40c safety blocks

Safety blocks were missing on my crawler when I got it. I picked up a set of used blocks and am installing them. It appears that the "nose" on the block is longer on one end than the other. Does the long end go up or down or does it matter?

Re: 40c Serial Number Tag

Thanks Jim. I have some of the drive rivets you suggested but wasn't sure that they would "bite" into the cast iron of the center frame. I have sanded the area of the broken rivets but can't really can't see the outline of the broken rivet. I will just use a drill of appropriate size for the rivets ...

40c Serial Number Tag

Does anyone know the size and type of rivets to use to hold the serial number tag on. The old rivets are broken off and since I have the side frame off for repairs, I want to drill out the old rivets and reattach the tag. I don't want to try to drill the holes into the casting. I would rather just d...

Re: #61 blade mount left side

I agree. It's probably a 60. Go to the same site and look up the diagram for the 60 and then you will know. If it's anything like my 61 any similarities to the original are purely accidental after 60+ years of haphazard repairs and "improvements". Good luck!!

Re: #61 blade mount left side

Seth, I too a look at mine this morning. Not sure which piece you are referring to but the side pieces of the lifting frame are both the same length-22" overall and 20" center to center but they are an integral part of the lifting frame so that's probably not what you need. Maybe if you can give me ...

Re: #61 blade mount left side

I think the dozer blade on my 40 is a #61. I have a parts book and can measure the part you need. Which part of the mount do you need, the long arm that runs back to the pivot point? I can take some measurements if it will help.

Anybody know where I can get a TE239YT Bushing that goes in the side frame where it bolts to the clutch housing?

Re: Where to get parts?

Glad you found one. Lavoy is a good source for a lot of parts especially running gear. However, once in a while you have to pay a high price for a specific part if you really need/want it. You probably could have cobbled together a standard fitting plus some adapters but all in all probably would ha...
