  1. Hello, I was recently gifted a TD6, and need to find some information about it. I was told it was a 1948, however the serial number on the plate is so worn down that I cannot make it out. Is there other spots where the serial number would be? I was told that it does not have the original engine in it so the casting dates on the engine would not be helpful. I also need help identifying the engine, I have attached a photo of some of the numbers on the head. Fuel (diesel): I was told that my crawler does not have the original engine in it, so I need help with how the fuel lines are run. I have a Bosch injector pump. Currently I have it set up so fuel from the tank goes to the primary filter, then to the delivery pump, then to the water seperator, and then delivered to the injector pump- is this correct? The injector pump return is obviously plunmbed back into the tank. Fuel (gas): this is just gravity fed from the tank into the carborator, correct? Spark: I have a battery ignition system on the gas side, but I am having trouble peicing it together. Is it set up like a regular distributor system on an automobile? I understand there is a “manifold switch” that cuts power to the coil when the engine is being run on the diesel side, but I cannot seem to find it. Would it be appropriate to just run a switch to the dashboard and use that to open the circuit when I am running on diesel? Thank you in advance for the help, I am very excited to see this thing run!

  3. I picked up this tractor six months or so ago. Had some almost immediate transmission problems which saw the tractor split not once but twice. Finally the second time around the guy knew what he was doing and it now runs fine. While the roof was off I took the opportunity to paint it and some of the loader arm. I know it's not the right red but it looks better than the existing green. Plan is to get rid of all the green with red and depending how much is left in the red tin do the original tractor parts red and white as well. And hopefully stickers after paint so I know what lever does what ?.

  4. Sucks on that corn Troy, nothing more discouraging then to put hard work into something that doesn’t amount to much. I also give kids rides when I can, nice to see how happy it makes them! Took a 2 year old in the mower a couple months ago with his dad, he was all smiles and his dad says now he wants to drive everything ?

  6. Anson, I went over and did my best with some of those questions on the 150 hp Case thread. Now, while I was overdosed on steam at Andover, I had a root canal with calcific metamorphisis just last Thursday. And I got the flu or something very close to it when I got home. I was sick as a sick dog for two days. Now, I know this is too darn much information. But to make it so I could sleep for two nights, I was taking some of my Oxycodone from my palate tumor of a couple months ago. That stuff sure is constipating... Nuff said. Now about trolling with steam engines and them being babe magnets, I don't know what to do to help you out, buddy? Maybe finish your whustle and take it to a steam show then blow the heck out of it? Gary?
