rollers

There are 3 new rollers on an auction site (Auctions International) for sale. They're for a JD 450H but may fit others. They are in Genoa, NY and are at $115.00 for all three with six days left.

Re: 450C Track Adjustment

If the track is tightening up to where the tension is correct, don't worry about how much adjustment is remaining. Look at the front idler (wheel) front part of the slide mount to see the remaining rail left before it falls off. Not sure that will make sense to anyone!!!!

Re: 420C loader track

If you have a 420 and the machine the other chains are on is a 420, why haven't you swapped? My ? is; is yours a loader, a dozer or a crawler? If it's not a loader , why would you want "street" pads? Those pads have very little traction and are used on loaders to make steering, with loaded buckets, ...

Could it be a crack in the block between the cylinders?

I use double side by side ties on each track strapped with lag bolts. works great gives 8 more inches. plenty of room for jacks etc. on a 450C. 450 pan weighs about 150 lbs maybe.
I like to raise and block up the blade also, which makes rolling a floor jack under and rolling under on a creeper.

Re: 1010 Crawler loader diesel engine oil recommendations

You really should not use starting fluid on a 1010. It can cause expensive damage to the engine. If you feel you have to use it, start cranking first and add a very minimal spray. Don't forget the air and starting fluid are pulled thru an oil bath filter so, if you spray a lot of fluid, it will buil...

Re: Looking at a 350 B

Check for any separation between the reverser and the transmission. Check for loose or missing bolts between the finals and the rear end (steering clutch) housing. As always, check the wear on the track bushings and the sharpness of the sprockets. If it's drivable, check the distance you need to pul...

Re: Weighing out options--Which dozer should I buy? A 450, 450B, or a 350?

I don't remember if all the 350 series and 450 series machines have power assisted steering but, I would recommend trying to find one with it.

Re: Weighing out options--Which dozer should I buy? A 450, 450B, or a 350?

You can trail a 350 series with a pickup truck but the 450s are a bit too heavy. I'd go with the 350s with a reverser. The B started putting the reverser lever on the left arm rest/battery box rather than on the dash. Much handier.

Re: JD 450C loss of power when put in gear

Nor sure if your 450 has it or not but, the fitting coming out of the injection pump, on the return line, may be a check valve(one way valve). If it's faulty, the machine won't function properly.

Re: 440 crawler diesel engine installation

I don't remember ever installing an engine with the radiator already installed. Seems like an easy way to damage the radiator and there may not be enough room to clear the trans. input shaft.

350B changing gears

With the reverser in neutral, shouldn't I be able to shift gears? Also, with the reverser engaged either forward or reverse, shouldn't I be able to change gears with the clutch depressed? I'm getting a little grinding and don't know why. What's causing the gears to be moving in the trans. when there...

Re: 450 backhoe

Not sure what you're saying. Does the manual show diverting all hydraulic fluid/pressure to the hoe? That would leave the loader helpless, right? On my old Case 580B tire hoe/loader, I've been stuck and had to use the hoe and loader together to free the machine.

When my carb is all together the venture will not move, so I assume that it is sealing. I sent you a P.M.
Is it possible that the venture is installation direction sensitive? Upside down????
