Re: 440 Track Frame repair

Thanks guys.

Ben, the dozer came with this 420 throttle lever from the past owner. It works well so I kept it like this up to now. I have a spare dash plate and everything to put it back original. It is going to be one of the winter's project!

Re: 440 Track Frame repair

After both track frames were ready to install, removal of the old ones began. The previous owner had all the crossbar flanges welded to the track frames... https://i.imgbox.com/Ztsu0s2J https://i.imgbox.com/b60V8Zvw One done https://i.imgbox.com/14nxvxeh I had a hard time trying to install the bolts...

Re: 440 Track Frame repair

Nice rebuild! Good job. What photo sharing website did u use? Thanks! I used www.imgbox.com It is free and easy to use. This photobucket "offer" is bad... One has to re-link everything again for each thread or let it go. Show & tell is my favorite on here as we can see other's good work on their ma...

Re: 420c undercarriage rollers

Last time i checked, deere prices were high for those bushings and seals. Price of bottom rollers has exploded. I bought one in 2010 from deere and it was around 250$. The same roller number today is around 540$!! I just rebuilt the 2 side frames on my 440 and i thought i would only need 3 rollers. ...

Re: re..jd440 ic....edit battery 12volt

Does someone know the resistance of a 6 V starter armature Or have one on hand and can measure it. I would validate what i have then (3 starters on hand). Thanks!

Personnaly I use Caterpillar bolts. All grade 8. I like the fact that they have this nice catalog where i can list all I need for a project. They are a bit expensive though. You can order them at your local cat dealer. http://www.finning.com/content/dam/finning/en_ca/Documents/Parts/one%20safe%20sou...

Thanks as well mini kahuna. Your advice as well as Lavoy's made me decide to go on with a rock guard fix and install. A lot of work! I will probably put a "show & tell" thread about this repair since the board looks more stable.

440- Crossbar to frame shim thickness

Hello, I have one side frame rebuilt and one more to go! Shim T10039T are not avalaible anymore from deere around here. I would like to know the thickness if possible so I can fabricate them.

Thanks Lavoy. I will. About the 10 spacer pipes... The id of the spacer pipe is .824 on jdparts.com. The original bolt that goes through it is 5/8. I Think i will install 3/4 threaded rod in there. Rock guard to track frame bolts are all 9/16 now from previous repair i guess. Some more work ahead.

Scottyb, thanks for your input. That s exactly why the dozer is in the garage this winter for. I don t want to throw a track off in the woods anymore... i will install them. Better work in the garage than in the mud trying to be back on tracks.

Thanks pop pop. If it helps guiding the rails i will install them otherwise it would be off to help self cleaning. Do you think roller flanges alone are not enough?
Thanks

I will install new rollers and hardware, paint them etc. I ve been told to not put the rock guards on because they just pack the mud, dirt between them and break bolts. Especially if they don t help to guide the chain, i m thinking about not installing them. What is your idea on that? I use the doze...
