Re: 440ic gas

I can't take credit for that line, its Stan Disbrow's. I will say I have quoted him a few times to guys who thought they got a wonderfully cheap crawler.

Re: 350B pump

I'm pretty sure the pump will pull out of the drive. I think the couplings, either disconnect drive or the non-disconnect drive, at the pump shaft are all slip fits with nothing locking them to the pump shaft (other than rust and spline wear).

Re: 350B pump

Good morning gregjo1948,

I think you can pull the pump out without removing the nose or drive. You might have to pull the nose and maybe the radiator to service the drive due to access. Just my thoughts, and could be wrong.

Good luck,

Jim

Re: 550b

Did you pull just the final drive itself, or did you go deeper and do anything to the steering clutch? Do you have the technical manual TM1331 for your machine?

Re: JD450C third head gasket This is getting old

JD227 is JD227A in a 1986-1987 Service Guard tool catalog. I think the A gauge is modified to save doing a field modification for clearance; as was called out doing to a JD227 gauge in the service manual for my 2030 single stage engine clutch. My personal thought is someone is wrong on it being JDG2...

Re: JD450C third head gasket This is getting old

I think Lavoy will have the right gauge for you, I got my gauges from him. I got his JD7 gauge for my 430 clutches. The other one I got from him has the JD227 on one side and the JD264 on the other. For reference, from a 450B manual I have, the engine clutch on a 450B uses the JD227 and the steering...

Re: Thoughts on this

x2 on Lavoy's post. Also make sure the clutch and brake shafts, that pass through the housing, are free and well lubricated when it is being changed.

Re: straight 450 loader hose length

Unless someone with the same loader posts the lengths it looks like you will need to make you best guess on how much to change the lengths. As you found, the parts catalog on line gives the numbers and description (HYDRAULIC HOSE - FABRICATE), no other info. The only other thing I can think of is to...

Re: JD450C third head gasket This is getting old

Good morning gregjo1948, From reading the document it is the right oil and I don't see anything in the description that would make me think otherwise. It is in the 10W30 class. The minimum drain interval is given as 100 hours in the document. The maximum drain interval is shown as 500 hours for Brea...

Re: Hydraulic tank question 450c

Morning gregjo1948, That's fine, I have those days too, sometimes worse. Sometimes a wrong or mis-understood post brings out some good information, its always worth asking a question if things don't seem right. Describing things doesn't always read the same to others as we interpret our written word...

Re: snow!!

Hi dtoots1, We only got about 3" here so far. Raining right now, and at times during the night it has rained, some times freezing so some crusty layers in the snow. Temps running 26-32. They are saying possibly another round of snow (maybe1-3") later today then cold for a few days. Can't clean any o...

Re: 1960 440 ICD Build

Thanks Lavoy. Good to know someone has had hands on them and they could be a viable option. Like most things now one should always check around. Prices and what is available vary almost day to day it seems.

Re: 1960 440 ICD Build

This company advertises they make a weld on rim for 350 sprockets along with some others. Might be less expensive than cutting up new 350 sprockets. I don't have any knowledge of them beyond their website; maybe Lavoy or someone else has used their products. http://www.hendersonmfgco.com/parts/parts...
