    Hi: The model# is38620 serial # is 240000001. I called the dealer where I bought the 2 belts ,as well as snow blower in 2003,about problerm and they said there were fractional size belts, so I am assuming they may have sold me wrong belts. They do appear slightly larger in width. Anyhow they are picking it up tommorow. This snowblower was purchased in 2003 and has performed extremely well up to this point. I hope they can rectify problem but will probably eat cost of 2 belts. I will advise. Thank You

Part # 94-8812 is traction belt 106-4498 auger belt
There is a service bulltin on this I have not seen this yet, Ill paste it for you to look at .
this was issued dec 22-2003 you would think that it would have shown up as a problem by now.


UNITS AFFECTED: Model Number(s): Serial Number(s):
38620 240000001-240999999
38621 (Int'l.) 240000001-240999999
38632 240000001-240999999
38635 (Int'l.) 240000001-240999999
38642 240000001-240999999
38645 (Int'l.) 240000001-240999999
38652 240000001-240999999
SUBJECT: Traction belt jumps off the pulley.
SITUATION: Incorrect pulley alignment causes the traction belt to jump off, usually when the drive is disengaged or as a hill is crested.
CORRECTION:
1. Remove the belt cover, engine belt guide and the bolt securing the crankshaft pulley.
2. Remove the auger brake assembly.
3. Remove the crankshaft pulley and the auger belt.
4. On the left side of the machine, remove the hair pin cotter from the speed control link and slide the link out of the pulley pivot assembly. The traction belt can now be removed.
5. Shorten the pulley half nearest the engine (PN 106-7334) shown in Fig 1. Grind or machine 1/8” (.125”/3.2mm). from the hub end of the pulley. The new finished length of the pulley half should be 1.07” (2.7cm).
6. Chamfer the bore to ensure the pulley fully contacts the shoulder on the crankshaft. You can send the pulley to an outside machine shop if you do not feel that you can modify the pulley in house.
7. Reinstall the pulley with a new traction belt.
A. Chamfer edge after grinding/machining.
B. Remove 1/8”.
C. Masking tape used as a reference line.
8. With the engine off, engage both the traction and auger levers and inspect the alignment of both the auger and traction belt idler pulleys (Fig. 2). Since we have moved the crankshaft pulley it may be necessary to bend the idler arms slightly to center the belts. Adjust as needed.
9. Install the engine belt guide and test operate.
10. Install the belt covers.

PARTS: P/N 94-8812 Traction Belt

How do you replace the hour meter in a caterpilar 420D Backhoe?


most hour meter have a 2 wire system connection at the back with either a plug on or nut on bolt connectors
they are held in place by a large "U" shaped bar that goes up from the back of the gauge and presses against the dash or mounting panel
remove the nuts holding the bracket and the gauge comes out the front of the dash or panel
if space to the back of the gauge is limited you may have to remove the dash first

My s579 bobcat skid steer loader is showing the code M0414(engine oil pressure extremely low) but I checked the oil level and its ok.any idea what could be happening


Connect mechanical oil pressure gauge to check real oil pressure. If OK, replace old pressure sender unit. If actually low, are there leaks? Engine may need bearings replaced, or could be incorrect oil or oil diluted by excessive fuel/leaky injectors.

I have a newholland tm 130 that loses power and I think it is fuel related I have checked the electronic pump and that seems to have a good output any ideas


If you have good fuel pressure, Next I would remove an O2 sensor between the engine and catalytic converter. Take it for a drive. If you don't loose power, replace the catalytic converter/s. After that have a diagnoses done on the engine and transmission.
