Re: JD350 Track adjuster rebuild

Here is the parts breakdown so you can see what should be there. The ball may be a little corroded or otherwise damaged. To get by for a bit, you may be able to break the lock nut (#6) loose on the screw (#7) that holds the ball and tighten the screw down a bit, then reset the locknut. The ball is l...

Re: 350 sprockets for 420

Attached is a photo from the web of a weld-on sprocket rim. Along with Dan's post, this should give you a visual idea of where the cut and weld would be. As Dan described a 350 sprocket would get cut up to get the rim to a similar shape as this, to weld to your 420 sprocket disc. Check with Lavoy, h...

Re: 350c winch install

From further study of the tanks and related lines in the parts catalogs, I believe the straight 350's and some of the B's had a flat bottom tank, as in no sump. 350B S/N 142200 and on had a sump and drain by the parts catalog. It also appears the 3315 winch has had several housing changes. Of course...

Re: JD450 Hard Nose Removal

Chris, John Deere does make them, I think I saw a price of about $300. It sounds you have the basic pattern on your loader. You don't need it to pin to the linkage like the one in the photo, just make it fit so it sets around the rod (3 sides), on the cylinder gland, and under the cylinder's rod end...

Re: HLR slips

Getting yourself a manual will be a help with your problems. Contact Lavoy at: postmaster@jdcrawlers.com. He may be able to help you with manuals. John Deere has them for sale at http://www.johndeeretechinfo.com . eBay is another source. I prefer OEM or good quality reprints of the OEM manuals as th...

Re: 350c winch install

So we keep looking. I was just looking at the fuel tanks in the parts catalogs. It appears the straight 350's and some of the 350B's used different fuel tanks than the C's. Three different tank numbers appear in the C's parts catalog, one of which is in the B's catalog. The tank drawings show some d...

Re: 350c winch install

I have been looking at this,researching, and have the same thoughts as Bruce. It appears the filter is on the wrong side and it was plumbed to use a remote valve instead of the original winch mounted, cable operated valve (which should be where the filter is now).

Re: HLR slips

I don't know the answer, but wonder if your HLR has an adjustment for the HLR valve; which has to be synchronized with the clutch pedal; the same as the later ones and that adjustment might be off. Do you have the service manual for your machine so you have the right dimensions and did you go throug...

Re: JD450C - What engine do I have? Need to source filters

Chris, I would look real hard at the petcock. It would seem the valve part would strip internal to the outer nut threaded into the radiator, from normal use, before the radiator threads would get stripped, unless someone was using a wrench and trying to pull the whole petcock out. It might be hard t...

Re: JD450C - What engine do I have? Need to source filters

It will do for now. "Down the road" I expect you will want to make a steel support to go on a lift ram, it will be quicker and easier to use.

Did you take the 4 bolts out underneath that hold the nose and front belly pan together?

Is the petcock stripped in the radiator threads or inside itself?

Re: JD450C - What engine do I have? Need to source filters

Is your loader raised? Do you have a solid safety support under it? If not that is the first thing you need to take care of.
