etc are all readily available. We used to sell a lot of Detroit engines, now maybe 1 or 2 i...

Re: John Deere 440 icd advice

If you pass on it and it’s close I would buy it. I’m in Edmonton area and always looking for machines to wreck and rebuild.

Re: Looking to buy a 350B

We shut down our utility construction business 4 years ago when my dad turned 70 and this keeps him busy in the shop. I only get out there 1 day a week now. We have lots of parts left over from machines we wrecked to rebuild our working machines. We have been consistently fixing, rebuilding and sell...

Re: 450C engine in 450B?

The only issues you run into are the intake plumbing into turbo. Otherwise it’s a direct bolt in. I would recommend going with a 4-239 which is the replacement for the 4-219. It has more torque and they start better. We did a 4-219 turbo to 4-239 swap in one of our yard use 450C loaders a few years ...

Re: Looking to buy a 350B

The undercarriage looks good to me based on the position of the idler. The undercarriage is most likely worth more than the current price. Has anyone priced out idlers lately? So if a guy wanted a 350, this would be a good parts machine to have on hand. These are loader pads with growers added on. I...

Are you looking for a PTO shaft or a winch drive shaft. Winch drive shafts should be readily available.

Re: 450C drive lagging then nothing

A C is more difficult to diagnosis vs a B as the steering clutches are operated by the same pump as the transmission. We start by checking the transmission operating pressures and adjust first. If pressures are poor can be many causes but we check the steering clutches for leaks first. From there we...

Re: 350B shifting problem

Try engaging your reverser then stepping on the clutch. At times the Tranny gears are not lined up to shift.

Re: 3325 winch

This would indicate the clutch portion is not releasing. You need the pull the cover and remove the clutch cover (left hand side when standing at back of your crawler) The clutch piston or discs will need servicing.
