  1. Worked great, no linebore just like i thought, plastiguage perfect. I knew it would work!
  2. Got her going last weekend runs great wont let me upload video , blew hydraulic line, fixed, what a cool tractor
  3. Just to clear things up, yes line boring is the recommended and or best procedure, and yes when i worked at Cat i had a technical service advisor checking my work, this post is not a dyy on how to do something, i just thought i would share my little project, i am not expressing in any way that this is the best way, I don’t have the time or money to have this engine line bored , if it blows up i will take pics and share a good laugh, i have no reason to bs anyone that is not my intent. I try to keep my posts “short and sweet “ , apparently this offends people. This is not my intent. Read at your own risk lol! Thanks
  4. Had a crank break, replaced one, not bs . Get over it
  5. I just come on this site to have fun and show my little project , not here for all the bs, i left Facebook ‘cause im done with all the politics, my guy lost, whatever. If you don’t like my post please don’t follow it. Thanks
  6. I have done it before with no issues in C-15 cat engines, also have changed 7 C-15 crankshafts when i worked for the cat dealer , did not line bore, i love it when people are “experts” and have to give their opinion as though their opinion matters , J mech that means you. You sound real mature , i’m gonna guess a Melanial. Thanks
  7. Before you people have a hemorrhage, i have been a professional diesel mechanic at a navistar shop for 22 years , so i may actually know a thing or 2 about this, ive been the top engine guy at the shop since 2008, and have been one of the top at a caterpillar dealership as well, so just calm down, of course im gonna proceed slowly and check things out first, i appreciate the concern , but relax

  9. I intend to plastiguage it, i am not done, i want to replace the main bearings anyway and will prolly rebuild the engine, one thing at a time
  10. absolutely love these tractors, great find!
  11. very impressed, good job great idea, im sure you'll get this nailed down.
  12. anyone have any info on this? is this flywheel for something else? i'm gonna order one from another company as soon as they credit my account. would love to see pics of a flywheel off a 686 with a d310
  13. So i ordered a flywheel off amazon and when i got it the bolts lined up but it appeared too tall , if you placed it on the ground , next to the flywh out of the tractor it sat an inch and a half too high, the 291 crank is flush with the “slip “ and the 358 crank is flush with the “slip” , after some investigation, the 666 bell housing and the 686 are the same part so i would have had to add a spacer plate so my tin and everything else wouldn’t fit, talked with joe Shmitt at redrunrite and he agreed flywheel looked funny so i sent it back
  14. So ive been working on this some more, i added an oil pump off another d358, and resealed the ft cover, the construction engine had the oil pump in the base so i had to remove that and install a different #1 main cap as the oil pump injected oil there and didn’t leave room for the tractor oil pan , hoping this works kinda experimenting
  15. great tractor, they don't build anything as tough today, i would fix for sure, there are used engines all over for this on the internet, great find!
  16. got everything to do it but the flywheel, can't find a used one and new are too expensive yet, had **** finding a 11 inch clutch, had to send mine in to hy capacity and have it rebuilt as no 11 inch clutch cores to be found in the country per several manufacturers, still have to change out the ft cover and oil pump as this engine came out of a payloader and the configuration would not fit between rails , luckily i have another d358 donor engine. been stalled on project as i bought a ww2 jeep ive been fixing up for the kids to drive 'jeff
  17. this looks to be out of a payloader? wow never heard of a dt429 interesting
  18. really great job on this! beutiful tractor, i love the 56 series.
  19. have a bell housing and a flywheel and a 24 volt starter for a 515 payloader with a d 358 , if anyone is interested pm me for details , located in central NY
  20. dt 530 is an electronic truck engine now badged as a 9 liter and the dt570 is a 10 liter, i have worked on them since they came out at a navistar shop, don't know of any that were mechanical, (i have been wrong before), i remember when they came out (dt530) they were mostly used in garbage trucks and had a huge allison world tranny behind them robbing any torque or power they had. customers would constantly complain of no power, of course they usually had the packer full at about 80000 lbs plus , the dt 466 high torque engine at the time seemed to have more power. just my experience with them. was told at school at navistar by the instructor that detroit never had anything to do with the design of dt 466's or dt 530's
  21. ISO a flywheel from a 686 with a 310 diesel in it, there are some new ones online but way too expensive anyone have one to sell ?
  22. really interesting thread, thanks for sharing, nice work done as well, i have a 450 diesel that i use much more than i thought i would really love the way they sound, i sold a 450 gas that i now wish i still had.
  23. wow that is one nice machine, great job!
  24. engine is stuck, base had 3 gallons of rainwater in it, also i have a d358 that needs rebuild on my shop floor, i have several tractors with german engines in them and i really like em , thanks for the input !
