Customer Question

I hv a 1970's JD 450-C dozer, it had sat for 4 years we got it running, everything worked fine but trans lines were bad and leaked fluid. Paid a man to replace lines.. NOW, after traveling 10-15 feet or so white smoke (trans fluid?) Comes from below and grinding vibration and light noise and engine Bob's down and will die unless clutch is engaged. What could hv possibly happened? This guy will not return my calls. He had it loaded on my trailer when I picked it up. Like to never got it off trailer. Can't go 10-15 feet?

Hi I'm Wayne

I will help you with this

sorry for the long delay

what you are describing is the trans is faulty

or the Torque converter, has gone bad

may have been run low on fluid

I willing to say he never moved it from your trailer

If you used a credit Card stop payment on it

I hope this helped you
