  1. Looks like an awesome project! Take your time and enjoy it. One of the things I enjoyed about my T6 restoration is that the gas engine was less complex and managable for one of my first projects. Please keep us posted on your progress.
  2. When I restored my steering clutches on my T6, I made certain to remove the scale from the disk and they looked like yours do. I did clean the fiber disk too but take great percaution with reguard to Abestos exposure, I did it outside with a resperator and atempted to stay up wind. After many years the cleaned old parts still work great, but I make sure to move the tractor every few months to ensure they dont freeze up again.
  3. Thank you so much for the detail. I buy from Mcmaster Carr all the time for work.
  4. Awesome job on the brakes. I need to learn how you replaced the brake lining. I need to doe that too on my T6.
  5. Thanks for posting all the pictures of your T6, I really enjoyed them. I have a few more that I found you might find of interest. One is of the inside of the sliding gear shifter cover. I put two small PTO switches and two small tabs on the inside of the cover with an insulated stud near the shifter that activates the back up beeper in either high or low reverse. The next pic was the day I brought it home. I friend of mine who is a dairy farmer told me that If I got it moving in the field where it was and could get it on his trailer, he'd haul it home for me. The last picture shows the crude operator cab, loose battery, temporary tankand electric pump. It was a little scary because at the time I realy didn't know how to operate the crawler and it was in poor condition, but no one got hurt.... To this day I can't beleive considering the shape it was in that I got it moving. Just a quick comment on the steering clutch rebuild, with the fuel tank and seat removed there is just enough room to stand on the floor inside the attachment to confortably work on the steering clutches. (didn't have to spend much time on my head)
