  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,

  2. 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

  3. 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,

  4. 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,

  5. 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,

  6. 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,

  7. 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

  8. 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
