Re: Vandalism guard and tool tray insert for the left box

Good morning Al,

I just could not bring myself to shipping the panel off when it was shaped like a taco. It still is sprung a bit, and any help you could give it would be appreciated. I’m still disappointed with myself for leaving it on the top of the track then backing over it.

Take care, Bruce

If the starter is spinning slow or with low torque consider troubleshooting low voltage delivery.

Hello Al,

I have shipped the vandalism guard via USPS. PM sent with tracking number, said to arrive 1/21.

Keep posted,

Re: Water Leakage BO Lindemna

The pushrod tube(s) will need replaced. I have never used brass under the cylinder head nuts. Always used lead, for torque reasons, and they have worked well for me.

Re: Winter starting a 450C. Block heater? Tank heater? My options??

Good evening kilohertz I didn’t think the tank style heaters had pumps in them. The ones I’m familiar with rely on thermosiphon action and have a heating element inside the tank. The early tanks were steel and would rust out /leak. I think the manufactures have made significant improvements. In a pr...

Re: TO455DX715244

Oh one other convenience, the floorboards are flat/level for the operator. This is a major improvement over the C series IMO. Transmission is a 4spd with a HLR shuttle. Still uses levers for the steering clutches. Good morning Jim. I have found a couple 455D’s for sale and photographed on the net. T...

Re: TO455DX715244

The 455D has 2 more hp, updated tin work and dash. It was only available as a track loader. The D is the next series, succeeding the C series. Otherwise, it is almost identical to a 450C track loader. I think the X indicates a track loader. The 455DX should be preceded by a TO indicating a turbo is ...

Re: Vandalism guard and tool tray insert for the left box

PM sent to oldmetalmender. I agree to send my damaged vandalism guard to you to be measured as a pattern. As above, I would like this original cover and a repo cover sent back to me. I will pay you for the repo cover. I would like to agree on a reasonable $$ for your time and new vandalism guard. Be...

Re: Vandalism guard and tool tray insert for the left box

I would be more than happy to lend my panel to you for measurements. I would like my original panel back. I would like one of your new panels (modeled after my original). I would pay you $$$. We would just need to agree on a price. If I can find a tool tray or measurements, I would like 1-2 trays. I...

Re: Vandalism guard and tool tray insert for the left box

Nice eye spy catch. Those guys are always very pricey. But they are not far from me. I’m in West Central Iowa. And they are in North West Iowa. Maybe I will give them a call.

I would like to work some deal out that would benefit us and maybe others. That is regarding the vandal guard and tool tray.

Re: Vandalism guard and tool tray insert for the left box

Hello oldmetalmender, I had a near NOS example. Last summer I blew a boom cylinder hose while on a project (out in the middle of no where). I inspected all the hoses, and they were at the end of service cycle. I choose to replace all the hoses. I was frustrated and got in a hurry. I rolled the bucke...

Vandalism guard and tool tray insert for the left box

I am looking for a few final pieces to complete my 1977 450C trackloader. I would like to buy the vandalism guard for the instrument panel and the tool tray that fits inside the left box, above the battery.

Any help or leads are appreciated.
Best regards, Bruce
