Re: 1977 JD 450c Loader has no power in reverse

It's odd that all the shifts do not return to line pressure and I don't think adding a penny would do much good as it's already running at 170. Depending on if its a normal shift or fast shift, and the accumulator dumping, it always should return to high pressure and just vary in time. •Shuttle in N...

Re: 350 snow cab compatibility

The jdparts site lists the same AT 35537 cab for the 350 b and c models, no cab is listed for the straight model. Not saying one wouldn't fit though...

Re: reverser oil flow question

When you had the clutches out, did you get to clean the insides and the case sumps? I remember reading here something about running changes of designs for common/separate transmission sumps and drain plugs. A general question: is pressurized lubrication delivered to the ring gear or is it just the H...

Re: As Seen On TV (online, actually)

I bet you walked up hill both ways to school in 6' of snow too !!!! Had to break trail thru 6 feet of snow peppered with broken glass barefoot and when I was lucky, carrying a hot potato to keep my hands from freezing and eat later for lunch. I grew up in a muddy hole in the ground, and we were pro...

You folks with your fancy drive motor crawlers. My dozer just has bicycle crank pedals but I'm happy to have it!

Re: reverser oil flow question

Mine seemed to burp air a couple of times after refilling.

Have you checked the oil level when it's making the buzzing noise? Is it different than when its not making the noise?

Re: Low track power

Some quick questions.

What model is this? I think I hear you say 60's and from the serial numbers listed here, it would be a straight model?

If you tip the bucket and bury the teeth in the ground, will it pull backward?

Re: Low track power

Sorry, I meant to come back and post this.

I made a vid a while back with a gauge on my test port.

Re: A Third Track on a Bulldozer?

I was expecting something more like a Terex TC12, there were several nearby road building when I grew up.

Or a Transformer.

Anyway, that's neat!

Re: new website design????

It's odd that you would be served such an old page. You do have to dig a bit online to get those older archived versions.

Perhaps your browser jumping in its own way-back machine. You did say you recognized the page served.

Re: Low track power

The pressure regulator, cooler bypass and the lube dump valve seem to be giving you fairly regulated pressure readings. So dropping to 0 indicates a blockage or starvation... When you say 'load the machine down' you mean as in pushing hard at operating RPM, yes? While doing this, the engine RPMs rem...

Re: Low track power

Oil pressure at the bung hole.

Did you remove and re-install a 1/4 inch plug under the bung plug where you had the pressure gauge? That should not fountain oil with just the big plug out.

That's the company.

There was a milk bottle plant in Oil City too and from a certain spot, you could see the blobs of molten glass.

Re: City people, gotta love them, or laugh at them

I have a foggy memory of living in Pleasantville, my dad was skidding logs with a little John Deere for a company, if I remember, named Young. We have bears here too. They are a bit more aggressive than the cougars and always exceptions but usually, they all would rather run away. It's the sasquatch...
