Re: 1965 straight JD crawler help

That looks like a great little 350 crawler with a nice outside mount blade. These can be great projects. I like that there are lots of little things that can be improved. Fix a little as you go and eventually everything is A-1.

Best regards, Bruce

Re: 350 crawler loader w/rockshaft, 4 in 1 bucket

Hello Lavoy,

Sounds like it is a well optioned crawler! I’m definitely interested in the 3 point pieces (if the current or future owner is will to separate).
Good luck with the sale. Bruce

Re: little help please

Weep hole on the bottom side? If so it sounds like the left side of the case is contaminated with oil. This side is supposed to be dry. It has a dry brake band around a clutch drum. Either the seals on the clutch piston have leaked or more likely the small slave cylinder for the brake band has leake...

The 6305 is an adjustable inside mount dozer. And 6310 is a 4 way outside mount dozer.

Re: John Deere 420c reverser disassembly

I have had good luck submerging piece like this under water (days-weeks). It has been 20 years since I took a reverser apart. And it was the older gear style. When I don’t want heat to change the structure of the metal, I will be patient and soak in water.

Best regards, Bruce

Re: Disasembly Weights and dimensions for Transport by Bushplane

I am a big believer that anything can be done. Given time, money, will etc. the largest dimension pieces will be the C frame for the blade. I would remove the engine. Remove the right and left track groups. Remove the right and left final drives. That leaves the transmission and the rear center sect...

Re: Leaking injectors

You said you replaced the o-rings on the return lines, do you have the original style fittings with the compression fitting/nuts that have to be tightened on each side of the injectors? You can upgrade to the rubber T fitting that use the constant pressure spring clamps. These new style T fittings a...

Re: 430C 3 Point+blade

My 420C had a ATECO outside mount blade with manual angle and a factory 3 pt. The valve was a dual valve. One lever for the blade and one lever for the 3 pt.

Re: '68 450 diesel fuel system mystery

Hello Sir, Check the voltage from the negative post to the positive post of the battery? Is it 8 volt, also? If so, it is possible the jolt may have knocked out one of the battery cells or the cell was dead before up and down jar. It is possible the jolt knock the cell out and now the starting syste...
