JD450C radiator availabilty

My 450c popped a big hole in the radiator upper tank today. I know I can pull it and get it acid washed, cored and brazed at a good shop I have used before. But I looked for a new one, and all I found were $1,200 or more! It is a JD part number AT39009. Is there a crossover list somewhere that might...

Missing voltage regulator on my JD 450C

Electrical phenomenon on my JD 450C Ok, this is weird: I am working on fixing and repairing stuff on my new old JD 450C and I find the voltage regulator is completely disconnected! It is present, but not hooked up. In fact, a LOT of wiring is simply gone, switches not hooked to anything. I got a lot...

Re: 450c idler and rollers oil level check/fill

I was wondering EXACTLY same thing as I am getting set to do full lube on EVERYTHING on my "new " 450C

This was a curiosity I never saw anywhere before on all my crazy vehicles.

Now I understand.

Thanks guys!

Re: Tach drive cable

Hey 450FiveString, I got home this morning and went right to the dozer to find the tach cable drive connection. It is pretty easy to get to but was covered in grease and goop and I missed it before. The threaded adapter is there, and so it looks like all I need is the cable. Let me know if you think...

Re: Tach drive cable

Wow! That would be awesome! I am in Nevada on a weeks business trip but will be home at 2am Saturday....ugh. I think that would be great and would gladly give you shipping money and more if you wanted. I need to get my eyes on the connection to the engine and see if the adater and little pinion are ...

Manual says it connects to flywheel area, no pics or drawings. Can i get to the area if I remove the two floor pans? Got any pics of what I should s...

Re: JD450C want to rebuild the T handle linkages

Thanks for the replies and good advice! My temptation is to buy the new assembly and make it right again. But I love tinkering to fix stuff. What if I packed JB Weld around the loose roll spring pins to eliminate the wobble/loose condition? As long as I don't get it in the hole, it should hurt anyth...

JD450C want to rebuild the T handle linkages

My T handle.works, but is very sloppy with all the linkage brackets having worn out holes where all the roll spring pins are seated. Other forums have indicated can't get JD replacement parts, but can drill holes oversized and put bigger pins in. Any thoughts, pictures, procedures, warnings or sugge...

JD450C 1977 model need gauges

Having trouble finding sources for gauges...not restoring it but want decent quality gauges that are similar in design to original. For example if it is an ele trical oil gage with sensor, i dont want a capillary action mechanical type.
Thanks for any ideas you may have!
