Re: Banjo style fittings

Generally your suppose to replace the cooper seal when it's been taken apart. I've go an old Ferguson with a 23C Diesel that I have to replace a lot of those cooper washers when I did a rebuild. Found the cooper seals on fleabay.

Re: 1977 JD 450c Loader has no power in reverse

You need to redo the clutch valve adjustment procedure correctly. If you seen 180 PSI you should not have to add anymore shims. Do yourself a favor and print off all the pertinent information that you need to do this adjustment procedure correctly, all the information has been provided in this post....

Re: 1977 JD 450c Loader has no power in reverse

Do not soften the shifts with the pressure adjustment You adjust the speed shift with the needle valve accessed through the side of the transmission, not by lower the clutch pressure. That pressure is needed to keep the clutches clamped up, no different than the automatic transmission in you car. I...

Re: 1977 JD 450c Loader has no power in reverse

Depending on if its a normal shift or fast shift, and the accumulator dumping, it always should return to high pressure and just vary in time.
Correct. My guess would be that the clutch pack seals are leaking, internally.

Re: 1977 JD 450c Loader has no power in reverse

The clutch free play should be ~ 3-3/4" - 4" before the throwout bearing touches the clutch fingers. The penny is used to shim the relief, each one is good for about 10 - 12 lbs. You can go find the correct shims if you want, but most just leave the pennies in there, makes the value of the machine g...

Re: Low track power

Hi, No, they aren't the same. The 350 uses a hydraulic reverser without an engine clutch. The 450 uses the High/Low/Reverse transmission behind a standard engine clutch (which is suspect in this case). The machine is a Straight 450 so the steering clutches are dry disc with spring pressure plates. ...

Re: 450G starting issue

Have you changed/checked the filter? Mine is between the lift pump and inlet of IP. Loosen and/or remove line feeding IP, press handle on lift pump to make sure you have a good flow of fluid. Only other thing would be that the IP pump outlet pressure is low when it gets hot which would mean the head...

Re: Fan belt on a 450()

I believe I used a 5/8 belt when I replaced my water pump and fan. Also, I put 2 additional around the jack shaft going to the pump so if I shred another belt I have another ready to go.

I drained the tank and flushed it out with mineral spirits and blew out the going to the lift pump. Refilled the tank, loosened the fitting at the inlet of the injector pump and pumped leve...

Re: 1977 JD 450c Loader has no power in reverse

Yes, 1/8" NPT. Mine was a bear to get out. Stripped the hex out, had to remove valve and drill it out and re-tap. Not my write-up. I got it from a number of posts from Roy and I've hung onto the information. Mine needed to be adjusted because I was having the same issues you are having now. Good luck.
