  1. TD9 final drive removal how to.

    Ok, they are a bit tricky to get into, I might pick up a stubby ratchet to get in there better. Thanks
  2. TD9 final drive removal how to.

    Maybe I don’t know the exact bolts you mean??? I was out tounight and pulled the four bolts that held the steering clutch flange on, and now have that removed along with the bearing carrier. I removed the bolts on the out side of chassis/frame/tub but it seems to be attached pretty good. I do notice there are 3 bolts on the inside housing that look to be holding the housing to the frame. It’s kinda hard to explain, but do they need to be removed by reaching through the opening of the hole from the steering flange??? Thanks
  3. TD9 final drive removal how to.

    Thanks hector, I know the bolts your talking about! So if I remove those the steering clutch flange will be free to pull out, and the rest of the housing could come out complete? Thanks
  4. Hi all, I am wanting to swap out the final drive from a parts machine to another. The housing on my final drive busted out when what looks like a bearing fell apart, and some balls got picked up by the bull gear and wedged between the gear and housing busting the cast. I have a book, and can follow the instructions easy enough step by step, however my question is: Do I have to pull all the guts out of the housing to remove the entire housing from the tub/chassis, or can the entire housing be removed without gutting it and removing the bolts holding it together at the tub/chassis?? I assume it’s gonna have to be tore all apart but thought I’d ask before getting to the point of no return. The steering clutches have been removed from the parts machine, but the flanges that the clutches bolt to remain in the compartment. Also they are both wide track machines. Thanks
  5. TD6 Magneto firing order

    The firing order is 1-3-4-2 with 1 being closest to your seat. I believe the rotor turns counter clockwise on the Diesel engines. The mag itself continuesly makes spark, and you just need to be sure that the spark is heading out of the cap in the correct order to the correct plug. Technically 1 could be at any one of the ports in the cap as long as the rest follow in order 3-4-2 in the counter clockwise direction. I belive this is correct, I’m going off a bit of memory work, so if someone else confirms this I’d feel better. Last thing I want to do is steer someone in the wrong direction. Hope it helps
  6. Hi everyone! I’m working on the hydraulics on my TD9, and I’m wondering if anyone knows if there is a overhaul kit available for the bucyrus Erie cylinders? Thanks adam.
  7. Why yellow?

    This is a guestion that I've been thinking for a long time, and I'm sure there is a thousand different reasons. Why did they paint over the IH red with yellow?? I understand for construction on road ways to be brighter, but why not paint them yellow first? And who was painting them yellow if IHC wasn't? Adam
  8. TD9/bucyrus Erie hydraulic question.

    Thanks for the help. Yes this is a tractor engine, I should have mentioned that. I will go with the crank pump
  9. Hello everybody. Im working on a motor swap on my td9, and I've hit a road block with the hydraulic pumps. The motor I pulled out has the pump dive off the crank, and the motor I'm putting in has the pump off the timing gear behind the mag. My question is this. Can I run the bucyrus hydraulics with the pump off the timing gear? Will it give it enough flow? I just hate the thoughts of pulling off the mag and replacing the hydraulic pump with that spacer on a engine that runs nice and timed already. I know it's not "that" big of a deal but..... Another option I've thought is to put the crank pump on and use it that way, and put a hose looping the in and out on the pump on the timing timing gear full of oil??? This is not the prettiest, but would it work??? Thanks adam
  10. Dash lights

    Thanks Dan, I wish the picture quality was better. I still haven't gotten back to my dash lights, but I'm having another issue that's got me stumped. When I turn the key to start all I get is a single click/clunk sound from under the hood all the auxiliary power seems to work, but nothing to the starter. Now if I try a few times turning the key on and off something finally contects and the starter begins turning the engine over. Things I have done is changed the alternator, and changed the cylenoide on the start, as well I have cleaned cables on the battery, as well as the connection at the ground. The battery is not brand new, and once the engine is turning over it doesn't seem to be short on any cranking power. I kinda wonder if it's something right at the key??? Any advice on this issue would be great!! Adam

    It ended up being a beautiful day so I ended up taking the truck into town for a little cruze and to the car wash instead of tearing the dash apart. There will be lots of cold days yet to come for locking myself in my little shop yet I'm sure lol. Here is a couple pics.

    Thanks for the info guys, I will try track down bad ground like GT posted, reading over it carefully a couple times I think I got a good grip on how to do that. And yes Dan my key does have some damage and almost feels sticky when turning it. I bet there is corrosion going on in there. I hoping to spend some time on it this weekend and let you all know what going on. As for the key thing what do I do there? Maybe I should just take things one step at a time but if I'm taking the dash apart again might as well do it all! Also not as important but does anyone know if there anyplace to get a new dash top (the foam part that covers evrything) mine is pretty cracked up and deteriatrd from sun/weather. Also Dan I seen a pic of you 1 ton on another tread and that's a sweet truck you got there!! Thanks
  13. Dash lights

    Thanks GT, i think it's a ground thing to but do the dash lights ground through the panel and into the metal dash via the screws on on my 74? I feel like I might be opening a can of worms and getting in over my head on this.

    I got my bulb holders today and I was able to get them all replaced, but I don't have complete sucsess. The lights do come on but they blink on and off. If I tap the gauges that also causes them to blink on and off. I did use dialetric grease on all the connection, but I was unable to replace the crappy nuts with brass ones. I did however remove them all and put grease on and tightened them back down. I also have a funny eletrical issue going on at the same time. When I first start the truck there is no Eletric power in the cab eg. No heater fan, radio, or gauges. All I have to do is giggle the gear shifter (automatic tranny) and evrything comes on. But dash lights still blink in and out. Not to sure where to start with all this??

    I will defenatly let you guys know how I make out. As for now I'm at a stand still waiting for bulb holders to show up
