  1. Never saw those before. Thanks td 5 for the post and photos. 20 years ago I had a machine shop do my log loader pins. They bored , in the shop, welded pipe in like you did, bored that to press in o.e.m. hard bushings and hard o.e.m. pins. Then hard shim washers and keep full of synthetic grease. A lot of work and money but it has lasted under hard use.
  2. What the **** is that 'line boring jig' on the angle head grinder? Glad to see you got the bull by the horns.
  3. At one time it was the other way around.
  4. The motor is available. We are less than an hour from Milford, PA., not far off 84 [ in nys] The price is very reasonable. The engine is at Keller's auto machine. 845-496-3775, Mike, one man shop, not young and all the problems that go with it. Tell him Doug from the sawmill told you. Does this forum have personal messages? Thanks for you interest, Doug
  5. I hope they [the mine] pay good, crawlers can get expensive. Look forward to seeing more progress.
  6. That machine was only used on Sunday's! Looks like your not afraid of work.
  7. Oh boy, that is hard to beat and bad. You have to wonder if they had drilled the first crack,veed and welded and stress relieved and put on reinforcement if it would have held. All that weld just cracked and traveled . These repairs seperate the men from the boys.
  8. Well I see there are still a few good old boys around. How is that crawler in the snow? When I ran in snow sometimes the tracks would tighten up and I was always afraid of damaging the final drives.
  9. 14 A engine is located in Orange county N.Y.  It has the injection pump on it. If somebody is real serious I can make sure it still turns as it has been a long time since it was assembled. As I remember they did alot of work to it. I once wanted it for a sawmill but there was too much missing to make it a power unit at that time.

  10. That's interesting. I had to say what I did because of the wasted time with guys who want to bolt it in an M.
  11. Just throwing this out there; a friend has in his shop a rebuilt, long block td 14A engine. It was professionally rebuilt years ago and never picked up. This is a 3 generation auto machine shop that is sadly winding down. I have tried to sell it in the past but everyone who showed up wanted it for a wheel [farm] tractor no matter what I had told them.
  12. Hay press was the proper name when they where stationary and hand, wire tie. Balers have wheels to go in the field with a pick up and automatic tie.
  13. That square Chevy pu, those all rusted out years ago up here in salt land, take care of that.
  14. There was a lot of respect for the IH dealer when I was a boy. Looking back I can see the owner bouncing back and forth between the shop and parts. He knew who you where and what model tractor you had and who your old man was and maybe your grandfather or uncle. And to think I took it all for granted.
  15. The best trick I know after silver paint is 609 locktite.
