Re: Removing Final Drive Pinion Shaft

Thanks for the reply. At least that makes me feel better. Looks like I'm doing the right thing, just not enough of it.

Removing Final Drive Pinion Shaft

http://jdcrawlers.lcent.com:8000/johndeere/albums/userpics/10008/normal_IMG_0726.JPG I'm in the process of replacing a steering clutch on my straight. I'm at the point of removing the final drive pinion shaft but not having much luck. I easily got it out about 1" but it's stopped and hasn't budged ...

450 Drive Clutches

Got a question for the experts. My 450 straight seems to have a final drive problem. I had it apart recently (not the final drives) and adjusted the clutches per the manual. Got it back together and it seemed to do fairly well but the right drive seemed weak. If I get in a hard push the left track w...

Re: 450 Won't Charge

Hey Randy, good to hear from you. Thanks for the offer but I got a new voltage regulator from Lavoy and that fixed the problem. It's charging now. All is fine here, just a lot of rain like last year and going a little stir crazy. I'm retired now and itching to get out and move some dirt when things ...

Re: 450 Won't Charge

Get me one if you can Lavoy. My original model number is RS2J1B. I'll post a picture as soon as I figure out how to do it. The new instructions have me confused.

450 Won't Charge

I've got a straight 450 that won't charge. I've taken the alternator and had it checked out and it's ok. This dozer has a Motorola alternator and I presume it's original. I now suspect the voltage regulator. I just bought a new one (AR77485) but the plug is different. This is the part number in the ...

Re: Tach drive cable

My first dozer too. I'll look at it and make sure it's in usable condition. However I just checked the p/n for the 450 and the 450c and they are different. Maybe someone on here knows if they will work.

Re: Tach drive cable

I just had the engine out of my straght 450 and it had a tachometer cable but I don't have a tach and don't plan to get one. I don't know if it's the same p/n but if it is you're welcome to it. I didn't check it close but I think it's ok.

450 Power Steering

Just got my straight 450 back together and everything seems to be working fine except the power steering. The brakes and clutches are working properly but the left steering lever is harder to pull than the right. It feels very much like the difference between power steering on a tractor or truck. th...

Transmission Filter Case

Does anybody know if the transmission filter case (#10) can be removed without taking the top transmission cover off?
This is on a 450 straight.

Re: 450 Refurb

http://jdcrawlers.lcent.com:8000/johndeere/albums/userpics/10008/IMG_E0246.JPG The clutch housing had 1" bolts in it but I thought it strange that there was this strap welded on the two bolts. Seemed like a bit of overkill to keep them from loosening. After torching off the straps I saw the reason ...
