Re: 1968 450 dozer starter/flywheel/voltage regulator

Thanks for the reply Stan. I did recently replace the battery and when I had the starter apart checked the bushings. The front looked good the tail end did look a bit dirty and I admit I did not give it enough attention. I will address the tail end bushing and try again.

The problem I am continuing to have with aftermarket gauges is that all the pressure and temp guages (engine oil and transmission oil) that I have found have a port for either a pressure tube or a thermocouple. The guages on my dozer only have two post terminals...
