Re: JD450C third head gasket This is getting old

I am stuck on something. I apparently did not take a good enough picture and the manuals are not helping. I need to ask you guys. The block that the turbo oil feed lines go through, and has the oil pressure sending unit screwed into it, where does it bolt to exactly?? This one. If someone could take...

Re: Looking for 450 tool tray pictures or measurements

Manuals are super helpful but don't always answer questions. I am getting back on the tool trays today. I have three bent up and ready for spot welding and 4 more to do. I should be getting a call today for the support strap material I had shipped in. I also have an unexpected trip to eastern Montan...

Re: Looking for 450 tool tray pictures or measurements

Well they are just 1/8 of an inch narrower. Hopefully undetectable to the eye. On the wood tray, I was pretty sure I had it in right. But you never know. :) I should be able to get a few more parts ready for welding and wood glue today. I am also hoping to land my freshly rebuilt and painted cylinde...

Re: Looking for 450 tool tray pictures or measurements

I was just looking back to see who wanted what and noticed the ebay picture of the tool tray that has compartments was on the board the same way. Not really noteworthy since the new wood parts I am going to make will be a direct copy. I am still curious if it is really backwards. :)

Re: Looking for 450 tool tray pictures or measurements

Hi Bruce, When I put all the parts in to test fit I messed with the wooden tray a few different directions. Since I did not know for sure. I took some pictures to show what I have here. The way it is now, the tool tray board only moves about 1/2 inch at best. The block in front keeps the metal tray ...

Re: Looking for 450 tool tray pictures or measurements

OK guys, small issue. While fabricating my first one, I went for a test fit on my 450C. I was fortunate to still have one support strap on my machine and with Stan's support strap and board he sent I was able to try a test fit. I found an interference fit with even Stan's OEM tool tray. I am assumin...

Re: Looking for 450 tool tray pictures or measurements

I hope to have a stack of newly made parts by the end of the weekend. I hope it warms up a bit when it is time for paint. 6 degrees this mornin...

Re: Help removing/dismantling a 450C starter

I know you found your solution by now. I put my starter in yesterday and it was not easy. The lower bolt is just out of finger reach. And you can't turn a wrench any significant amount to even get a bolt started. I tried just about everything and the solution was a 3/8 drive with 2 feet of extension...

Re: Looking for 450 tool tray pictures or measurements

Will do 77 ford. ******************************* I am having issues finding 3/8 plywood for the wood tray that is not warped. Seems I have a significant curve in every sheet. I may have to go to marine or cabinet grade. I will keep looking and find a solution. The other thing is.... When I get a req...

Re: Looking for 450 tool tray pictures or measurements

Absolutely... With the age, super mild corrosion and what looks like a re-coat of black paint, it is a bit flimsy.

Re: JD450C third head gasket This is getting old

I took the cylinder head in today for some corrective work. I suspect the guides are out also. Then headed to another town for a gigantic hydraulic nipple for the supply side of the new pump. Long day driving. So with the clutch pressure plate staying consistent with each re-install, I put a dab of ...

Re: Looking for 450 tool tray pictures or measurements

I came home from an errand day and had a box waiting for me. I received Stans tool tray, the plywood support board and one metal strap that holds everything in place. Thank you Stan! So I measured the tool tray metal. The main body of the tray is 16 GA just like the vandalism cover. The end walls on...

Re: Vandalism guard and tool tray insert for the left box

It was a fun project. Thank you Bruce for sending me the part. I'd have to think twice and be assured my part was going to come back for me to do that with someone I did not know. So thank you for trusting me with it. And sorry about the flag or tang being a shade long. To fill everybody in, The fla...

Re: Looking for 450 tool tray pictures or measurements

I would also be interested in getting one. I just a 450B that has one but it is bent up and has rust holes in it. The board and straps are good. Thanks Ok, I will put you on the list. I am still waiting on the arrival of the OEM parts. Probably will be here tomorrow. I will keep the progress posted...

Re: JD450C third head gasket This is getting old

The clutch is all adjusted and reassembles back to my settings. Well my block is hanging on a chain ready to go in. The yellow paint was still a tiny bit tacky today or it would be in. I also did some measuring on my cylinder head today and found it is out of spec on the exhaust valves. I thought it...
