Re: Year of machine

I agree with amos's ideas. Is the aluminum serial number plate on the machine/front of left battery box still present? If the tag is still there, you could drill the rivets. Most of the "C" models I have been around have the SN stamped into the steel box, directly under the aluminum SN plate. If the...

Re: What Happens When Us Old Farts Die?

"What happens when old us old farts die?" Knowledge, skills, willing work forces shrink. Less productivity, costs continue to rise as the available $$ compete for the limited number of workers/talent. Can anyone say "nanny state" or better yet "guaranteed income". There are been some good examples l...

Re: 450C injection pump issues

I'm confused about which shroud or shield you are questioning. The adapter R51736 mates the exhaust side of the turbo to the exhaust elbow. Below operating temperature, this adapter is loose fitting, it will expand quickly with the rise in operating temperature. This expansion will seal the exhaust....

Re: ignition

Shugy368, I understand the starter and engine are turning over. But the starting circuit and the ignition circuit are different. You have no spark. Re-read the above comments, there is good advise there. Use a test light, make sure you have power to the coil and distributor. If not your problem is b...

Re: ignition

Sounds like a voltage leak. You need to trace the electrical lead from the battery, through the ignition switch to the distributor/ coil. I suspect a broken/unhooked/corroded wire. Take care, Bruce

Agree with above. It is a final drive housing with axle, probably for a 350. Take care, Bruce

Re: fixing up the front yard

Nice work in the front yard!

What are your opinions on the "forestry package". Mainly the pieces that were welded onto the R & L sides of the ROPS.

Re: Fuel tank liner opines

I have had several old tanks lined by Benson Radiator in Omaha, Nebraska. I only use them. The first tank they did for me was 30 years ago. Still perfect today. I have heard horror stores about bad jobs, both DIY and professional, that have separated. I think the epoxy liners are the best for crappy...

Re: 450C Loader Starter

Happy New Year DrLoch, I had the same issue last spring. I have no eBay starter experience. I'm very happy with the starter I got at NAPA. The starter removal and replacement is straightforward. Look at the fastener on the bottom side of the starter. If it is a stud, you will have an easier time. If...

There will be two small radiator hoses, one is flow from the cooling system and the other is back to the cooling system. Th...
