1956 420C Project

Post by jibs1723 » Mon Feb 08, 2016 3:20 pm

recently acquired a 1956 420C with a Greenville steel car company loader on it. I was told it ran and drove when parked a few years ago. Get it home and the engine is stuck. Got it freed up and running and go to take it off the trailer and find out it has no reverse. So after pulling the top cover i find out the gear on the main input shaft that goes to the PTO and for reverse has the teeth broken off. My guess from hitting something with his brush hog. Since then I have dissembled the entire trans and ordered all new bearings and seals and found a used shaft and cluster gear with the help of Lavoy. Figured I would share some pics of the machine and see if anyone had any comments on it or issues that I have missed so far in looking it over.

Thanks I did. Luckily it was all good. Got all the new bearings and seals put in and steering clutches cleaned up and its running and driving good.

Hey weird your loader looks like mine almost exactly mine was my some company in Oakland ca by the tag. Did it have the rippers on it? Mine were missing trying to find pics so I can fabricate them
Looks good
