Re: Implements for 420C

The most desirable implement for this crawler would be a model 810 3-14 plow, in my opinion. Deere made this plow just for the crawlers, but they're almost impossible to find. It has to be a 3 bottom plow, a 2 bottom doesn't have the correct offset. I've been looking for this plow for several years.

440 reverser adjustment

How many joints does your arm need to have to adjust the reverser clutches on a 440 crawler with a 831 loader attached?

Re: 1958 420 Battery

You don't need to attach the maintainer to the battery. If the unit is still the original 6 volt positive ground, attach the positive lead to a good ground source, attach the negative lead to the hot terminal on the starter.

440 reverser

I'm trying to adjust a 4440 wheel tractor reverser. It seems that at some point in this machines life the reverser was rebuilt, but when it was assembled the reverser adjusting pin was put in the wrong position. It can't be seen through the inspection hole. Anyone else ever run into this situation a...

420 & 430 front idler bracket

I have an almost new left front idler bracket M 1824 T for sale. I'd call it NOS but it's obvious it's been bolted on a crawler just looking where the paint is missing around the bolt holes. The center bushing has no wear. Included are about a dozen .010 shims used to adjust clearance. Asking $100 p...

Items for sale

Is there a proper place to list items for sale on this forum? Have some NOS parts I'd like to sale, but don't want to offend anyone.

Re: 440 crawler diesel engine installation

I installed the engine assembly today with the accessories mounted, meaning radiator, fuel filter etc. All went well, except I didn't realize the skid plate had a slight upward bend in it, which caused interference with the engine oil drain plug. Dropped the skid plate about a 1/4" and the assembly ...

Wanted, Head light guards

Relatively new to this forum and haven't figured out where to post for wanted items. If I should post somewhere else please info me. I recently purchased a 430 C with the grill guard, but the headlight guards were not included. So I'm looking for the right and left guards. Part #'s AM 2097 T and AM ...

440 crawler diesel engine installation

Getting ready to install a 2-53 back into a 440 crawler with an 831 loader. As I was looking it over it seems like some time and effort might be saved if the radiator and related items were installed on the engine before the unit was but back in the chassis. Does this make sense, or am I overlooking...

440 reverser

Rebuilding a 440 reverser. Book calls for type 'A' transmission fluid. What is a substitute, can't find 'A' fluid.

Thanks,

440 Options

I've been looking for a 440 crawler for awhile, and I'm in no hurry to buy one, but I'm wondering if JD ever built a 440 with a six way hydraulic blade and three point hitch. The one I'm looking for would have these options, gas or diesel, 5 speed, reverser and hydraulic track tensioning.. Anyone ev...
