Re: 350B dozer no power

It'll be a bit before I can get it in the shop but I'll probably be buying , at least, the fiber discs for the right side. If I get real ambitious, I'll do the left side too.

Re: Alternator or Generator

I'd go with the 6 volt using a positive ground. I think that' what it would have been originally. You'll need a voltage regulator also.

Re: 350B dozer no power

Thanks guys for your input. Looks like I'll have to bite the bullet and tear this thing down. I'll have to clear some shop space and get it done. I may need some parts from Lavoy if they're available. I'll let you all know what I find. gregjo1948

Re: 350B dozer no power

Hi, Sounds like the steering clutch pack has failed. I had that happen once on my 420. It went all at once with a screeching noise. New fiber discs were all it needed. They just got to be too thin. Stan Thank you for the reply but, I must say, you're not a lot of fun. I've been into the steering cl...

350B dozer no power

Working a 350B about 5 minutes and the right track started slipping. Within about 2 more minutes, the right side wasn't pulling at all. It was a dead track forward or backward. The right clutch/brake was functional but that was all. Left side was working as it should .I was able to get to the shop b...

Re: Dumped my hydraulic fluid, am I damaging my pump?

Do you or a neighbor have a large enough tractor to pull/push the loader home? If so, one with a front bucket would be good to lift and block the hoe, outriggers, and front bucket. I could probably pull it with my old Dodge Ram but I doubt that Ford or Chevy could do it. :lol:

Re: Dumped my hydraulic fluid, am I damaging my pump?

Running a hydraulic pump dry can damage it. I'm not sure if there is a separate reservoir for the power steering or if that will be affected also. I'd try to remove the pump or at least disconnect the pump drive. I'm not sure about a 450C but my 350B has a lever at the front of the crankshaft that i...

Re: JD 350b weights

Measure the bumper height, load the machine on forward and measure again. Then, load it on backwards and measure . The lower the bumper--the more traction.

I would guess at 6- 6 1/2 tons.

Re: Bought another 1010

Biggest downfall on the diesel 1010, in my opinion, is hard starting. It's not recommended to use starting fluid as it can break the top piston rings. Good idea to use the fuel primer and glow plugs. I think I'd install a block heater if you can reach it with electricity.

Re: JD 350 vs 1010

I think the rollers can be made to work and if the sprockets rings are welded on the chains will work. Jim and/or Lavoy will know all about this subject.

Re: Saving transmission oil?

Seem like 15/40 is too heavy for hydraulics and wouldn't stand the heat either. Although, diesel engines , I think, put more pressure on the oil because of the higher compression which would probably put more pressure at the bearings. The more pressure---the more heat too. Does that make sense?

15/40 is a diesel engine weight oil.

Re: Starter

Try going to your local rebuilder to see if he can solve the problem correctly, before you end up stranded far from home in a mud hole and the starter is failing you. You could also check with Lavoy. (Owner of this site.)
