Re: HLR Transmission Fluid Question

Thanks for the replies. I also found a post last night on another JD tractor website that talked about a JD-brand dye that could be added to Hygard so you could see leaks better. In any case I'm not sure what it is because it doesn't have the smell of ATF and is more purplish but also doesn't look l...

HLR Transmission Fluid Question

Good afternoon- I posted this question in the "Show and Tell" forum so sorry if you have already seen it. I recently bought a JD Straight 450 crawler dozer. One of the issues is that it has a slow leak from the front of the HLR. The leaking fluid is reddish purple, like automatic transmission fluid-...

Re: I Bought a New Toy

Hi B Town- that's a good point that I should track down. I thought the 450s use a pump for priming and transfer but hadn't looked where it is at. If someone has more knowledge on that I would appreciate it.

If you want it moved, you can send an IM to Lavoy and he can do so.

I Bought a New Toy

Well, I haven't been on much recently due to life, but did think it would be good to show you my new toy. It's a 450 crawler dozer with the manual outside blade that I got very reasonably at a recent farm auction. I believe it is a straight 450 (the sale bill for the auction had seven digits for the...

Re: 1010c Diesel loader

Oh, one more thing. I had posted a thread in the "announcements" forum on how to post photos from a third party site, like Photobucket. i think Lavoy may have upgraded the site to host photos directly, but since it appears you are using Photobucket anyhow it might help you to read that thread so the...

Re: 1010c Diesel loader

I own several 2010 diesel crawlers (the bigger brother of the 1010s) so have some familiarity with them. First of all, resist the temptation to use starting fluid. I've done it myself and it is unlikely the glow plugs are working if you are using it, but you are risking cracking the precombustion ch...

Re: thinking newer truck

I am a big fan of the late 90s F250s and F350s with the 7.3L Powerstroke diesel (not the pre-95 indirect injection 7.3L). That Powerstoke is actually an International Navistar T444 engine and have been proven to be very reliable- both of mine are over 300K miles with no major problems. Being a V8 an...

Re: 1010 Model 310-820 serial 1837, info request

That serial data plate should be on the right ("passenger") side engine block about halfway up. Sometimes they get really coated with oil and dirt and can be hard to see, or if the engine has ever been swapped you may be SOL. In most cases, you usually don't need to have the exact serial number for ...

Re: 2010 CRAWLER TRACKS 1963 model

As you may or may not be aware, the individual track links (rails) for the "early 2010s (meaning prior to serial number 42,000) are the same as used for the 440 and 1010 crawlers- unfortunately those crawlers use fewer links than a 2010 so finding enough of them to create a complete 2010 track with ...

Re: Shop floor options

I'll throw these other ideas out there even though they may not be cost-effective or desirable for you; some require fine gravel surfaces prior to application: -asphalt (although presumably you considered that in conjunction with concrete) -"self binding" aggregate -salt application (such as mag or ...

Re: Quite the Blow

Really sorry to hear this CuttingEdge- you seem like a really nice guy. I will say this- I have a number of friends and family with cancer right now and depending on the type can have a good prognosis. I'll add you to my prayers.

I believe I bought my first 2010 in 2006 so just over a decade for my first one :)

If 2010Jim is still checking this board, it might be nice to hear an update on parting out as I had previously expressed interest in some parts he had not gotten to yet.

Re: Komatsu D-21A Need some advice ?

I would also suggest the Yesterday's Tractors bulletin board- they discuss a wide spectrum of heavy equipment.
