Re: Track adjustment on 450D

I can't say about the seal as the after market version looks considerably different in make up than the original. Certainly care should be taken if it is separated and then reassembled. If you believe that the possibility is there that it could damage the seals than you may have no choice than to se...

Re: Track adjustment on 450D

Hello Mr. John, Am I missing something here or does the new replacement appear to have forks that will be far to short to reach to the mounting block at the center of the idler wheel? Given that the previous owner welded the washers where he did, and the fact that you are replacing it... you could c...

Re: Location information

Today.... nearly every internet server in the world uses UTC time... with the embedded offset... regardless of country.

Good point dtools1. I hadn't checked that. Take a look again... should see thumbnail, intermediate, and original now.

Re: Straight JD 450 clutch oil manifold replacement.

Hi Rayman,

It would appear that the HLR transmissions were used from the JD450 through the JD450c. Pretty certain the manifolds are identical between all three (JD450b included).

Worlds largest tractor and engine show - ya goin?

Greetings everyone, I grew up in the North West in my earlier life and really it is home for me but I've found myself occupying space here in the midwest since '83 and since that time, I had no idea until about 4 years ago that we have here, in nearly my back yard, the worlds largest tractor and eng...

Re: Steering problems 350b

So I just met a guy today in the town I am in who has a JD1010 crawler with blade. Needless to say we hit it off and could have talked all weekend. He had been through all this with his crawler when he bought it ages ago and began to show me some of the stuff he has. Dang if a LOT of stuff on the 10...

Re: Steering problems 350b

The clutches are dry on mine as well. It is the later versions, C I think, that have the wet clutch and certainly the 450's. My books, and I have the operators, service, and parts manuals don't seem to show anywhere what the diameter of the disc are and I'm getting conflicting reports from several d...

Re: 72 450b clutch is good brake band worn

Hello cmeens, Have you tackled that right brake yet? You could conceivably pull it out through the access under the battery box however it will be a pain.... it will be an even bigger pain to put one back in and get it snaked around the drum. One way though that I can think of doing it that may be a...

Re: Steering problems 350b

As this is my first rodeo on steering clutches I thought I would do one side first than the other should be a breeze.... right? :roll: I do not have the clutch gauge. Spose I should start looking for one. I think I remember in my quest for knowledge on the webernet seeing some references to measurem...

Re: Steering problems 350b

So I have identified from one source that the thickness on the fibre plates are suppose to be 180 thousandths which is exactly what I have but I have also found another site that says it should be 177 thousandths. If the latter is true and I find all my plates are at 180 then it would suggest I have...
