  1. TD14 Bendix spring, possible solution

    Same here, could not see the photos. And I was interested as I have 3 or 4 old starters that will be going in the scrap and if the springs are that rare and I have one, I sure would hate to find out later that I threw it away. George
  2. TD 6 compression release lever

    Yup, that is the spring. If it is not attached, the part that it is hooked to on the bottom just swings down on the big bolt to the left. That is the lock lever. thanks Sugarmaker George
  3. International 250 Loader

    The large spring and cylinder next to the seat is part of the "Hydro-cushion" that Drott put on their loaders, it cushions the hydraulics and supposed to take the stress off the machine when operating. It also is supposed to help when digging with the bucket, the big cylinder will load up the spring and then the spring returns the pressure to the hydraulics during break out. I have never tried or heard of anyone taking the spring off to take the cylinder out. I have no idea how much preload is on that big spring, as there are four long bolts, about an inch diameter that hold it down. There is a 1/4 turn shut off in the hydraulic line just before it goes into the bottom of the cylinder, and if it is leaking bad you can turn it off and eliminate the hydro cushioning. I don't see that it makes a whole lot of difference. George
  4. TD 6 compression release lever

    The linkage behind the carburetor is where the locking mechanism for the lever is. there is a short spring that holds it engaged until you over ride it by throwing the lever up. If the spring is missing or unhooked it will not stay engaged. George

    That is a fine looking machine. And it looks like you have the correct operator sitting in the seat. Good luck with it. George

    The brass nut behind the driver is a packing nut. Yours looks a little different than on an original. It threads into the big nut that holds the bearing and the pulley on. Tighten the brass nut a LITTLE, like 1/8 turn and then run it to see if it stops the leak. If not turn it another 1/8. the inside of that brass nut is tapered and there is a water pump packing inside so it squeezes the packing down against the shaft. If that is a rebuilt pump then it was just put together snug on assembly so it needs to be tightened up until the leak stops. If it bottoms out then the nut can be taken off and more packing added.

  7. Going for it

    I don't see where it is connected to anything else, just an in and out for the exhaust. Possible homemade spark arrestor? George
  8. Steel plate "may" work, but the clutch assembly has to move over towards the trans as the drum fit over the drive plate on the other side. I find if you get a strain on the assembly, then grab the strap and rock it back and forth works well too, click it up a couple more notches and then rock it again. George
  9. 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

    So when do we start torching holes in the track pads? Time is getting short before the snow flies. George
  11. 5 is easier then one

    Looks to me like you are planning a big cat train tour this winter. Work is looking good. George
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. My new second favorite tool

    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
  15. 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
