  1. Can anyone tell me what pump I have? Does it even have a scavenger valve? I dont see the flat head fitting on the pump... clone, what do you mean by my pump is bypassed? It is missing several fuel lines in that pic that I posted since I had to make new ones I ordered new fuel filters to see if that solves the fuel issue.
  2. Here is a picture of the pump from back when I bought the machine. It is an IH model. I need to do some reading up on past posts about the scavenger valves sticking. What would cause the pressure gauge to show low (practically zero) pressure even if the machine seems to run OK most of the time? I'll try those suggestions and get a more recent picture of the pump/gauge next time I'm back to the farm. I may have to take apart that hour meter just out of curiosity. Peter
  3. I have a few questions on the diesel side of my td6. The pressure gage on the side of the diesel pump has never moved out of the red (low pressure) range, however the dozer still runs on diesel... This was a brand new gage that I installed from Steiner. (IHS532) I have noticed that while using the machine the dozer seems to lack full power at times. If I let the engine idle for a while and then push the lever to full throttle the machine responds with full power. However, if I run the engine at full throttle for a while, the power gradually decreases. It seems to me like the fuel pump can't ke
  4. I have a td6 so not sure if this will work on your machine. You might not have to remove those 6 bolts. Instead, remove the 2 cap bolts on the pivot shaft (bend back the keeper tabs) and slide the whole spring pack forward. This should get you enough clearance to pull engine.
  5. Few pics of the dozer tilt cylinders that I added this weekend.
  6. This is impressive. I hope to restore my td6 someday to this level of detail. How did you keep those parts from getting flash surface rust after you cleaned them? I have used electrolysis and a wire wheel as my main tools in cleaning up old parts - I may have to give the citric acid a try on an old hit n miss engine. I love following along and thanks for the pictures. Seems like you have all the tools and equipment to do a professional job... I am jealous
  7. Yesterday’s project was a tough one
  8. Just a little tree clearing with some fresh hydraulic hoses. Adding tilt soon. Harvest is here.
  9. Hey Guys, I had a hydraulic hose failure the other day while pushin over some cedar trees. They cedars roots dont go too deep because of rock so its easy to push em over a little, then dig up the roots with the blade. Anyway, the suction (low pressure) hose on the front failed and I had to quit for the day. I am going to replace all 4 old hoses with new ones and it got me thinking how nice it would be to add a tilt feature to the blade while I drain and break the system. If I replaced one diagonal link with a tilt cylinder would it work? I will need to do some plumbing and add a cont
  10. Funny I know exactly what you are talking about with the welded gear/rod. I have been in the attic of the building which is relatively unchanged. There are hundreds of file cabinets of drawings and old pictures, abandoned bathrooms/locker rooms, old belt driven equipment, etc. Wish they represented IH more with the decor but unfortunately the Italians own the company now.
  11. I wish I could go back in time. I found these pictures in an old IH Brochure and took me a second to realize that I work in the same building (Burr Ridge IL) and same labs as the 1960 scientists and engineers... I am 24 years old and like to imagine what work was like for these guys back then. One Guy recently retired that worked at IH for over 50 years and was here when the building opened in 1959. Enjoy! Peter Here are some "modern" day pictures: COLD ROOM: - Still has a closet full of those old green coats BUMP TRACK:
  12. There are 12v pos ground alternators available as well if you went that route. I do like to keep an old machine "stock" unless its a basket case like my td6 dozer was. Any pics of new toy? Pete
