  1. Redwood good afternoon. Would you have the cover for steering brake access hole under the TD9?td9 brake adjuxting nut.jpg

      No, they were missing on my Donner tractor and the steering clutches are completely frozen.  I wanted the drums as they were in better shape than mine, but gave up after 4 hours of work and no hope of getting them out.  Purchased a good set of used drums from a wreaking yard in Stockton CA. 

  2. Hector you are correct it does have a 3 band brake. Why would the adjusting bolt be up against the bulkhead? Until I can loosen the adjusting bolt, I am at a stand still. The brakes are frozen to the steering clutch drum and with the engine stuck, the TD9 is pushed all it does it slide. I thought if I could get the brake to release by pushing the TD9 with D8 CAT the engine would break loose. I have been adding acetone/transmission fluid for over a month. And the TD9 was running 3years ago. And there is no water in the engine oil so I do not think it could be that hard to break loose by pushing
  3. Thank you Louie, yes I do have the manual. And I did remove fuel tank, fenders, and top cover. The problem is the adjusting bolt does not allow a socket or open end wrench to fit between the bolt head and the bulkhead structure. I have seen other pictures posted here that show plenty of room to loosen the bolt. What would cause the adjusting bolt to be so close to the bulkhead? The way it is it would be impossible to adjust the brakes. If I can get the spring (46029D)and steering brake band adjusting bolt(46027D), I will cut the bolt with a torch. But that still does not explain why that bolt
  4. Replacing the brakes. I found the set screw and now I am trying to loosen the steering brake band adjusting bolt (46027D) without much luck. I will post a picture to show what the problem is.
  5. I am looking for that set screw location and a possible picture of its location. Manual says remove set screw and than remove top and bottom inspection covers. Thank you.
  6. Good afternoon. This is a picture of my TD9 adjusting bolt which does not allow for a socket or open end wrench. Based on your experience; how would you attack this situation? Both steering clutch brakes are seized on to the clutch not allowing the tracks to move. Along with the engine seized I have decided to solve the brake issue first. My friend that is helping has a D8 Cat that he was able to pull start it 3 years ago. But with the brakes stuck all we do is slide the track. My idea providing parts are available, is to cut the adjusting bolt at the spring with the gas ax.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you John

      First question.  Are you planning on removing the fuel tank and pulling the top deck?  This might be a faster and easier option then trying to do it all from underneath.

      If you want to try and do it from underneath the first thing that I would do is jack up the tractor and block it under the tracks to get some more room to work.  Second I would soak everything in PB blaster for a couple of days then I would put some heat on the brake band where the adjusting nut threads in (red hot) and try backing out the nut with a breaker bar.  If you can get it to budge then you should be able to break it free.  If this does not work then your only option is cutting the adjusting nut and spring.  This will allow you to release the brake but not remove it.  the only way to remove the brake band would be to pull the bottom pivot pin, which can be a complain if it is rusted in.  I would also suggest pulling out the bolt that locks in the pivot pin (you can see it sticking down in your photo) along with the threaded pipe plug and start soaking it with PB blaster as well.

      Hope this helps.

  7. MMI sorry I forgot to list model. It is a 1947 IH TD9 thank you
  8. Looking for a source to purchase the round inspection cover for inspection of steering clutch. Thank you
  9. Thank you Rustred the exhaust has been covered but it has sit for 4 years. Do you know if the hydraulic pump can be removed by using a puller? It appears that the coupling is a slip fit, is that correct.
  10. Asking for help again. This time I am not able to remove hydraulic pump from the TD9. It looks like it has a slip coupling because there is no visible bolt like I have seen in other Td's. But it refuses to move. Thank you John
  11. I have a 1947 TD9 with the hydraulic pump mounted in front of radiator like so many I have seen; however, this one has the hydraulic tank incorporated with the pump in front of the radiator. I would like to know the manufacturer? And if the pump is stuck, could it seem like the engine is seized? For the last month I have been spraying 50/50 acetone transmission fluid in cylinders. Have pulled valve cover and intake and exhaust manifolds used a 5' pipe wrench on the front of pump trying to spin engine with no luck. My friend even bumped it with his D8 Cat. My patience is running out. I an 4hour
  12. Thank you Louie. Same as my Farmall M
  13. I am looking for a shift pattern for TD9 built in 1947. Usually IH stamped it on the tractor but unable to find it on the TD9. Is this it with out the T/A? thank you john
  14. It does roll. Earl you are correct maybe be removing bucket would lower weight by 1500lbs. Nomorejohndeere it is in Philadelphia, Missouri about 2 hrs away from my farm
