Re: John Deere 350b reverse problems

Amazing how similar your problem was to mine...I got lucky and only had to replace the input shaft bearings....

I don't know where you live but I have two spare 350's that might work for you if Lavoy can't get you going.

Re: 350 Steering clutch driveshaft

Where they in the clutch housing? One cannot see anything from the other side of the dozer from this area.

If the washers were in the clutch housing then they could have easily have fell thru the top cover. The hub that holds the clutch disks doesn't have room for anything to happen like this.

Re: 350 Steering clutch driveshaft

I had a similar situation and thought adding some spacers might help, but I decided against it. That being said I'm interested to know how big the washers are? I.d. specifically. This might tell us where they may have been used. I'd say there was some excess play and they seemed like a good idea at ...

Re: Fuel wont Bleed after Fuel Filter replacement

I've never used one, but they should work. If I was interested in changing over to a spin on I would try to find a complete housing and simply run the fuel lines in/out and be done. An adaptor might take up too much room and create more joints for potential leaks (air/fuel). A one piece housing elim...

Re: Fuel wont Bleed after Fuel Filter replacement

Improper install is usually what gets us on most things. Funny thing is that housing gasket slips down onto the filter and one doesn't realize it. Then upon install you're thinking that gasket fits nicely in the top of the filter....wrong. I do believe the wix filter should be changed, but we all li...

Re: Steering clutch drive shaft 350 straight

Because the shaft rotates a snug fit is necessary. I don't know the correct shaft size nor am I a machinist, but I would think 1/16 of and inch difference could be made up with a bushing. Is the shaft chamfered? If so I would say there is little to no wear. If no chamfer exist then there could be no...

Re: Needing a new air compressor

The Craigslist ad is now deleted, but I bought the compressor for $350. It included 50' of electrical wire, so I feel good about it. I've ran it a few hours since the purchase and am quite happy. I was looking in Lowes a few weeks ago and noticed the Kobolt compressors had a Campbells Hausfield comp...

Uhaul dealer

I've got some nice highway frontage and am thinking about getting in to the uhaul business.

Anybody have any experience with being a dealer?

Re: HELP!! Final drive mistake

That would be a good idea, I never even thought about installing the drum first. If Deere would have designed it this way things would be easier for sure. I drilled holes in the ends of my snap ring to make it easier to install and remove. That ring is a beast and needs a bit more work to spread it ...

Re: HELP!! Final drive mistake

I've rebuilt both sides in my 350 straight. The snap ring you mention holds things together...it'll have to be in place if you want to run the dozer. Otherwise you've wasted your time and money and will most likely damage something else. Here is a video that might help. The 1.06 mark to be specific....

Re: HELP!! Final drive mistake

What model dozer?

Is it the big circlip? The ends are shaped like a "V" as opposed to two little holes like most snap rings.

Either way I would say you need to pull the final back off and put the clip on. It a pain, but totally necessary.

Re: John Deere 350b reverse problems

If memory serves ...To pull the transmission cover you will need to remove the canopy, fuel tank, disconnect the hydraulics, remove the seat/battery/hydraulic tank assemblys and finally 12-15 bolts hold the cover on. From here you can easily see the gears, bearings, and see their function. There's a...

Re: John Deere 350b reverse problems

When placed in reverse you get a whining noise and the forward seems to "mess up" until you let it set for a period of time? Correct? If this is the case then It seems that the reverser gets some type of pressure lock and needs to depressurize before forward will work. Could be something simple with...
