Re: JD450C 1975 New Starter Motor Needed

If you have a starter rebuilder nearby that is a cheaper alternative. I got mine done for about $200 vs 650 for new which was NA anyway.

Re: 450C 1975 skid plate/belly pan removal

My hand is just small enough to fit through the hole in the frame to allow me to hold the bottom bolt and get it out or started.

Re: How to determine model year with no number plate

Well duh, there is a tag s/n: 450CC 268050 looks like it is a 1977. Would that year have a common sump?

Re: 450c needs a squirt of ether to start then runs and starts fine

The dozer has been sitting for a while [a few weeks] and the temps have been in the 30's most of that time. Yesterday, when I started it , it was in the 40's but as stated before, it has sat in the cold. No block heater installed. In the late summer, early fall when I was operating it daily, it woul...

Re: 450c needs a squirt of ether to start then runs and starts fine

I have not checked compression but the engine feels strong and does not use oil. When I got the machine from the former owner , I found a well used can of ether in the battery compartment so I guess it has had the addiction for a while :shock:

450c needs a squirt of ether to start then runs and starts fine

Title says it all. New batteries, rebuilt starter; engine spins over fast, blows smoke from the stack when cranking.

it will then start normally or the rest of the day.

Re: JD 450C no crank

2nd reman is finally installed [had a dropped bolt/buggered stud thread episode that slowed me down] and it spun over very quickly and fire right up

Fingers crossed that my starter woes are on the mend.

Re: JD 450C no crank

I just returned from the rebuilder who pulled the starter apart and rebuilt it while I waited.
It needed new armature and another set of brushes. Hopefully Hopefully it will last longer

Re: JD 450C no crank

Well less than two months later the reman appears to have died.
I get no sound or movement from the starter when i jump it connected directly to the battery.
90 day warranty so I will take it back to have them check it out.
