  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. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. AKloadstar, Looking real good with the color combo! I like it! Thanks for the updates! Regards, Chris
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  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. 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
  13. 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
  14. James, Looks like another project! Congratulations! Looking forward to the progress! Regards, Chris
  15. Tj01, Nice work on your new WD. The cultivators look complete. Here is one of my AC's Regards, Chris
  16. Tony, Just checked in to see how you and the truck are doing! Its AWESOME! Thanks for bringing us up to date and posting the pictures of the little red binder! Regards, Chris
  17. Charlie, I had missed this because I am usually over in the construction section. Your getting the right folks over in this section to help you. I give you a pat on the back for getting the broken bolts drilled and re-tapped. For not having much experience you sure are getting after it. If it has gas, spark and compression it will run. Maybe not good but it should fire! My TD6 a cousin to your tractor has given me many new learning experiences too. Wishin you the best with your new toy! Regards, Chris
  18. Rick, I have never pulled the engine on one of these but my best guess is that it is the correct way to remove and replace the ring gear. I would get the new one too. Yes pricy, but what isnt now days. A month ago it cost $100 just to fill up my pick up truck. All that work you want it to function when its supposed to!:) That bolt you have in the back hole is always a tough one for me to get started. Just not much room back in there. If your starter checks out you saved the price of the ring gear. I put more than $300 in starter repairs. Had to get a new armature. Thanks for the update and pictures. I have been busy cutting wood for making syrup next spring, mowing lawn and thinking about building a little shed for some of my junk. Regards, Chris
  19. Tj01, The painting process can be a project! I have done 3 of these WD series tractors and they have a lot of parts! Come over and join us on the Allis forum also. Folks would love to see your tractors and projects. Regards, Chris
  20. Dennis, Your moving right along with the Fordson! Thanks for the updates and pictures. Regards, Chris
  21. Tj01, Hope things go well with the Allis. I have a soft spot for these too. I have had 6 in the last 6 years. Some better than others when they came home. Some getting a refurb. Regards, Chris
  22. Rick, Good pictures of the '6' in the snow doing some work! Nice to have a machine that can help with tasks like that too. Thanks for sharing the pictures! Regards, Chris
  23. Morning, You might get some more comments if you posted in the construction section. Yes you need some parts. They are out there. There is a salvage yard with a TD6 near Pittsburgh, closer to Zelienople. Burg Implement. Try them. Good luck with your project. Regards, Chris
  24. Tony, Those knotters look complex! About like rebuilding a external engine! Thanks for the updates and pictures. Regards, Chris
  25. Dennis, Your brazing work looks as good as any I have seen. Should finish up real nice! I have no Idea what happened to the Fordson. Its long gone and so are the folks that knew anything about it. I assume it may have been a early one maybe a 17 or 18? I may have another picture of it running a thresher. The grandparents moved up here from WV about 1915 ish. Regards, Chris
