  1. TN, Folks, Yes I think this machine would have went for scrap or be still setting in the shed at my uncles old place. With the help of a lot of folks on here and brute strength and stubbornness we got it back to functioning unit. Its going to a good home near by so I can go run it if I need to. Thanks for the positive comments on the shop too. I have been working on a forklift even though its pretty cold in there it's out of the wind! Regards, Chris
  2. Hardtail, Dav, Folks, Yes the back is almost as good as new, that was Thanksgiving 2017. Adding some things in the shop to allow for some lifting. Jib crane with electric hoist and a F40 (Allis-Chalmers) fork lift. Working on the fork lift is just as challenging as the TD6! Found this in the wilds of Albion. Drug it home. Am switching it over to pump gas. Money pit just like the TD6. So its my newest project. Currently having a shop rebuild the tilt cylinders. Drained and replenished the coolant today. Fighting some nuts and bolts but most of the machine has a typica
  3. Folks, I am in the process of selling the TD6. Yes its going to a friend Matt who is in some of the pictures. He has a lot of IH equipment so it will have a good home and not far away. I really appreciate all the help I received here on Red Power Forum concerning this old loader! I learned a lot and had a lot of fun and one back surgery form working on this machine too! Regards, Chris
  4. Merry Christmas from our family to you and yours! My red machine rests this time of year. Hoping to get it operational next spring with replacement of leaking hydraulic lift cylinder hose. Regards, Chris
  5. td-18, I know this is not what your looking for but thought I would share some pictures of this heavy grill guard on my TD6. [img]https://i.imgur.com/MvJT55d.jpg[/img] [img]https://i.imgur.com/NoKfODl.jpg[/img] [img]https://i.imgur.com/0gaNBpw.jpg[/img] Regards, Chris
  6. Mogulman, Wow! You are all the way in on this 6! Nice work on the machine! It really looks pretty darn good before you started taking it apart! Not sure I have it in me to take one apart that far. But they sure are cute as a button with no extra blades or buckets on them! Thanks for posting all the great pictures too! Merry Christmas! Regards, Chris
  7. td18, That is a project you can be very proud of! Hope it makes it to the cover of some nice IH magazine too! It looks amazing! Regards, Chris
  8. AKloadstar, Looking real good with the color combo! I like it! Thanks for the updates! Regards, Chris
  9. Peiro, So glad that your wife was ok! Tractors can be fixed! Sounds like your going to tear into it next spring. You will find the problem then. That picture from Mike. There is no load of wood that is that important! Regards, Chris
  10. Tony, You may have inspired others to tackle some of this old machinery also! Exceptional work prior to getting the paint applied! Looks really good from the paint shop. Thanks for posting Regards, Chris
  11. Dan, Great story about the rescue of this machine! Love the pictures and the thought that nuts and bolts are still removable. We have instant lock tite weather here. infact Locktite should look into using water, salt and drastic temperatur changes in their products to secure fasteners Sure works here in NW PA. Looking forward to your adventures. One thing you have is large equipment to work on large equipment. A huge plus! Regards, Chris
  12. Rawleigh, That is a great Idea! Thanks for the suggestion on the inline gage. Found the TD6 today. Yep hose going to the left lift cylinder has a hole. Not going to be easy to remove. Need to drain and pull the hydraulic reservoir. Havent done that before so a new adventure. Also the lift cylinder may need to be disconnected at the back to allow the cylinder body to move forward to allow access to the bad hydraulic hose connection . It started right up on gas and moved over to diesel easily. Tested steering clutches. All good. Regards,
  13. Folks, Ok I just glanced at the views for this thread: 62.5k views ??? Really? Folks must be using it to fall asleep at night or something ?? I think I may go look at the old TD6 and try to cipher out this leaky hydraulic line issue. I dread that because I am sure it will not be a easy, or fun project! We need some picture of it anyway. And I need to bring my Allis D17 home too. Hope things are good in Red land! Regards, Chris
  14. td18, Thanks for the info on the shop walls and the weight too. I need to go start and tarp my TD6 for the winter. Great looking tractor! Sure is a inspiration! Regards, Chris
  15. That is not the ideal spot for a track to come off! Hope that worked out ok? Looked like it snapped back on? Regards, Chris
