Neil, I use the Kreem product. If it's not clean, I don't think the liner will do much good, long term. This is what I do. For the cleaning part, take a small chain, I have about a 3 ft. peice of some 1/8 link stuff. Put it in the tank with some lacquer thinner. Roll it around for a while. Don't for...

I have a #44 with 2-14's that I've pulled with mine. In NC's red clay, it's all the little 40 wanted.

Thanks Lavoy, I'll try that. The crawler isn't rusty at all but inside the housing, maybe it is. The guy said the 3 pt was taken off 20 years ago so, it likely hasn't moved in that time.

420 3 point woes

I recently aquired a 420C with a 3 point. Everything 3 point related was removed from the crawler except the rockshaft. I did get all the removed parts so I'm in good shape there. However, the rock shaft is frozen solid in the housing. I haven't put a lot of pressure on it but did slip one of the li...

I use Photobucket www.photobucket.com for some of my web photo hosting.
It's free and you get 1 gig of storage, I think.

Hard to get that white stuff in the south. You can beat that background you have up there.

Happy New Year to all!

Jimmy,

Enjoyed the pix. Looks like you did a good job on the final.

I bought a Gator last year for hauling stuff around and don't know how I got by all these years without it.

Just a thought on the rod knocking. I thought I had the same problem with one of my model 40's. But after changing the connecting rod bearings with no improvement, I pulled off th head and found some "peices of metal" imbedded in the top of the piston. Not sure of where it came from but I suspect in...

Congratulations on surviving. I know what you went through as my wife just finished her treatments. Just hang in there. Lavoy is right, you have the best therapy, green and tracks.

God Bless!

They should be the same, according to the parts book. AT10863T is the correct assembly number for 40 and 420 to serial #100000. Looks like T11006T is the casting number. If they don't match, be sure someone hasn't been swaping things before you got them.

You have a great son. I have borrowed my neighbor's 6 ft trailer bushog and used it behind my 40C. Works very well but I'm with Howard. I'm generally just mowing weeds but I can load it up pretty good in low spots with thick grass. A 5 ft would be much easier on the machine and don't forget to use a...

I think you will have to remove the radiator to replace the belt. I don't have a 1010 but I have to do that on the 420.
