Re: Looking for 450 tool tray pictures or measurements

So Tim (Timmtnman) sends me a picture of his old tool tray and the new one I sent him. Honestly I think he could have gotten a few more years out of his old one. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: https://hosting.photobucket.com/images/v201/Kaiserjeeps/20200429_145419.jpg?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds The rust...

Re: Looking for 450 tool tray pictures or measurements

Thanks Tim, Yes I think as long as they are kept painted and essentially sealed, they should last a good while. I would almost consider a 3/32 or 1/8 thick sheet of neoprene under the battery. Maybe even tool drawer liner with an open weave to breathe. Random thoughts to try and preserve.... Anyway,...

Re: Looking for 450 tool tray pictures or measurements

Original trays are 14GA and the one you see is 16GA which was OK'ed by Tim. I have yet to go get a half sheet...

Re: Looking for 450 tool tray pictures or measurements

Thank you Tim! Glad to hear it. Been busy building another jeep truck. I had not checked in here for a bit. I will get going on the battery tray's very soon. I pulled mine out of my 450C and there was not enough left to even measure. So Thanks for sending me yours. Looks like I need to run back to t...

Re: 450 operators manual, anyone?

I am about to replace my sender. I just had a complete set of new Stewart Warner Heavy Duty series gauges fail by shorting to ground. I have a compete set of new Isspro sealed gauges going in. The sender is at the bottom of the case mounted in a casting on the side of the trans case. I would say it ...

Re: Looking for 450 tool tray pictures or measurements

Very good to hear Bruce. Glad a solution was able to be found. It was fun doing the vandalism covers and these tool trays. Thanks to everyone that ordered one and a big thanks to you guys that helped me with making it happen by sending me the OEM stuff. If any issues ever pop up for anyone that orde...

Re: Looking for 450 tool tray pictures or measurements

Ok, I am almost done making the parts for Btown and Timmtnman. Once the paint dries (not painted yet) in a week or so, I will send them. I am going to put a stop on any more of this work from the covid 19 issues. It is hitting our area. I intend to put these kits on ebay later this summer. There wil...

Hi,

Time for me to point out my tag line! :P

Stan
Ha ha, a man of great wisdom! I have been cleaning the living heck out of my shop the last three days. I have a pretty big box of parts both new and used from this build. I bet that box is worth a lot of money. :mrgreen:

Re: Looking for 450 tool tray pictures or measurements

Thank you Bruce. I appreciate it. My power is back on. The crews here are pretty amazing. I have another day cleaning the shop. I plan on getting your stuff done right after. I am slow but if I don't clean up now, I will never find anything later. :)
I had a whole winter to misplace stuff.

Re: JD450C third head gasket This is getting old

Thanks Bruce. I did not get a chance to look yet. My upper dust collector has the vane style lower housing to get the airflow spinning. I'd be surprised if it was a restriction. I will have a look though. I just returned from Spokane and purchasing a new front idler. My left one has about 14 inches ...

Re: Looking for 450 tool tray pictures or measurements

Absolutely it helps Bruce. You have been very helpful in getting these items made. There is always a bump or two in the process, but in the end with persistence the final product is hopefully as good as it can be. So thank you. So for all future tool tray requests, owners need to measure their batte...

Re: JD450C third head gasket This is getting old

Very interesting Bruce. I assume you meant the precleaner dust bowl up top? Or the two filters in the big filter can between the legs? Regardless I will investigate tonight when my day is done. I am curious and want to correct it if it is not correct. I did not drag my Jeep. :mrgreen: I pushed on tw...
