So I've got 2 TD-14 carcasses to clean up. What parts are irreplaceable/worth saving or selling? 1st one is mostly complete (no sheet metal/radiator but pretty much everything else) but sat for something like 40 years in the mud and is more or less solid rust. 2nd has the engine in parts, no tracks or one final and is basically the trans casting with parts on it.
The rusty one has a decent u/c I was planning to keep for my other good TD-14. Figured keep both engines/parts and the finals since I've heard they are known failure points. What about the trans/bevel gear/housing/etc?
Most of this stuff is rusty enough to probably be questionably useful, but I really hate scraping parts that might be useful. On the flip side, I'm moving in a year or so and need to get stuff cleaned up. The pivot shafts also look like they'd be useful for chunks of big round stock but again I hate to start cutting the trans casting up getting them out.
