Re: clutch plate removal

Someone probably removed the pipe plug out of the bottom of the left quill case. They do this to let oil drain out so the brake band doesn't get soaked. Unfortunately, It lets everything else in. The brake band when properly set, serviced and in good condition is the only thing preventing free spool...

Re: clutch plate removal

My link is to a 3315 power winch found under the 350 c dozer model. Go to my posted link and scroll down to see the label, just below the picture. What model is your winch?? I would like to help, but we need to be on the same page. I have tried your link, but I was unable to see a diagram or # 10, 1...

Re: rear transmission plate removal

If it is cast iron, be careful with the prying force. It will behave much different the cast steel or plate steel when under stress. Best regards, Bruce

Re: Commercial zero turn mowers

Couple other good brands that friends have - Kubota, Grasshopper, Dixie Chopper. I believe in buying from a trusted family owned local dealer. That may influence your choice, b/c of what brands are in your locale. I have always been interested in what brand of engine is being used. We seem to all ha...

Re: Commercial zero turn mowers

I run a Exmark, LaserZ 60". Bought in 2001, 800 hrs of use. 25 hp Koehler carbed air cooled. At the time the business was family owned built in Beatrice Nebraska. Now owned by Toro, still built in Beatrice. The deck is amazing, doesn't clump/plug. Of course I removed the discharge guard, like all ot...

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.

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...
