Re: JD450C Transmission case leak/repair.

Is it possible the hole is there to allow drainage in a non-oil filled cavity, such as a clutch bell housing. I have seen people put split pin in those holes to discourage insect migration, water intrusion, etc..... if it truly into a oil cavity, my advise would be to remove the oil, completely. Rin...

Re: What would you do?

Rarely these frozen issues go away with use. These frozen clutch issues can’t be sprayed with any lubricants or solvents. To make your machine useable, you will most likely need to disassemble the respective components, loosen, rebuild and reassemble.

Best regards, Bruce

Re: 3315 winch freespool not working

The pressure from the pump will energize the slave cylinder (releasing the brake) then pressurize the clutch circuit fractions of a second after releasing the brake. It is essentially one circuit. Free spool is a valve issue or a slave cylinder issue. If the slave is leaking and oil is present, I wo...

Re: 3315 winch freespool not working

What control valve is on your winch. Ah, just read farther!! Spool valve. Has it been apart? With new o-rings? Are the hoses routed properly?? Are the hoses new?? Usually the free spool issue is a valve problem, esp since the slave cylinder on the brake looks normal. The grease in your test port is ...

Re: 440IC track grease fittings

I believe the button heads are a low pressure grease system. Do not use your high pressure gun or adaptors. Email Lavoy (this sites proprietor) for the correct low pressure gun. Best regards, Bruce

Re: JD440 IC flush the hydraulics

I have read several articles/members using Seafoam with good results. There is a lot of fluid in the cylinders and hoses that will need purged.

Re: To paint or not to paint

I prefer original paint. If a machine is re-painted, I would wonder what is under the paint. I would partially judge the quality of the machine based on the quality of the re-paint. I have seen many trader machines where everything is painted, hoses, wires, filters etc... I always thought those jobs...

Re: Carrier roller on 450C

No need to split the track. You may have enough slack that you can lift or jack the track off the upper idler. If not, you may let a little grease out of the front idler tensioner. Best regards.

Re: JD 350 left side track barely drives

May have accidentally left one out. I have read a thread about that very situation. Doubtful here, since both sides were done. Keep us posted.

Re: JD 350 left side track barely drives

The PO could have put the wrong # of disks back in the clutch pack. One less disk would cause your symptoms, also.

Re: JD 350 left side track barely drives

Water in the clutch housing typically causes lots of corrosion and swollen disks. This will cause the clutch to lock up. Some people buy inexpensive disks to lower the price of their rebuild. The center of the cheaper disks can be tore out and cause problems like you are describing. Either way the l...

Re: JD 350 left side track barely drives

Good afternoon, You mentioned the right side was rebuilt (I assume this was done by the prior owner). Did they do any work on the left side? It has been my experience in the crawler world that one side is not far behind the other side. If adjusted properly by the manual and no prior work, I would ex...
