I found a 350B dozer the other day and the owner wants to sell it. It has 2600 hours, six-way blade and was owned by the DNR. He hadnít used it in a couple of years we put a battery in it and with a little either it started right up. Everything works as it should; he said one of the clutches was weak. Once it started I let it warm up and check everything out. The left clutch was the bad one. He said make an offer. So whatís it worth? How much is it going to cost to fix? Are 350B hard to work on? What are the good, bad, and the ugly with the 350B?

I can tell you that it will probably cost you between $1100 and $1800 for parts for one steering clutch, depending upon whether you go OEM or aftermarket. That's assuming you're replacing the pressure plate, friction disks and plates, and brake band. As to what it's worth or how hard it is to fix we'll let someone else weigh in on that one.

The track will have to be split on the culprit side..Sprocket , final drive will have to be removed..Once the final drive is removed , the steering clutch is attached to the inside of the final drive..Disassemble the clutch and check for water or oil infiltration and repair where ever it came from..Many times clutches go bad from not being adjusted properly [slipping]..Sometimes clutch plates can be reused if not pitted..If the steel plates are pitted , throw 'em away..Don't guess about usability of pressure plate and clutch discs..If any question , replace them..Change both bearings[throwout and pilot between 2 shafts]..Seal up the castings with an anerobic plastic gasket between final drive and clutch housing..Don't use silicone sealant there..Be sure to adjust the finger height on the pressure plate..I've done a few in my lifetime, if no unforseen problems, can be done in about 6 hours for both sides...

Last year at our NYS surplus equipment auction a 350 gas with a 6 way blade and almost new undercarriage brought $4500. Two years ago one with a diesil engine and the crankcase full of diesil fuel brought $6900. I have two 350"s in my area that I have been maintaining for the last 20 years. The steering clutches are a reguler maintenance issue(we have any operators that don"t own the machine) and come apart fairly easily as far as dozer repairs go. You might be able to just do external ajustment and stop a sliping seering clutch. Reseting clutch finger height is often all you need to do to get a slipping clutch to work again. If you are rebuiling the clutch replace the fiber disks with the bronse faced metal ones. 350"s are good machines and will work circles around the old two bangers for the same money invested.

Parts aren't that spendy, steering clutch kit will run about $650 with fiber discs, couple hundred more for metallics.

Holly crud, that's a small hole above the brakes, can the brakes be changed through the top access plates??? If so how.
Thanks
