IC trans is different and weaker than ICD trans.
Thanks B Town. Didn't know that.

Re: 2-53 swap into a gas 440 worth it?

Lavoy-- why will the Detroit eat the transmission? Didn't the 440 use the 2-53 as an option originally? I personally like those noisy 2 stroke Detroits. Lot of power for their size.

Re: trouble steering 350 straight

I like a success story. My 350B has been down since summer. Only driving with the left track and would really like to have used it a couple days ago when we got 41" of snow. Buried both my plow trucks and had to use a little 1620 4x4 Ford with a front bucket loader to clear my 1/2 mile driveway.

Re: Leaking injectors

I understand that you were building pressure due to the vent problem but, where was the fuel actually leaking?

Re: Leaking injectors

Could it be the connections where the fuel line connects to the injectors? Seems like those round connectors are soldered to the fuel line and if they get tweaked while installing or removing, they will leak.

Re: Leaking injectors

Does the machine run as it should? Is there a check valve on the return line that may be faulty?

Re: stuck motor

Don't forget by forcing the grease into the cylinder, you're putting pressure in all directions in there and could force something to give(move) that you don't want to.

Re: 350B Brake Adjusting Bolt Seized

I don't remember for sure but are there a couple bolts underneath from the inside out?

Re: trouble steering 350 straight

Sounds to me that the clutches are releasing but the brakes are not holding. Might be adjustment, worn out brake bands(lining gone), or the brake bands are glazed over and not gripping. I agree with Leonardl, try adjusting.

Re: 350 fuel problem

That's a lot of questions. A steady stream coming out of pump-NO. I believe the pump is the same as a gas engine distributor. It is how the cylinders are timed to fire. Fuel should come from one at a time and the pressure will force the injector open. The "check valve " needs to be there. I'm assumi...

Re: trouble steering 350 straight

With info from the manual and the guys on this forum, I'd say yes. Most anyone with a decent set of tools and common sense, can probably handle the job.

Re: stuck motor

If the engine won't break free after soaking with penetrating fluid and trying to crank it over with the starter, force is needed. Using force, like a block of wood, will usually break it free but, the key word there is break. You can damage the top of the piston and, more likely, break the lans and...

Re: stuck motor

After soaking the cylinders with PB blaster and the engine won't break loose using the starter, I feel the best way is to tear it down. After removing the crank, I use a block of wood to drive the pistons down and out. Clean the cylinders, piston, and etc. Do the appropriate measurements and get the...
