Re: John Deere 440 icd advice

Bit hard to say without knowing what model blade and valve it has, and would still be guessing without doing correct diagnosis. It should be power both ways (double acting) and likely have a float position it locks into when the lever is pushed forward past the lower position. The blades for the 440...

Re: Tank heater

I would go with the 192. I don't plan on changing them in the summer and I think 205 would be ok in the winter but more than needed in the summer, when the ambient temperature is higher, so there is less temperature differential for heat transfer. The guys who are running them up nearer to you may u...

Re: uploading photos

So send Lavoy (postmaster@jdcrawlers.com) an email to set up an account. Include what you want to use for a user name and password to access that server. Last I knew you can use the same user name and password for the picture server site as you use here, if that will help you. Once you get access an...

Re: John Deere 440 icd advice

Check things as the others have posted. There is the possibility that it is condensation. Running without a thermostat and/or just putting around at low engine speeds can cause condensation to form. An engine needs to be worked to get up to temperature and stay there long enough to evaporate the moi...

Re: Tank heater

A quick disconnect on the drain sounds like part of the arrangement some guys use here on their skidders. They have jumper hoses to tie into their pick up's cooling system and the skidder cooling system to warm them at the woodyard where they don't have power. Connect the hoses, let the truck run, a...

Re: Tank heater

Here a photo of the heater tap points I found recommended by JD for a 4219 engine. I have seen many different tap point used. The critical things with a tank type heater are hot water rises (thermosyphon principal - hot rises and cold drops) so the hot return point must be higher than the cold inlet...

Re: 450C hydraulic fluid

Will you be running it most, and working hardest, in the winter or summer? Your summer temp is at the top end of the recommended temp for the low viscosity. Personally I would stay with the regular (J20C) not the low viscosity (J20D). I say that based on JD showing regular Hy-Gard for temperature ra...

Re: 1986 455E transmission oil checking

Don't blame the Technical manual, you need a copy of the Operator's Manual # OMT81347 for the type info you are looking for here. Checking and adding oil, and other normal service items usually done by the owner or operator are generally covered in the Operator's Manual, not the Technical Manuals. A...

Re: JD 350B boom locking bar

If you want a channel shape like the original weld a piece of flat bar (same length, width, and thickness as your angle) to one leg of the angle. 77 Ford's tip for length is great but if you don't have the head room, length of the support can vary to fit your space. Be sure it sets flat and square o...

The way this reads: "Access to JDParts will be stopped in 2020. However, you can buy parts online from your local dealer using Parts Catalog Application For additional information or specific questions, please contact your local dealer directly." As I read/see it the access to the catalogs will stil...

Re: 450B problem

Put a clean rag under the injection pup timing window and carefully remove the timing window from the side of the injection pump. See if there are any small pellets (mouse turds) behind the cover or fall out in the fuel. If there are any, it is a sign the pellethane ring is breaking up and the pump ...

Re: 450C fluid changes

The common sump just means all three can intermingle and will have the same level. Three compartments can be checked with one dipstick vs. using one dipstick and removing 2 plugs to check the three compartments. Less chance of getting dirt into the steering clutch housing than if you have to remove ...

Re: JD 1010 buying advise

A question popped into my mind after re-reading your first post. Hopefully someone will confirm if I am right or wrong. Did they use the 2-53 GM/Detroit in them as well? I thought the 1010 series was the first of the JD diesel engines. If they were originally only equipped with the JD engines, this ...
