  1. Mogulman, Your work and skill level and attention to detail is amazing. Now understanding your roots in a museum it makes good sense. I don't check in here much sine my TD6 went down the road. But this was well worth stopping in to see your progress! Its going to be a awesome T6 for sure! Regards, Chris
  2. Looking for pistons, rings and sleeves for TD6....D248.... presently 3 and 7/8 bore, can go to 4.0 bore I think.

    any help please Dennis Best. Dennisbest4503@sbcglobal.net

  3. You sure are doing it right. I like your approach! What a lot of work to take it down to the castings and bring it back! Awesome! Thanks for the pictures! Regards, Chris
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. AKloadstar, Looking real good with the color combo! I like it! Thanks for the updates! Regards, Chris
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. TD18, What does that weigh stripped down? about 4 ton? Also back to a building question: What do you have on your inside walls? They looks clean and bright. I am still building walls That i think I need inside the shop. Regards, Chris
  11. td18, Wow does that looks sharp! Almost makes me want to rip the loader off mine and rebuild it. Maybe someday?? I am getting my shop dried in for winter. Not sure the TD6 will get in there soon? You sure have done a nice job on the restoration work on your T6! Fantastic! Thanks for the pictures and inspiration. Regards, Chris
  12. 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
  13. td-18, Yes. Thanks! I have plans for a 10 foot ceiling height and 9 foot doors. My building is very near my house and another building and I dont think 12 foot eaves would look right. The only thing I have that would not fit in at this time is our camper. Its going to have to set outside! That is a very nice building you have! I was telling a friend about your work. He has my TD6 at his place and has found some better undercaraige parts that he would like to switch over. We will see. He did adjust the engine drive clutch, which had to be a real challange of standing on his head! Regards, Chris
  14. td-18, Wow 10 more projects! Awesome. Building questions: What size are your overhead doors? What is your ceiling height? I am working on a building design. Yours is nice and clean and organized! Regards, Chris
  15. James, Looks like another project! Congratulations! Looking forward to the progress! Regards, Chris
