Early Model 450C Parts Needed

Hi, I am looking for a good used transmission INPUT SHAFT for a JD 450C. I am also looking for a set of brake bands.

I have a brand new 11" Clutch disc and Pressure Plate for a 450C that I would like to sell.

Please let me know if you have anything OR know someone that does.

Mark, thank you my friend for the help and advice. By the looks of things I am going to hit these issues one at a time not only because this looks like a huge job but it also looks like a bunch of money. I am going to get the main clutch done first and then start on the rear. I am going to try and d...

OK, Now I really need some advice. I am posting a picture of a mirror that shows a weep hole next to the hyd hose and this is where my leak is. I am assuming it is the piston seals like Mark was talking about? My question is does the sprocket assy need to be disassembled and the steering clutch drum...

I am trying to post a few picts and have determined that it is a task to do on this web but will give it a shot and thought I would post some more as I go. This (if works) just shows how full the brake compartment is of fluid and was wondering if anyone thought it would be OK to pressurize the port ...

Well after abit of further inspection I think (like Mark suggested) the trans pump may be weeping a bit of oil that is causing a bit of gunk build up on the clutch. So it appears that if I pull the bell housing off that this would be fairly accessible? Is this a pretty easy fix and would anyone reco...

Thanks Mark, like said though I really don't see a bunch of oil just a bunch of nasty greasy residue. THe disc and flywheel seem coated with a greasy type of material but it for sure could have a small leak that mists to create this gunk. I think I will look into a seal and brg like you said just as...

Hello JD friends. I hope everyone had a great Xmas! Just an update....after a bit of OSB and a few short 2x4's to repair garage door I got the ol 450 in the garage and I just finished pulling the clutch. I must say I was a bit disappointed but I did find a great coating of heated grease/oil and that...

Hey Drloch, I greatly appreciate your inquiring! I had a huge setback that is a bit embarrassing but what the heck, I did not get injured to bad :oops: As you know very well I am pulling in the crawler because the clutch is out, and after a bit of work I managed to get it in front of my garage to cl...

Yes sir I can (I hope:) Please keep in mind that most of this is from memory from about 3yrs ago and the rest is from just this week. Back when I was using the unit I remember that the left steering was getting weak and the left lever was feeling like there was nothing there. You know how when you p...

Hey Doc, I hope I was not misleading when I said the machine had not been run for a long time!! I did go out at least 2-3 times a year and start it and warm the engine. I should have said "used" it in a long time. Also I think I mentioned this before but the crawler will move when it is cold so Satu...
