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

Yes I agree the u/c is 100% worn. It may be fine for light use around the house but always have the tools on hand to put the tracks back on!

Re: Wanted, Head light guards

I made 2 pairs for mine. Some 3/8”x3” for the bottom plate. 1/8”x3 bent to go around the light and some 3/8” solid round to protect the front of the light. Cheap bill of materials to fabricate if you have the tools to do so.

I took a picture of the filter I installed, it is on the return line going into the hydraulic tank. Image

Re: 350 B Track

That price is per side not for a pair! I priced pads, chain, sprocket ring and nuts/bolts about a month ago and the cheapest I could find for a straight 350 was 1638.32 a side.

Nice looking 350c stan. There nothing better than a dozer with new paint and straight sheet metal on it!

Re: 6 volt change to 12 volt

I believe this is the part number I installed on my 420. http://www.jegs.com/i/Pertronix/751/1123/10002/-1

The pertonix part number is 1123 for a negative ground system. It’s been running perfect for years on my 420.

Re: Hydraulic line 420

Ahh I misspoke. I had to go up in the barn to look where I placed my spin on filter and it wasn’t on the suction side of the pump. It was on the return line to the tank. Whoops!

Re: Hydraulic line 420

Also if you install a new metal suction line it is a great place to install a spin on oil filter for the hydraulic system!

Re: how to paint a crawler

When I painted my 420 years ago I removed the tracks by putting the crawler in wooded cribbing. Masked off the square tubing that the undercarriage mounts to and spray it yellow!

Re: 40 c hydraulic valve

VERY IMPORTANT! if you change the valve you have to set the factory relief pressure to around 950 psi. Most new valves have a minimum relief pressure of 1500. And if you set it at that pressure you will destroy the pump. Most likely you will have to buy a lower pressure relief valve and plumb it in ...

Re: Nice knowing you-all!

Hey Stan! I wish you and yours the best thru the storm. There’s a lot of prayers being said for all of those in it’s path. I liked you comment about Johnstown, PA especially since I live on the outskirts of “flood city”. We actually had 3 floods, 1936, 1977 and 1889. I don’t remember much of the 77 ...

Re: 8a gearmatic winch drum removal

If I remember correctly those 2 bolt are used to connect something onto it to help pull the drum out. I remember making a bracket of some sort to connect to a large slide hammer that didn’t work too well.
