X2 on what jtrichard said. Run a small semi rigid wire through the vent. It is the 1/8 pipe just under the fuel cap. It runs through the tank and exits the bottom of the tank. You can ask me how I know about this! Bruce

The rebuild that Stan has mentioned will likely eclipse the entire value of the machine. Finding a replacement engine would be a challenge, but probably more financially sound (assuming it is a good replacement). Good luck, Bruce

I recommend servicing the reverser and putting it back to use. I bought my first 420C when I was 16yo. I cut my teeth, so to speak on a gear driver reverser. I think they are much better than shifting into reverse. They are susceptible to wear and miss use. As with any machine of age, go slow, take ...

I'm not aware of a trans breather tube. I suspect the plastic tube you are describing in the sump drain for the fuel tank. I drain a cup of fuel out of the fuel sump to rid the tank of water and sediment every so often. Bruce

Yes, the pick-up screen is very fine wire mesh, about 3/4" in diameter about 2" long. It is in the most dependent part of the sump. The inspection cover is the bottom of the sump, held with 8 bolts, IIRC.

The internal splines can strip. It takes a very close look to see if the input shaft is spinning on the winch. The pick up screen plugs awful easy if the machine as not been run in awhile. Take care, Bruce

If the oil level isn't the problem, A stripped coupler on the winch drive will cause a sudden stop also.

The fill is a large barrel bung type plug on the top right. There is a plug on the right side of the winch, i believe the plug faces front to back. You remove this plug on the side, if fluid comes out it is full. If not, fill until it starts to run out. You may want to remove the inspection cover on...

I use "The Right Stuff" from NAPA made by Permatex. Skip the whole gasket, it will fill a gap up to .090". We use it on all the OTR trucks and Ag equipment. Differential covers etc. We haven't had any call-backs and we have been using it for several years. It does use a small chaulking gun. I strong...

Stan, you are correct regarding the up graded coil, as long as it is the internalresistance variety. Lots of the younger parts people will hand you a coil, thinking a coil is a coil. Take care, Bruce

OP is asking about the transmission, I believe. The clutch houses did not have a common sump in the straight and B series, as stated the steering clutches should be dry. The C series can be converted to a common sump, i think some of the late C's came from the factory with common sumps, correct me i...

Grind off the old rivet heads( or unscrew the screws), remove the old rubber mounts. Fit new mounts, placing the all the rivets in the same direction. You will need a proud 1/8 to 3/16" of the rivet sticking through the rubber mount. If they are longer you may have to trim the rivet back a bit with ...
