Re: Distance from rear crossbar to center of rear axle

Glen, That makes sense. Mine measures about 13" and the sprocket was hitting on the roller before I moved the roller temporarily. 14" would probably give me enough clearance to install the safety block which I never have been able to do. Just leaving for the sunny south but I will tear it apart when...

Re: Distance from rear crossbar to center of rear axle

Steve, Thanks for going to the trouble. It's great to have another piece of info for the puzzle. You should get your 40 out and exercise it. Don't want it to get lazy. Happy New Year!

Re: Distance from rear crossbar to center of rear axle

Thanks Lavoy. You are probably right about the side frame nuts. They just look like standard nuts instead of the tapered ones that should be used. I'll see how the holes are when I get it apart. Does it matter if I use the earlier studs or the later 9/16" cap screws (whichever will fit)? I assume I ...

Re: Distance from rear crossbar to center of rear axle

Thanks Steven. The sprocket always ran a little too close to the roller, in fact there wasn't any room for a safety block so something may have moved just enough to allow the sprocket to hit the roller 1/4" would have done it. So much has been modified and butchered on this old rig over the years th...

Re: Distance from rear crossbar to center of rear axle

Don't know if it should be the same but mine only measures about 13". Anybody have a 40 4 roller that they can measure?

Distance from rear crossbar to center of rear axle

Working in the woods about a month ago, with my 40c 4 roller, and rear sprocket started hitting on 4th roller. I moved the roller ahead to another hole on the frame to get it out of where I was. Can someone tell me the correct measurement from the rear crossbar to the center of the axle. I suspect t...

Re: # 60 blades

Our local spring shop makes all their own u-bolts. I know these are a little different shape but if there is a spring shop in your area, give them a try. They may be able to help

Re: 420C Carburetor

According to a chart that I have, TSX245 was used on the 320 and the 420 calls for a TSX641. Since the 420 has a larger displacement and more power any of the earlier carbs would probably limit it's power.

Re: 40c PTO

Thanks Lavoy. Looks like I'll have to find a PTO attachment if I am going to buy this winch. The owners manual that I have for the crawler mentioned that the high speed outlet is used for things like winches and hydraulic pumps so that had me hopeful that I wouldn't need the PTO attachment.

Re: 40c PTO

So, if I want to hook a Braden winch up to the high speed shaft, what do I use?

40c PTO

Do I need the same PTO attachment for either the regular or the high speed outlets on the rear transmission cover?

Re: Winch fo a 40c

OK. I talked to the seller again. He has the two gears and the chain but I will need to find a power take off shaft and housing. From my parts book, it looks like this is unique to the crawler. Do you have one or are they hard to find?
