  1. I have a chance to buy a T340 with the Drott 4 in 1. $1500 might take it home. Won’t steer, but I’ve researched that pretty heavily and am hoping an adjustment will make it usable. I do have some questions. Several hydraulic leaks, but hey, it’s an old machine. Hydraulics seem strong. Engine runs decent for it’s age, I believe. How would you rate this undercarriage? One of the idlers has some damage, but might be usable. I have attached some pictures.

That being said, I guess it's time to repower; by time i get a block and all the other parts for the gasser I should replace in the process, I could probably find a running D312 diesel ($2000 from Albilene Machine from a 686). I'd thought of doing it anyway but didn't want to change around g
