Re: 450 straight crawler

I would contact SEWL, Schaefer Enterprises of Wulf Lake. Tall order and a long shot, but worth a try. Bruce

Re: Water in oil

Good job. It is always nice to hear/see a good machine brought back to serviceable condition. Are you using an anti-cavitation additive or did you use the life time coolants that have the additive in them already? Bruce

Re: rebuilding 350B final and reusing pressure plate

Good morning, First off, I am not terrible familiar with the 350's. I thought there was a special tool to set the height of the pressure plate contacts for the throw-out bearing. I think this would be a very important step, since you are changing the height of the clutch pack with new clutches. Bruce

Re: 450B transmission

Proper adjustment and removing as much slop in the pin/clevises are where I would start. I agree with Lavoy, the proper owners manual, parts manual and the service manual are a must.

Re: JD 450C final drive sprocket bearings

You should not have to jack the crawler. Locate the track master pin and position the pin at approximately the 9-10 position. You will have to split the track, remove the sprocket. You can make a special hanger, pictured in the tech manual, to lift and pull the final drive off. Best regards, Bruce

Re: PTO shift lever

Stan's trailing attachment comment is simply a different way to describe or explain a pull-type piece of equipment using the drawbar, drawbar pin and implement tongue/trailing attachment.

Re: reverser oil flow question

Sounds like you have found your problem or a least some parts of your problem. Vermin have definitely been busy. One can only guess how they got the acorn in the system, maybe the system had been open at one time? I have had personal friends tell me about nuts, seeds and nesting inside a cooling sys...

Re: 6 volt change to 12 volt

I agree with all that Stan has stated. Yes, 6 volt systems started as pos ground. May have have been changed to neg ground. To provide concise instructions, I wanted to know the systems current configuration. Best regards, Bruce

Re: 450C Hydraulic pump

Yes, I have replaced the pump. You may be tempted to remove the pump without removing the hardnose. To save yourself, it is easier to remove the hard nose and then work on the pump. Bruce
