Why are you rearching for a rebuilt instead of rebuilding it yourself ?? To my knowledge , there is only one part that isn't available for it anymore.. That's the Torrington input shaft bearing in the pump housing..They have a replacement bearing that isn't as long and uses a spacer for length.. The replacement also has less roller bearings in it..I don't like it , but it does work.. You can get clutch parts aftermarket as well as bearings to lower costs..Sure , it's not a walk in the park to rebuild , but if you can find an old [ seasoned] former Deere mechanic, you have an ace in the hole..If you were closer , I'd do it.. I've done dozens of 450 HLR's in my career..Much of the sucess is in the set-up and adjustments of the HLR transmission.. Poor adjustments are the sucess/failure of this job..adjustments when the transmission start getting harsh are sure service life extenders.. That HLR should shift at wide open throttle without touching the clutch pedal at all..On the high to reverse shift , it should just pull you off the seatback..

I've never seen this dozer, it belongs to a friend of a friend (my neighbor's son who lives in Austin, Tx. and is here visiting). He tells me that the guy has had it worked on twice by 2 different mechanics and it still won't pull itself. Personally, I think I'd be looking at the clutches. He tells me that the Deere dealers and most if not all the good mechanics around there won't even look at it because it's too old. He's tired of messing with it and wants to put a new tranny in it, so I'm just trying to find one for him. Keith
