  1. Folks, Back to reality. The TD6 had a hydraulic line leak in a hose or connection. Have to look at that and get it operational again. Othert than that it seems to be starting and functioning. Hope things are good out there! Regards, Chris
  2. Thanks guys, Last shingle on roof! Yea! Regards, Chris
  3. Folks, I did see the TD6 a couple days ago. It was resting comfortable at my daughters house. I have been busy and have not been able to play with any tractors since mid July. The wife has been making me work on a new addition to the property. Yes a toy box for all my big toys. First this scared the heck out of me from a cost stand point. This new shed continues to keep sun=cking up dollars and time. I hired a father and son crew to help me build the shed. I have most of the skills but not the years of building experience. I also provided many hours of sweat equity up to this point too.
  4. Pete, Thanks for the great pictures and update! The dozer looks much more at home on the farm too! I had a track come off once. It went hback on easier that your situation. You were determined! And you got it! Nice work! Regards, Chris
  5. I like your upgrade on the big truck project. Seem for sure the right place to start. Thanks for posting and sharing! Always great pictures too! Pulley on the 6 looks awesome! Regards. Chris
  6. I am impressed! Lots of good information here to keep us on track (pun intended)! I never would have thought about the CW CCW issue with a replacement starter. Glad you got the start working. I had mine of and on many times. Regards. Chris
  7. MTO, I was just was listening to Chris leDoux today and I think he has a couple country songs about girls chewing. Dosent sound good for a guy, east or west of the Alleghenies! Hey If I new that rim was going to look that good I would have kept it. Dang you do good work! Why the heck would I sell something that looks that good! Must have caught me at a bad time? My rims have all been cut up and patched up and split open and welded back together and ........ You must be just living right! How are those stubborn spin out eccentrics coming along? Aren't they just a joy! Another goo
  8. Folks, Drank too many too often when I was a kid. Wife told me I wasn't setting a good example and quit for a long time. Now retired and the kid's kid's kid's are here, I have a beer now and then. Mainly when its hot. Like today welding in the sun, Yea that was good and toasty out there. Every thing in moderation and things seem ok! Regards, Chris
  9. MTO, Yea you could lose money even faster then! Good chatting off color tractors with you today too! Regards, Chris
  10. Lou, Ray, Thanks for the tips on the old dozer hydraulic system. So if there is a filter in the tank how do you get to it? I am not near the machine right now and dont have the manual here. Not sure this is the std tank? I was thinking the pressure would be around the 1000 psi mark. Its on the list of things to do but down there a little ways right now. My brain is on this old shed we are going to try to throw up this year. Hope things are good in RED land! Regards, Chris
  11. Rick, Good old trucks, Hop you dont regret letting them go? I did a similar thing 20 years ago with a antique car. Most days I dont miss it. I just dont sell much but I need to get rid of some projects too. Good work on the TD6 keeping it going! Regards, Chris
  12. Rawleigh, There is no guage in the system. So I would need to plumb one in. Regards, Chris
  13. Folks, Any guidance on the lack of good hydraulics and trouble shooting would help. Neighbor mentioned checking hydraulic filter, but I dont see any. Anyone have a clue if there might be a filter in the system somewhere? These were made before we had spin on/off filters I believe. And I dont see one of those, but maybe there is some type of screen filter in the tank or line?? Regards, Chris
  14. Folks, Some shots of the TD6. Owen was at the controls. We didnt try to move any dirt. Regards, Chris
