Re: photo posted now

They look like they were welded onto one with the star shape. 6 5/8" diameter on the top 2 and 7 3/4" on the round ended one. They are castings, 1 1/8" bore, look like held on with ...

photo posted now

So many disjointed posts on photo posting I gave up. How about a single post with 1, 2, 3, 4, type steps. No extended explanations. I metal detect and have dug up 3 machine parts. I have no idea what they are and thought I'd post a photo here in hopes someone could identity them. Anyone post a photo...

Re: Tough time with JD 420 transmission or clutch, or who knows?

Can be broken and held together by pressure enough to turn the wheels. I actually had a broken crankshaft and the engine would run then break another part. Fix the part and it would run again and break the same part. Did it 5x before we finally found the problem. Hair puller for sure. :?

Wouldn't be a bad deal, but track motors for 440's are really spendy!

Re: Why

Why do you guys like these things so much, I thought by getting a 65 year old piece of equipment, I would have something simple and fun to work on, but nooo, every time I turn around I have another issue, even the simplest maintenance task snow balls. Like changing the oil, started out with a jd oi...

Whoa boy...

Dove hunting this morning and in the field sits '56 chevy 2 ton truck with a well used 420 sitting on it. A bit later the owner drives up and we bs a bit. He says "he has to drain the oil out of the finals". He gets under and pulls the plugs and a fair amount of black oil runs out of the clutch hous...

Water, how?

I rebuilt the 420 about 4-5 years ago and it might have 60 hours since. I decided to change the gear oil. Dropped the finals and the oil was dirty but OK. Dropped the tranny yesterday and got milky oil. The engine oil is still pretty clean on the dipstick, minor coloring.
