Re: how to chain up a dozer blade

I do not know what kind of blade you have on the 1010C but you might look at the cylinders that lift the blade, if they extend to lift it you might be able to clamp a piece of angle iron or U shaped metal to the rod of the cylinder to keep it from retracting and hold the blade up. That may be out of...

Re: 78 450c won’t turn over but one revolution?

The next thing I would check is to loosen the oil pan drain plug to see if there is any water in the pan. When you just loosen the plug and NOT remove it water (if there is any) will be the first thing to try to drain out. If it got any water in the stack some could have gotten around the rings and ...

Re: JD450C third head gasket This is getting old

Back in 2014 Lavoy said "Throw them in the garbage, then you have plenty of clearance." about the clips on the pressure plate.

Re: A “Thank you” for Lavoy and Inj pump question

If you have nothing better to do, you might try swapping a couple of injectors including NO 2 to see if the noise stays the same or moves with the injector. Just a thought.

Re: Blown fuze

Use a test bulb in place of the fuse. If it is bright you still have the short somewhere. Cheaper than blowing fuses to test. When it gets sorta dim and the other lights light dimly also you are probably working and will not blow the fuse.

Cutting Edge

I was reading Stans Dipstick Diaries and noticed a couple of entries from Cutting Edge. Has anybody heard from him in the last year or so?? He reported that he had been diagnosed with Cancer I think a while back but then he disappeared.

Re: 420-C S/N#100676

Sixty some years ago I ran an 8 volt battery in an old Dodge I was trying to drive. Back then I found a generator shop that was able to adjust my voltage regulator so that I could keep the battery charged, It was rough on headlites as only the bulbs marked 6-8v would last more than a few minutes. I ...

Re: 440ic brake/clutch pedal

The brake and clutch operate on concentric shafts, if proper maintenance has been preformed they operate separate from each other. They will rust together and then not work properly. A 440I has a zerk fitting on the left side to insert grease between them. I have heard of people trying to force some...

Re: 450b Undercarriage rebuild and steer clutches

Will, I think you will find that Lavoy is located near Horace, North Dakota. And Horace is just south of Fargo, North Dakota.
