  1. Roller Maintenance

    Excellent advice, I did get some key stock both 1/4 & 1/2 inch, it was my thinking to use them on plugs, your advice confirms that. I'll check around stores for your other ideas. Thanks john

    I will let you know when I get mine running right. Spending the winter converting it to updated newer parts. Also converted it to 12 volt system. My original parts pile is growing but that just means less to go wrong when I start to use it.
  5. Roller Maintenance

    I apologize for posting here instead of under the construction forum, new to the site. North of 60 THANKYOU, very helpful, Matt!! my kind of guy, always looking for an excuse to BUY TOOLS. THANKS GUYS any more tips will be accepted, this is my first dozer, learning as I go.
  6. Roller Maintenance

    I could use some advice on the maintenance of my rollers. What exactly should I be putting in them? Oil or HD grease? This unit has plugs and grease fittings. The plugs are 1/4" to 1/2" depending on location, and other than an old ratchet drive or some metal stock I purchased from hardware store I have no tool to easily remove them. So I'm seeking advice on what to put in rollers? And tips on how to make maintenance a smooth job. Also how often do I service them. I have a manual, but it seems it might be outdated?
  7. Maintenace Update on my T340

    Thanks Sledgehammer, no I plan to use it keeping roads dressed and logging on my farm. When I first bought it I was going to restore it back to original. But now Im just gonna make it mechanically sound and use it. I have other toys: 1941 Oliver, 2 kubotas, cub cadet tractor, etc. Me and my neighbor who has a body shop next door love finding old stuff and refurbishing.

    Spending the winter replacing water pump, clutch, hydraulic cylinders, steering clutches and other odds and ends.
  9. Maintenace Update on my T340

    Pulled the gas tank and radiator over the summer. Had them boiled, re-lined with dip and then painted. Made sure the chassis had fresh primer and paint before putting back on machine.

  11. T340 steering clutch

    I respect and enjoy your responses. Nice to have a source of knowledge. I purchased both the "Service and Parts Manuals" from WI based company, they printed off 2 fresh copies for me back in 2011. My mechanic has done plenty clutches he services a mining company here in Ohio, both gas and diesel powered. He actually has a 1010 himself and already has gone through the same problems with his.
  12. T340 steering clutch

    Thank you for the response mmi, and aren't you just FULL of GOOD NEWS! I had a feeling it wasn't as easy as some have led to believe. I have my dozer with a professional mechanic right now installing the main clutch. The engine is pulled, we found the main left cylinder has been punctured, so making all new there. But after that we are going to look at steering. He has extensive experience with heavy equipment and seems to think that this unit has NEVER been adjusted out. He says I have full adjustment left in the linkage and seems to think that's all would be required to fix the problem!?! Keeping my fingers crossed. Will take pictures as we proceed.
  13. T340 steering clutch

    I'm currently putting in a new clutch and after wards looking to (adjust, replace/whatever) the planetary steering. My left side just barely moves the dozer, you have to really pull on the lever to get anything out of it. The right side is better, but it could use some help too. Everything I've seen in my manual or online looks like a simple job of removing the seat and pulling the shifter plate. Having the brake pads re-lined and putting it all back together. HAVE I MISSED SOMETHING???
