  1. It’s the higher sn number. I just finished the job I was on with it. Plan now is to pull converter and rebuild and have pump and cooler checked
  2. I’ve not figured it out. I still suspect pump because it pulls and pushes and don’t slip any but after a couple hours when everything gets warm(hot) the clutch pressure will be lower than when u first start running it. First clutch gauge stays in the edge of the black to the right of normal and as everything heats up it falls back to the left of the normal. Talked to a guy from blue ridge and he suggested looking at the charge pump first( easier to get off) and have it checked and if that don’t fix it pull converter and rebuild it and while converter is off take oil cooler off and make sure it isn’t stopped up too.
  3. If I have oil bypassing in either transmission or converter is there any way to pinpoint which 1?
  4. My engine temp barely gets in the green on gauge. I put a manuel gauge on converter today and it would get to 230 on a push but drop back to 200 or so after push was over. I think it’s heats up too much but don’t know why. I’m thinking the pump on torque converter is weak but that’s just a suspicion. It pulls fine and don’t slip but will get warm. As for the engine I don’t think the thermostat works. Believe it’s hung open. Only concern I have is it’s cool weather here now. When it gets summer and the outside temp is 90+ I’m gonna cook something
  5. Blue Ridge Tractor in Benton Illinois is a Dressta dealer and very knowledgeable on the international and dresser equipment and will help u find anything u need. Chattanooga dozer parts in Rozwell Ga are very helpful too on the older stuff. Both top notch dealers to work with.
  6. Found some old parts boxes and the cans still have tapered bearings in them.
  7. Does this mean anything under 250 is acceptable?? Maybe a dumb question but as I aid earlier I’ve never had 1 run this warm with the style gauge that’s on it so I don’t know what’s safe
  8. Well to be honest all the others the gauge will stay right in middle of the green and only move up a little past 12 o clock on a long heavy push but no where near the check zone so I’ve never been concerned or had a reason to check the temps on them. I’m gonna get a gauge that has temp numbers on it instead of green and black so I will know what temps are. Just thought it was odd the oil going from pump to filters is hotter than oil coming from the converter going in oil cooler
  9. Hey got this machine up and running and it runs good. Only concern is torque converter temp gauge says runs all the way to far right. Not out of the green but I think u had a long hard push it would get past the green. Doesn’t slip or stop pushing just indicates too hot. I shot all hoses with a heat gun and 190 is hot as I can find a hose at converter but the big hose coming from pressure pump to filters is 215 on inlet side of filters and 190 on exit side. Help
  10. Found this lighter at an antique store and thought was neat.
  11. 500 dollars and they Galion sign would be yours.
  12. Part number 260277R6. Does anyone need 1? Supposed to be new. It is still in a crate but is rusty from moisture getting to it.
  13. Does the sprocket attempt to turn?? Pull the oil out of final drive and see if it’s full of metal. Right side works fine?
  14. This dozer has the 817 engine and the anaroid valve on the back of the injection pump is not connected to the intake manifold. Is this something that really needs hooked up?? It runs really well and don’t smoke much at all
  15. Got the hoses changed in the rear ended for the steering and put all back together. Tried it out and the steering is good. Machine sat for 11 years due to a blown hose
