  1. International 530 loader

    My 530 has a dipstick for transmission on the right side at the transmission level. DWF
  2. I don't know about Scrapers but IH used Rockford for a lot of loader and dozer transmissions. DWF
  3. Starting KB 5 project

    You should post this on the truck site here on Red Power Forum. Probably have better results. DWF
  4. A friend has a saw mill and was running it too slow. I went out to his place with my 44 Massey and we belted that up to the mill. Another friend was there with us and he was holding a Tach on the opposite end of the blade shaft while the owner was near the blade and I was working the throttle on the tractor. The blade was shaking like crazy and owner was hollering to me to shut it down but the guy on the tach said keep speeding it up. When it got up to over 500 rpm it smoothed right out and I could actually see the blade stand up. Owner said it never cut nice like it did then. Unbelievable to see that happen while speeding it up.

  5. Dayton rims, legal or not?

    Dayton was purchased by Meritor which quickly killed the brand. Dayton was the name most people used for Cast Spoke wheels. I needed a new 22" cast spoke hub for a 95 Ford LTL 9000 a few years ago and most dealers just said "no longer available", they weren't interested in crossing over to any thing else. I found a dealer in Wisconsin (V&H Trucks) that found me a new Gunite hub and they still make them. 20" hub for 22.5 wheels and 22" hub for 24.5 wheels. DWF
  6. Stripped stud on Dayton wheel

    Yes that's what they did and I drove it for thousands of miles with out a problem. DWF
  7. Stripped stud on Dayton wheel

    I had a truck or really two trucks that that happened to. I brought one to a welding job and he oversized the hole in the hub to one size over 7/8". (It was a 3/4 stud) He then cut the put where the wedge goes to 3/4" so you used the same size nuts. I ran that truck for many miles after that with no problems. Had that happen to another truck with 3/4" studs and used a HeliCoil. Never had a problem with that either, but I never used that truck a lot. DWF
  8. Western Star side dump

    Probably for hauling track ballast and that would slide out easily unless frozen. I see the truck can go up and down the tracks. I buy parts from V & H. I have a couple of Ford dumps from the 90's. Very helpful people there. DWF
  9. Pictures of new paint TD7G

    When you put the decals on it's like putting the frosting on the cake. Looks great! DWF
  10. Old Intl Crawler TD???

    Some one must have backed into something with it, something I'd probably do. It might be fixable, but sure doesn't look easy. The belt pulley attachment would be nice to have, don't see many equipped with them. DWF
  11. 175C water pump advice

    I junked my TD15-C a few years ago and kept many good parts. I'm sure I have the water pump as I had replaced it not too long before I quit using it. Is it the same as for the 175C? I know for the 530 loaders the pump would bolt up to the engine but the shaft length was different so the fan would not work on the dozer pump. Why would engineers design crazy things like that? DWF
  12. Anyone own a good sand blast cabinet?

    I bought one from TP tools too. Have had it 9 years, use it often and TP has all the parts and accessories too. DWF
  13. IH TD9 BG tractor crawler

    Yes that is a reversible fan. The one I had came with a blower fan and when I used it in the cold season I had a suction fan to put on. You have to push each blade down and turn it on the fan like he has. You may have to put penetrating oil below the springs if they had been in one position for a while. I had factory side panels for mine and it was nice and toasty in the winter. DWF
  14. IH TD9 BG tractor crawler

    Dirtboys who is a guy who knows a lot about engines and is on this forum says to me to use Power Service additive in the gray bottle. Some guys say to add 2cycle engine oil to the fuel. Years ago I had a TD9B direct drive. It was a great machine. DWF
  15. Dresser Decals

    Associated Graphics, 4439 Louisville St. NE, Canton, Oh 44705, 330-453-3019 I bought a set for my IH TD-15C and a couple of years ago for my Dresser 520C loader. Good quality and fair price. DWF
