Re: Bristol Wrench

Just asking this as we don't have any knowledge of your background working on injection system components. What is wrong with your injection pump? Do you have the facilities to check and calibrate it?

Re: 420 transmission

Send Lavoy an email (postmaster@jdcrawlers.com) and see what he might have, or ideas of where you might find the parts.

Re: Track questions

Hi Ed, Knowing your location will help with what folks may see or know of, to make you aware of. How large an area are you looking at in your search? Do you have a way to transport one, either your own or a hauling supplier? I ask as a few weeks ago there was a 450D on Craigslist Maine that looked r...

Re: 1010 Dozer Blade

Good morning,

If you can't find one, and you likely plan on this, I would take the pieces to a good fab/machine shop and see if they could repair it or duplicate it in steel. It might be pricey but options appear limited.

Re: Track questions

mikie62, You say you aren't finding anything in your area, it might help if you add your general location to your profile. Someone might just know of a machine that is not advertised within a reasonable distance from you. You might be to locate a good one in a different area and pay some freight to ...

Re: 450 lower rebuild price

Good morning mikie62, Short answer: paying more for a machine with a new/recent undercarriage might be an advantage, depending on what you want. It is an expense you may avoid for the entire time you have the machine, depending on how much you use it. And the machine won't be tied up as a project, n...

Re: Drott 4-in-1 hunting, bucket swap a JD 2010 to my 350C?

Drott was purchased by Tenneco years ago and made a division of Case Equipment. My guess is you would have to ask Case if they have any historical info. My thoughts are going and measuring the 2010, 350, and 450 loader frames and pinning arrangements will be your quickest and easiest way to see whic...

Re: 1010 Dozer Blade

Check out the parts catalog for a 616 blade. I think this is the page showing your part (Item 22 - Lock, clamp, Part # U15553) https://partscatalog.deere.com/jdrc/sidebyside/equipment/83738/referrer/navigation/pgId/97938 . As you likely already know or can guess JD says NLA from anything I found. Di...

Re: Track Shoe Life/Wear - Grouser Height

Another option is to get grouser bar stock and weld on to yours. That can be an option in some cases, depends on pad thickness and available resources to do it, as it can be done without removing the pads.

Re: Track Shoe Life/Wear - Grouser Height

Hopefully someone will have the info from the manual for you: in the mean time I'll offer this. There are some copies of the SP326 manual for sale on eBay, but may be older than your 550J. The descriptions read like those (at 1000 pages plus) cover more than just John Deere specs. Some of the pads h...

Re: 3315 Winch Hydraulic Valve

I don't have anything but your photos to go by so -- I maybe wrong here. Your manual doesn't have a schematic of the oil lines and flows for the different functions I take it. (Right/left, front/back, top/bottom are based on setting in the seat) I am thinking you have a remote valve (not mounted ove...
