Re: Gauge sending units locations

Not every detail is written in manuals. You have to remember the manuals, especially technical ones are written for the dealer mechanics who have worked on equipment and may have had manufacturer training as well. If you don't have the factory training the manuals stink; very inadequate. Better tha...

Thanks for the replies. I hate searching for parts. I hate buying parts. :(
Searching for parts makes my head hurt. Buying parts is worse, because it makes my head and my wallet hurt. Installing the parts makes my back hurt.

Re: 450B problem

These Stanadyne pumps are a complicated mess inside, and it's not hard to imagine that an air bubble somewhere inside would cause havoc.

Re: Model Identifacation and part number for cylinder seal kit

You're going to have to take the cylinder apart anyway ... why not now, and measure the orings? The $50 kit is probably nothing but $5 worth of orings.

Re: The Kendall Diaries - Overview

Stan, if you take the document to some place like Kinkos, they can scan it for you and give you a PDF file you could post here. They could break it up into several files so that none of the parts are too big to email or upload.

Re: Dumped my hydraulic fluid, am I damaging my pump?

Thanks for the part number, JimB. I'll try to get something suitable for the use eventually, but for now I have a chunk of radiator hose that kind of fit. I'm setting myself up for the exact same problem to happen again, of course. I'll try to get about a yard of the good stuff from Alaska Rubber an...

Be sure you get hose rated for oil service. Plain straight radiator hose (not rated for oil service) will work for a bit but will most likely fail.
Jim, that is almost surely why this one failed.

Re: Dumped my hydraulic fluid, am I damaging my pump?

I got the pump off and the loader moved out of the garden. The pump is right up front, below and in front of the radiator. The four 5/8 head bolts holding the suction hose in place were hard to access, and I had to use a 5/8 stubby to access the bottom ones. The 3/4 head bolts holding the pump on we...

The Chinooks are based 100 miles away. I'll put out some feelers, but that idea probably won't fly.

Re: Dumped my hydraulic fluid, am I damaging my pump?

Sounds as if I better look for a new pump, or look for a way to disconnect this one. The backhoe outriggers can't lift the back of the machine, so I think the pump is weak. Maybe the new pump idea isn't crazy. The machine is sitting above a little ridge of dirt and crud, high enough underneath that ...

Dumped my hydraulic fluid, am I damaging my pump?

I just tore or blew out the hydraulic return hose under the belly of my 450C, and dumped all the hydraulic oil in the garden. I need to get the machine out of the weeds and back onto solid ground. I think that I can back drag out of there with the bucket down. Am I going to mess up my hydraulic pump...

Re: 450C how to bar over engine?

Why did you not remove the nose of the loader? I think people are sometimes make it out in their minds to be much harder than it actually is. I can have mine off in less than 15 minutes. Now dozer guys, they have real nose removal problems -_- I didn't have any way to lift the snout off over the lo...

Hi,

There is an actual Deere tool to drive the ring gear with a ratchet. I have a couple different ones. Worth getting.

Stan
Stan, do you have a part number for that tool? The few JD tools I've seen on fleabay have been priced for collectors, not for use.
