BTD-6 and TD-6 differences
Posted 24 April 2009 - 03:30 AM
I think a lot of parts will interchange & some will not.A lot of BTD6 parts have a 700/701/702 prefix...
for example the sprocket drive oil seal is # 702991 R91 .
The TD6 shop manual will be very helpful for you.Let me know if you need part numbers..I have both books.I also have some BTD6 parts here.
My favourite IH is the BTD6...great small dozer,with straight diesel engine.Drott versions were also made.
There are nice BTD6 pics on the Classic Machinery Network site....recommended viewing...

What are the differences between a BTD-6 and a TD-6??
would a TD-6 workshop manual work for a BTD-6?
"FCUB59113" which country are you from?
The BTD-** crawlers were all made in Britain ( B = British ) and exported to many British Commonwealth countries.
The engine, BD-264, was also used in some of the larger British IH farm tractors ( Farmall Super BMD. Farmall B-450 )
The BTD-6 was built from 1953 to 1975 and went through several updates.
The Serial Number would help identify its build year!

The later A100 Drott was also fitted with the BD264 engine,& maybe the 554 tractor too.These engines really needed their glow plugs....

No,I don't have a PDF file for the BTD6 parts book.Try Plough Book Sales or eBay...they do appear there.I can scan a few pages if needed.
For repairs,the TD6 shop manual will be very helpful anyway.
I have a belt pulley that will fit the TD6/BTD6,plus water pump,fan,gearbox parts,etc.
Post a pic of your Uncle's BTD6...we don't see many on this site.

JimInOz do you have a .PDF of the BTD-6 Shop manual??
Michael Halsall I live in New Zealand
The serial # is 6248
Serial Number should make it 1957. Rated @ 50 HP
The tractor's grille should resemble a Farmall M or W-6 farm tractor.
Your tractor should have a C.A.V. fuel pump rather the American Bosch used on the U.S. tractors.
