  1. Hector, I'm interested...tell me more. Pirate
  2. Thanks Kevin, I'll take a look. Is there a difference between the UD-14 and the UD-14A engines...that you know of? Thanks, Pirate
  3. Had to look pretty closely. But on the right side of the engine block, just about the front, and about halfway down... hand stamped is UDFM21677 By that I mean it's easy to tell that someone with a set of alphanumeric stamps put the info on an intended flat spot on the block. Is this the Engine Model number? Pirate
  4. Yup, dry climate and getting drier. Where is is now...we typically get about 11 inches of rainfall. This year about 4.75" and we got 3.75" of that in the first "monsoon season" storm the first week of July. So roads on the place washed out, rock falls...but the weeds really didn't come up. Pirate
  5. hardtail, Posted more pictures last night. Mine is a single rear wheel grader with the steerable rear axle. More pics of engine area coming. Learning a bunch! Thanks guys! Pirate
  6. Mine has a four cylinder engine. Sitting in the grader, behind my left elbow, coming through the back of the cab is a choke knob pulled out to choke and push in to run. Where was the original located? Thanks! Life is meant to be a learning experience throughout...I have entered into another learning experience!!! Here are a few pics of the controls, and where it was and where it is now. Pirate
  7. Looking at the two graphics... the upper TD-18 engine appears to be a six cylinder engine. The lower a four cylinder engine. Mine has a four cylinder engine so the bottom graphic must be a 4 cylinder head. Fabulous! thebunns, can you get me a little closer to the "TD-14 parts manual (TC-25-B)" Am I correct I need to find the numbers on the engine block to find more accurate publications? Thanks so much for the responses!! Pirate
  8. I just became the owner of a Austin Western a search reveals it’s a 1947 99H grader. The grader was on the property of a family member. They wanted it gone. I have 94 acres and a great place for yard art. I went to where it has been sitting for some years. Came prepared and I found that it would start, the hydraulics all work, and the drive system works. This afternoon I took pix of the serial number plate on the grader frame and the engine information plate on the engine. Can't seem to figure out how to put a pic in, but the serial number is H538 The engine is a 653140 101, Serial Number 27040 I'm thinking of doing some restoration and using it here on the home place. But this post is an effort to find information on the motor, how it works with the gasoline start and shift to diesel. Having spent 35 years as a Mechanical Engineer in powerplants, and having rebuilt the powertrain from Model T to Harley Davidsons and now to Polaris Side-by-Side machines, oh and a 1930 Caterpillar D2 dozer. I'm very interested in the internals of the engine, drawings, cut away drawings, information on starting on gas, shifting to diesel. As much as I can find. Any one able to help me in my quest? Thanks, Pirate
  9. Thanks, I will post it there as well. Hopefully I can find that page...being my first day... Pirate

Am I correct that the gasoline side of the engine has no throttle control, it simply allows the engine to idle and warm up before shifting to diesel, at which point the throttle lever becomes active? Any one able to help me in my quest? Thanks, Pirate
