    Hello everyone my name is Dave and I'm based out of Cornville, AZ. I recently inherited a JD400 from a family friend. It looks to be in decent shape but I'm told it needs some work.

    This 400 had been sitting for the better part of 4 years with a full tank of gas. I wouldn't believed if someone told me but after turning it over a couple of times it fired right up and ran perfect.

    So i just picked up a 81 400 and was going through it. I noticed a leak in the steering valve so i pulled it off and replaced the o'rings. No leak now but it only steers to the right, its really hard to get it to steer left. I jacked the front up and removed the two hoses and moved the steering...

    Since my hydro pump died on me earlier this year, I'd figure I should have a spare in my shop incase it happens again prior to a big snow storm. I started rebuilding a non-working pump and determined the problem. Like other members on here, with the Sundstrand 15 in-line, my problem is the...

    So the weather is nice enough to where I can start to do an assessment of my 77 JD400 parts tractor, to determine whether or not to return it to "functional". I purchased it as a parts tractor for my 75 JD400, and have since swapped out the hydro and rear end. As I'm preparing to clear all the...
  14. FOR SALE
    I have a Kohler K532 that I pulled out of my 400. It is complete and was still running (although the right side connecting rod is gone). The carburetor, starter, stator were all working. Let me know if you want an individual part. I would sell the complete engine as it sits for $100/offer/trade...
