Red Power Parts Quality
Posted 17 January 2012 - 09:17 PM
I am in the process of an inframe overhaul of a DT-361 in a TD 15b farm dozer. (... lucky me.)
It seems "red power" brand are the only sleeve and piston kits available, Malhe / Clevite is discontinued.
I assume the red power brand has no connection with forum.
RedPower brand is owned by Howard Enterprises of Lynn IN.

My manual shows a difference between the 361 and 407 regarding the sleeve installing tool and sleeve protrusion.
I am going to check with the case/IH dealer for the tooling.
I will give the bores a good going over my bore gage.
The engine has been previously overhauled and looks like they did a good job, however the pistons look prefect from the rings down and like crap (scrapes, gouges, chunks of piston gone) from the rings up.
The dozer apparently sat unused for a number of years and I'm guessing the engine was "stuck" until the someone decided to fire it up and sell it.
Yep, I bought it.
