Re: John Deere 350b reverse problems

DO NOT MOVE the dozer under power, and tow it judiciously. Sounds like a bearing spun out in tranny. The fact that the gear shift locks up tells you it is not the reverser. Using it may shell out many gears, including ring gear and pinion.

Re: Clanking trans

Sorry, but the only thing I know that turns at the speed of the input shaft IS that shaft. It runs all the way to the flywheel, so the sound may be originating elsewhere. BTW, there are two revolutions of the input shaft for every "pop". Don't know why it doesn't change with 1,2, and R and is not th...

Re: New - Just bought a JD 430

Two things to check. Did you remove the input elbow from the carburetor and clean that screen? And did you open the load jet on the carb one quarter turn to see if that makes a difference?

Re: Clanking trans

Is the clanking related to ground speed or does it change with changing gears (in other words: Is it related to ring gear or transmission)? If it is related to ground speed then the problem is probably in the ring gear. If it changes with the gears it is probably transmission. If it is transmission ...

Re: 440ic Grinding on left when turning right.. PLEASE HELP

Assuming the left clutch/brake is properly adjusted it is probably the left clutch (slipping if it stops under load too). Back up to turn right to do your gravel and don't push heavy, but you are about to pull the left final and rebuild the clutch.

Re: Master link Pin JD 1010

As long as you can get the snap ring on it doesn't matter. However, the T-slot ensured that any rotational movement would be in the bushing and not the link ends. You really ought to weld a lug alongside the head of the pin to mimic the slot and to prevent rotation of the pin.

Re: 40c mod for 3 pt or 2 inch receiver?

I built a ripper for my 40C years ago. Guick-tach. Used a control valve off a forklift and cylinders from Harbor Freight. Welded 4"x8"x1/2" angle iron into box beam (last one I built for 1010 got a ready-made box beam). Shanks are cheap at the right place @$20. Would have helped to have a strong pla...

Re: 420c 5 roller undercarriage specifications

That is not acceptable behavior. Sounds like either the pinion or brake on that side has a problem. Don't use it until you pull the final and check.

When the left track does that what do you have to do to "unlock" it?

Re: 350 B Reverser

You may have spun out a bearing in the transmission. Remove the transmission cover and see if there is any movement in the shafts. You can bend a hook in a welding rod to try to wiggle the lower shaft.

Re: 440i question

This is sixty year memory working, but I recall pushing the lever forward for reverse and pulling it for forward. Sounds good to me.

Two different jets on two different carburetors, clean, unclean, same symptoms. I think you are on it. Replace the manifold.

Re: 440IC Wont run w/o choke 1/2 on

You say "won't stay running". Does that mean it dies at idle or is it affected the same at all rpm's?

Re: New Owner, in desperate need of guidance!

I had one like that. The reverser would not completely disengage from reverse until it warmed up. Always thought it was a warped plate, but too lazy to fix it since all I had to do was warm it up with the transmission in any gear and the reverser in neutral. Worked fine after a few minutes. It would...
