Re: First One! My 350C

Stan, I have been looking for years, I have not found a source. About 12 yrs ago, Mother Deere had several hundred available at ~$10/piece. So I started saving my money to buy a “set”. After I have the cash (1year), I go back to the dealer. None available, what the heck! More checking with Deere, th...

Re: First One! My 350C

Hello,

Looks like a nice and competent machine. Sweeps, winch, fairleads.....

Ice caulks for frozen/icy ground. You can be sideways, speeding down hills and turned over very quickly.

Best regards

Re: Ripper shanks

Hello,

I went to the vault and checked. No operators manual for the 3110, but I do have a era correct paper parts manual. I couldn’t determine how the shank is attached.

Keep us posted. Bruce

Re: Trans-reverser joiner-stud snap :( how the F...

I have heard/read that the whine is present on quite a few machine and is usually acceptable. I believe it is very important to keep all the bolts tight. Bad news about the stud breaking. I would definitely favor removing the broken stud and replacing. Tons of different ways/ideas about how to remov...

Re: 1010 gas won't stay running

Back to the basics? Fuel, wind, compression, fire. I wonder if it could be the electronic ignition. I have seen some mysterious things happen to them, leading to frustration and questions.

Re: 350B Stalled. Fuel Issue?

So I haven’t read the entire thread, but when you unscrew the cap and it made a hiss, made me think the tank is not vented properly. Hard for the transfer pump to overcome the negative pressure. Are 350 tanks vented under the fuel cap like the 450’s? Try running with the cap loose. If it runs, it mu...

Re: Track bolt removal

I believe the bolts are hardened, also. But it has been my experience that the hardening is usually on so deep and not the entire diameter. Drilling the center is a good idea.

Re: 1971 450c milky hydraulic

Hello, I would examine the hydraulic fill cap. It is very similar to a radiator cap, it has a rubber seal and spring. I would make sure they are in good order. Does your 450C have the external spin on hydraulic filter along side the hydraulic tank or is it the older style with the filter inside the ...

Re: John Deere 440 icd advice

Ok thanks. Owner claims it's been an on going issue. Keeps getting Milky, even creamy on top of the dipstick. His mechanic says it's because of condensation and lack of use. I'm not convinced. He doesnt want to be bothered cracking the drain for me. Says it's mine for $800 CAD as is Jesh....for $80...

Re: John Deere 440 icd advice

Hello, There are not too many places where water can get into the engine oil. Either it is from the environment ( owner left the dipstick laying on the fender, owner left the fill cap off, rain water down the muffler/exhaust) or it is from the cooling system (cracked head, cracked block, bad head ga...
