Re: Light at the tunnel’s end.

Re: After market engine numbers location

Your crawler serial number, 264170, is a 1977 serial number. The T means it was built in Dubuque, Iowa. As I said you don't have an aftermarket engine, you have a John Deere engine from a different application. The trick will be finding the right chart/list to decode that engine number. The L at the...

Re: 450g fuel filter

From the way it looks in the parts catalog not all of them had the fuel water separator, so yours might not have one. Your service manual should consist of two publications, so it would be thick. First is TM1403 - 450G, 455G, 550G, 555G, 650G Crawler Operation & Test Manual. The second one is TM1404...

Re: 350 G for sale

The 350 Gas was for sale, so here is right I believe. I was referring to your post about your 420 would be best on the Early Model Board, unless for sale.

Re: 450g fuel filter

Welcome to the Board. Yes, it will require bleeding when you change the fuel filter. If you just change the filter and don't disturb anything else you should be able to bleed it right at the filter and not need to bleed anything else. Your operator's manual should give you the info on servicing the ...

Re: 350CB final drive question?

You can go to jdparts.com and pull up the parts catalogs for the 350, 350B, and 350C where you can compare all the parts. At least some of the major part numbers don't match up (housings, bull gear, spindle). Someone may be along and say it will be ok but I don't think I would not do it without cert...

Re: 350 G for sale

That's too bad. Hope you had antifreeze enough so it just slushed and didn't break anything. Something to consider is that using a 50/50 mix of antifreeze coolant year round not only lowers the freezing temperature but raises the boiling point as well. This post should be on the Early Models Board, ...

Re: JD350C Final Drive Axle Spacers?

You have the basic idea. Here is how they describe the serial number as applied to the parts. SERIAL NUMBER LISTING INFORMATION SERIAL NUMBER INFORMATION IS LISTED TO SHOW ON WHICH MACHINES EACH PART CAN BE USED; FOR EXAMPLE: - THE PART CAN BE USED ON ALL MACHINES. 000000- THE PART CAN BE USED ON AL...

Re: After market engine numbers location

Not to say all are this way, but usually the components from the original engine have to be swapped to the replacement engine as the water pump, injection pump, and the housing at the rear of the block have to be changed as those often are different on engines used in generators, welders, and such. ...

Re: 420c Alternator issues

All new wires? All the old generator and regulator wires discontinued or removed? Does the alternator have a ground terminal on it? Even though it should ground through the case try running a jumper wire from the ground terminal to the battery ground post. Eliminate the possibility of excess resista...

Re: 420c Alternator issues

With that voltage at the alternator it should be charging the battery. But you don't say where you are checking the voltage. If you are checking at the alternator, what is the voltage across the battery terminals? 12 volt negative ground? One wire (10 gauge recommended) from alternator battery termi...

Re: neats foot foot powder

Some of the old operator's on cable cranes, shovels and backhoes used "Fuller's Earth" on clutch and brake frictions. These would be open shoe and band type brakes and clutches. It could smooth the operation of a brake, improve the grip of a clutch friction, and help "dry" the effect of a bit of oil...

Re: After market engine numbers location

I guess I don't understand what you mean by an aftermarket engine. Do you mean it is not a John Deere engine? Or do you mean it is the proper size John Deere engine (4 cylinder 219 cu.in. turbocharged for a 450C) that was rebuilt by someone other than John Deere? If it is the right family JD engine,...

Re: Grease fitting size 7/16 27

Those grease zerks are pipe thread, not bolt threads. 27 pitch thread is 1/8" NPT (National Pipe Thread). If you want to plug those holes you need to get some 1/8" NPT pipe plugs.
