Re: Commercial zero turn mowers

Hi, I have several friends with these zero turn things. Seems as if they flip easily. Two guys managed to do this this spring already. I never liked the things myself. Back in 05 I bought a Deere diesel powered conventional garden tractor with a 5 foot belly mower. It has a tiny 3-cyl Yanmar engine,...

Re: 350 B winch on a 350

Hi, In forward, the front clutch pack gets hyd pressure and makes up. Power passes thru the center shaft and out the back. Output shaft spins in the same direction as the input. Rear clutch pack is left released. In reverse, the rear clutch pack gets hyd pressure and makes up. Power passes thru gear...

Re: 350 B winch on a 350

Hi, Ah. If the clutch pedal is always down, that is likely why it won't move. The reverser dump valve would always be open. Both the forward and reverse clutch packs need hydraulic pressure to make up. If you have a PTO lever, that is OK. It is just an in/out gear for the shaft. You need the shorter...

Re: 350 B winch on a 350

Hi, The 350 reverser has its own pump and filter as well. If that is out of commission, the machine would tow but not move on its own. There has to be reverser hydraulic pressure to move either forward or reverse. There is no main engine clutch. The clutch pedal just dumps hydraulic pressure in the ...

Re: 350 B winch on a 350

Hi, Winch drive is different from PTO drive. Shorter. The end of the winch shaft barely clears the rear of the trans plate. PTO drive sports an in/out lever on top of the trans case. Winch drive does not. Reverser has to always be in forward when running the winch. So, you need a reverse gear in the...

Re: 420C Direction reverser

Hi, Note that if your reverser is the later differential style, you will also need the service manual for the 440IC. The late reverser isn't in the 420 manual. Back then, Deere presumed anyone needing service manuals were dealers and so always had all the manuals on hand. There are some items where ...

Re: JD350 fuel injection issue

Hi, The old style two-filter setup has a tendency to let crud thru when they load up. People tend to not change them often enough. Then, the crud causes the pump to turn hard. That leads to the safety neck-down on the pump drive shaft snapping. Well, better that than ripping teeth off the timing gea...

Re: Dozer blade

Hi,

The trunnion plates are integral to the later trackframes. They have four holes to mount the trunnion pins, which the outside blade frame hooks to so it can pivot. Since the 420 does not have such as part of the trackframe, you have to add them.

Re: Seat cushions for 450B

Hi,

I always send Lavoy an email first when I need parts. He usually has what I need. More so than other sources and his prices are always in line. Plus, this avoids buying junk parts like automatically self-disassembling steering clutch fiber discs....

Re: Angling 1010 Manually

Hi,

The only thing I would use hooks on the blade like that for is carrying a piece of drainage pipe. As in, having just dug the trench across the road, now carry the pipe that way for ease of laying it in place. For pulling anything, that is what the drawbar on the back is for. ;)

Re: 40c 5 roller

Hi,

350 master pin looks like the rest, except for a dimple on the end. It isn't as obvious as a 420 master pin. But, to be on a 420, there needs to be a rim sprocket welded onto the 420 sprocket dish (the original 420 teeth are cut off and the 350 rim sprocket welded on).

Re: 420C "Skidder"

Hi, So, I take it this is a drawbar crawler, no blade or bucket? There was no factory canopy in those days. Those are usually home made. Lots of third parties made all sorts of stuff for them. No factory logging arch or winch, but plenty out there from other makers. The easy way to tell a 420 from a...

Re: 1958 420 Battery

Hi, My Dad's 58 had an issue where the fold down piece hit the clutch pedal, so he trimmed it such that it would lie flat with the pedal up. Now the battery slides right out and no messing with the pedal. I have a 440 gas crawler service manual because the reverser and related bits are not in the 42...
