Re: Snowplowing

Thanks much. Kinda what I thought. But figured I'd check with the extensive experience here. Planning on just keeping my u.p. Michigan camp open. Pretty level drive.

450E steering clutch oil level

I have the manuals. My parts manual is a OE manual but the rest are reprints so that is why I asked. Not real clear as you mention.

450E clutch oil manifold/shifting valve

450E transmission problem not shifting

I have a JD 450E crawler. Runs fine for about 30 minutes, then does not want to shift from forward or reverse (HLR none functioning).
