  1. Injection pump seals

    I have a note that I printed off about 10 years ago, someone with more pump knowledge than I have, and that is the number that they gave. said it is only available from CNH, which I think is Case New Holland, but who knows by now. Hope this helps. George
  2. TD-18 known as Blaine

    So when do we start torching holes in the track pads? Time is getting short before the snow flies. George
  3. 5 is easier then one

    Looks to me like you are planning a big cat train tour this winter. Work is looking good. George
  4. My new second favorite tool

    Like I said, the right side is right full of pine needles and what all. check out the square headed stove bolts right above the hole. Makes you wonder who worked on these machines years ago and why they thought this was a good idea. George
  5. My new second favorite tool

    About half of the bolts holding the big cover over the steering clutches have square heads on them. I bet those are special "break away' bolts that International supplied at extra cost. I know they will "break away" when I start taking them off. And the round cover over the right steering clutch was off, so that side is right full of critter stuff, so I don't think much out of that side will be salvageable. Will get a photo so you can see what I mean. George

    If you mean the return springs on top of the deck, no. This machine sat under the white pine trees for 10 to 15 years, so when I picked it out of there, there was at least 6 inches of pine needles covering up the deck, holding moisture and rusting everything up. Hooks on the ends of the springs broke off as soon as I tried to take them off. George
  7. My new second favorite tool

    After I wrote the reply and posted it, I remembered those round covers, and figured that may have been what you were talking about. I will look, but am pretty sure all of my machines came with just holes. That was the problem with them, thumb nuts, that people would not get tight enough to hold and then they would fall out, or the threads would rust up and they would never get put back on the way they should be. Will let you know what I find after the sun comes up. George
  8. My new second favorite tool

    No luck on the lights, out of 3 machines I only had one light that I am going to mount on one of the two TD9's that I still have and I need another light to match that one. I need a better explanation of what you call a port cover, never heard of anything called that. George
  9. My new second favorite tool

    Yes, busy taking apart 3 old crawler chassis. By the way, you can see my old second favorite tool in the second picture. 12 pound splitting maul. It failed to do the job so it is now my number 3 favorite tool, and of course the fire wrench will always be my number 1 favorite. I am getting to use the fire wrench quite a bit, cutting these 3 old T9's up getting them ready for the scrap man. Saving anything that is good or rare, someone may need them someday. This one had the low compression gasoline/kerosene distillate engine in it, and you can see by the final drive it was a narrow gauge too. Tracks on it were like new so I took them off and put them on my TD91 dozer about 15 years ago. George
  10. I should have done this years ago. I spent two days pounding on the top of the pistons in this T9 engine,trying to get them to let loose. Not concerned about damaging anything as most of this is going in the scrap pile. I finally broke down and made one of KoO's starter tools. With a 5 foot long 2 inch pipe it all popped loose on the first pull. Thanks Joey. George
  11. TD6 Final failure

    To remove that pivot shaft, you have to crawl under the machine. There will be a bolt that you remove that is holding two locks, one of which is around a big nut. After you get the locks off, loosen the big nut and then turn the pivot out of the main frame case. That pivot will have a cross cut in the end of it. George
  12. TD6 Dozer/Loader

    IH called this "curved bar" a diagonal brace. It holds the track frame in alignment, front to back. Think of a triangle, one point being where it hooks to the pivot shaft in the middle rear, one point being where the studs were broken off and the third there the track frame hooks to the pivot bar at the sprocket. Drott loaders did not have these diagonal braced, they replaced the spring in the front with a square bar that bolted to the track frames on each side. I was surprised to see that your loader used the diagonal braces, but that was the choice of the manufacturer who made the loader attachment. I also checked some wheel studs off a Budd wheel that I have and they are 3/4 course thread, 2 1/2 inches long, but I am sure that there may be some wheel studs out there that are the right size and length for you. I also checked McMaster Carr and they have the right size studs you need, grabe 8, but are course on both ends which the wheel studs would be anyway. George

    I am willing to bet that it will come off there fairly easy. If 3 of the studs have been broken off then it has probably been moving around just a slight bit on those two pins. Take the connection off the back at the pivot shaft, and the remaining nut and get in there with a couple of pry bars and work it off. If I remember right the studs are course thread where they go into the rear spring casting and fine thread for the nuts. George
  14. H4 mag,,,timing of rotor gears

    Service manual says to line up the "L" mark on the big gear with the mark on the small gear. The "L" mark is for counter clockwise rotation. If the mag is use in something with clockwise rotation, you use the "R" mark, but it says to use the "L". George
  15. 1951 td6 clutch removal help please

    See, I told you I wasn't sure, but as soon as Louie said take out the grease nipple I remembered that had to be done too. Thanks for adding that in there. George
