Re: City people, gotta love them, or laugh at them

We still have a J C Penney store in the Mall of Abilene. How much longer I don't know. A Sears in the north end and the J C Penneys in the south end. And a Dillards in between. K-Mart is gone. The old K-Mart building is going to be converted to the police dept and courts.

Re: Brocken bolts on clutch housing

Harbor Freight has a set of left hand bits, they are from the land of almost right so I do not know how good they are. Just a source not necessarily a reccomendation.

Re: 1010C Gear Shift Pattern

Probably a reverse lockout to prevent you from using a double reverse and trying to work the crawler while going forward. But it could be a hi-gear lockout also.

Re: Woman steals Bulldozer and Crashes into Building

Those are just operator modifications until they get to using worn fencing pliers and then they become farmer modifications.

Re: Track Adjuster installation

It is just me but I think this whole thread ought to be under early model crawler tab. I would worry about the new threads cut in the adjuster also.

Re: Daily Grind

We are supposed to get triple-digits for most of the next week, far to early in the season for that. Our predicted low for Sat. morn, is 70, far too hot. But at 5:00 the humidity was 23%. We will survive I guess, we are still under 5" of rain for the year also.

Re: 6 volt change to 12 volt

If you are changing from positive to negative ground or negative to positive ground and have an ammeter to indicate level of charge you will need to switch the wires on the ammeter. I have a MM M-670 that indicates discharge when actually charging. I know what is happening but it freaks others out. ...

Re: maximum degree of climbing, assent, descent

The first car seatbelts was about '66. My brother had a '67 Barracuda and the shoulder belts were totally separate from the lap belts. No belts without some kind of a cage or bar around you.

Re: Now have a 78 JD350C

Can the wheel tractors get in the shed from the back or do you have to move the crawlers every time you want a tractor? I guess you measured and It won't work with crawlers in one row and tractors in one row?

Re: 420 dozer for sale 5hours down the road

I thought all 20 series Deeres had yellow paint stripes on the sides of the hood. Do the timbers come with it? Winch is nice to have.

Re: 1980 JD 350C wont move

I have a 440ICD, never around a 350. Is there any sort of a top cover or other plate you can remove to see in the transmission before taking the crawler all apart?

Re: JD 450C radiator issues

I would think that line was to allow the water pump to circulate water in the block before the water was hot enough to open the thermostat. With no thermostat it would not make much difference. If you install a thermostat you will need that circulation to prevent hot spots in the block.

Re: Random Musings

Amos Wait til you get a little older and CRS starts kicking in, finding tools is a real joy then. You could send a little of that rain out here to near Abilene. I could sell you these three 440ICs I have collected. That could keep you busy a while. I am 77 and starting to think about thinning the he...
