I have an older John Deere 450 dozier with
dry steering clutches. I recently had the right side clutches and brake bands replaced
and everything worked good for a while.

I have removed the 2 side plates and have adjusted the brake bands as required and now
when I pull left lever the whole machine stops.
Sometimes it will catch and steer a little and, when in reverse, it still steers as normal most of the time.Sometimes I hear a
little grinding sound when releasing left
steering handle.

I have also removed top plate under seat to
watch what happens on the left side when I pull lever back. The spinning drum stops and so does the right track therefore stopping the machine.

The 3/4 square plug on both sides have not been removed to do any adjusting. Can some
one please tell me if this a necessary adjustment that might help my steering problem and just what does this adjustment do that the brake band adjustment doesn't.

Thank you.
Cliff

The other side has quit driving.. Maybe due to no free-play in clutch or oil in clutch.. Look it over with a flashlight to see if water or oil is in housing..Or possibly just an adjustment..

Sorry..I re-read your post.. It seems that something is either out of adjustment or something has come apart causing the right side to quit driving. Throw out bearing failure or pressure plate bolts left loose..or adjustments left loose..

Roy thank you for reply.

Getting into more detail-- some times when I am traveling forward I can
pull left lever and right track stops then do same and right track stops and do same and dozier turns left.
Also when in reverse, and pull left lever, right track works perfect and spins
dozier around just fine.Occasionally in reverse and pull left lever everything
stops like in forward.
